VS: 2013 studie toont continue groei in de hoeveelheid gerecyclede EPS verpakkingen

10 oktober 2014

The 2013 Expanded Polystyrene Recycling Rate Study was conducted by the EPS Industry Alliance (EPS-IA). The 2013 results reflect a modest decrease in the amount of post-industrial pounds recycled and a substantial increase in the number of post-consumer pounds recycled.
More than 125 million pounds of EPS was recycled during 2013. This figure includes 72.8 million pounds of post-commercial and post-consumer packaging and 54.5 million pounds of post-industrial recovery. Since 1991, EPS recycling has demonstrated stable, incremental growth and steady end-use market developments. This growth can be attributed to innovative and sustainable programs specifically geared to EPS recycling.
