INEOS Styrolution aims at meeting food contact standards for mechanically recycled polystyrene.

Together with technology partners, the company develops a super-clean process that produces polystyrene tested to food contact standards. Coexpan, a plastics converter that is part of the project, shows that it reaches food contact standards across all dairy formats using 100% mechanically recycled polystyrene from INEOS Styrolution. Additionally, Styrenics Circular Solutions (SCS), a value chain initiative bringing plastics producers, converters and brand owners together, has filed two applications for EU authorisation of mechanically recycled polystyrene as food contact material to be assessed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
