INEOS Styrenics Announces Launch of New Sustainable Line of Polystyrene Grades

INEOS Styrenics announces the introduction of a new line of polystyrene products containing post consumer recycled polystyrene in North America. The new product launch includes two products each with 25% post consumer recycle content supplied by NextLife™.

The new grades of polystyrene are FDA approved for food contact and designed for injection molding applications requiring consistent resin properties. The resins also process the same as 100% virgin polystyrene. The target applications include injection molded opaque articles, such as cutlery, housewares, office accessories and appliance components.

"Nextlife's ability to provide sustainable post consumer FDA approved polystyrene resin helps create a true closed loop recycling solution. This collaboration with INEOS Styrenics is not only good for both of our companies; it is also good for the industry. Reuse through closed loop recycling has always been the best solution." said Robert Dishman, Vice President of Nextlife.

NextLife is a manufacturer of sustainable plastic resins. Their high performance re-engineered sustainable resins can be customized for use in a wide variety of applications, including consumer products. The carbon footprint of a NextLife resin is 70 percent less than that of a virgin resin, helping businesses create high-quality green products that are attractive to consumers.
