Ineos Styrolution Eco

  • Recycling solutions for styrenics.
    No littering, no landfill.
  • Innovative performance. No downcycling.
  • Plastics based on renewables.

Plastics play a fundamental role in modern life. They have transformed many of the applications in which they are used – for the better.

For example, lighter, stronger vehicle components mean safer transport requiring less fuel or power. Packaging that protects and preserves food, reducing food waste and the need for preservatives. Sterile packaging helps to improve healthcare in cities and inaccessible parts of our world, whilst insulation makes modern buildings far more energy-efficient.

We want to show that plastic is not evil. Only plastic waste is. So we are taking back plastic waste and recycling it.

Together with our experience and expertise as the global leader in styrenics and our dedication to care for our planet, we want to help make the circular economy a reality.

We have combined recycling with the unique, high-performing properties of styrenics in an innovative way to offer a new brand: INEOS Styrolution ECO

TAKING THE “SINGLE” OUT OF SINGLE USE

Being lightweight, durable, hygienic and affordable, polystyrene is a great choice for food packaging as it extends the shelf life of food, keeping it fresher and safer. Due to its unique chemical properties, polystyrene is particularly well suited for recycling.

To maximise this intrinsic value so that it is not lost forever, we are converting post-consumer polystyrene waste, back into its building block styrene monomer, through a process called depolymerisation. This can be reused again to make new polystyrene products. With high quality and without any impurities.

During the next cycles, the material will continue to contribute to lightweight solutions, enjoy a new life as a yoghurt cup or a food tray, and help conserve and extend the life of food once again.

Together with leading-edge technology companies, INEOS Styrolution is revolutionising the recycling of polystyrene is therefore building a circular economy for polystyrene and prevent it from being incinerated or ending up in landfill.

BUILDING THE BEST RECYCLED ABS IN THE WORLD

ABS is a styrenics material that, due to its light weight, helps conserve energy and reduces fuel consumption in the automotive industry, reduces energy consumption by insulating buildings, and protects electronic equipment with aesthetic and durable housings. To make sure this valuable material is not wasted and disposed after one use, we have optimised a process called mechanical recycling. This is a method by which industrial or post-consumer waste is physically processed back into pellets, without changing the basic chemical structure of the material. Using our expertise, experience and research capabilities as the global leader in styrenics, we produce high-quality recycled ABS that performs as well as non-recycled ABS grades.

Our customers benefit from unparalleled performance with no downcycling – and are closer to meeting their sustainability targets.

PERFORMANCE POWERED BY NATURE

As part of our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint and save valuable resources – both for our company as well as for our customers – we are working on offering the integration of renewable feedstock as a replacement for fossil fuel.

The renewable feedstock that we source does not compete with food and complies with the highest sustainability certification criteria. This approach allows us to create more sustainable supply chains, while retaining our already optimised and highly efficient infrastructure and processes.
