A lucky coincidence: Like a genie in a bottle, a solid white foam emerged from a shoe polish can in 1949. It was the material, from which Fritz Stastny developed the material of the century: Styropor®.
From the ChemCycling project, the first prototypes of Styropor® CcycledTM will be presented at the K trade show. Applications such as pharmaceutical or fish boxes are indistinguishable in their properties from conventionally manufactured Styropor® products.
Styropor® and Neopor®: Important part of countless applications – important part of our everyday life.

Part of sustainability
Styrenic foams contribute significantly to the global CO2 emission reduction targets in the building sector. Mainly the thermal insulation solution of the building envelope reduces greenhouse gas emissions due to lower energy consumption for heating and cooling residential buildings. As packaging material, Styropor® not only protects electronic devices or food, it can also be recycled very well – either mechanically or chemically. more
