COOPERATION PROJECT BETWEEN INCIEN AND THE ASSOCIATION OF PRODUCERS OF EXPANDED POLYSTYRENE (EPS)
As part of the international association within the framework of the Plastics Strategy, the Slovak Association EPS SR has set a bold voluntary recycling target that in 2025 the recycling rate in Slovakia will reach more than 50% in the field of packaging expanded polystyrene as well as construction.
Part of the achievement of the ambitious goal was the creation of cooperation with the non-profit organization Institute for Circular Economy. The aim of the cooperation was to:
- analyze the status of information regarding the entire material flow, from production to waste generation from EPS
- obtain EPS data, both the amount of material produced and recycled and the potential to meet the circularity goal on the Slovak market
- propose solutions to achieve these objectives and start effective cooperation on its solution.
