INEOS Styrolution, EGN and Tomra team up on PS recycling project for food packaging

INEOS Styrolution, a global leader in styrenics; Tomra, a world leader in waste transformation; and EGN Entsorgungsgesellschaft Niederrhein, a leading recycling company, announce a ground-breaking project to convert post-consumer polystyrene (PS) waste into recycled PS for food packaging applications.

 

EGN will build a green field state-of-the-art advanced mechanical recycling facility processing with a capacity to process 40kt of post-consumer PS waste per year. It is expected to be the first large-scale facility of its kind.

 

Pierre Vincent, Managing Director EGN, said, “We share INEOS Styrolution’s vision of closing the loop for food-contact quality polystyrene. I expect the dairy industry to especially benefit from this new offering by allowing them to mechanically recycle from yoghurt pot to yoghurt pot creating a true circular economy for this material.”


PS recycling

INEOS Styrolution partners with EGN and Tomra to recycle post-consumer PS waste into food contact PS.


EGN will manage sorting and washing, while INEOS Styrolution will be responsible for the “super-cleaning” purification process to comply with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) requirements for food contact applications.

 

The new facility will be located in Krefeld, Germany. It is expected to start up in mid-2025, allowing INEOS Styrolution to start serving customers at commercial scale.

 

Steve Harrington, CEO, INEOS Styrolution, added, “This is an exciting step forward for our industry. Our three companies bring complementary expertise to this project, and because of this unique collaboration, we will be able to provide customers high-performing circular polystyrene produced at a significantly lower carbon footprint.”

 

An agreement with Tomra to provide sorting technology and feedstock completes the project. Tomra Feedstock will collect post-consumer polystyrene waste from disposed food packaging and deliver it to the new site in Krefeld, Germany.

 

Jürgen Priesters, Managing Director Tomra Feedstock, commented, “We are proud to contribute to this first commercial-scale polystyrene mechanical recycling facility for food contact applications. Polystyrene has the right composition to be recycled mechanically for food applications. The mission of Tomra Feedstock is to keep PS in true circularity.”
