Tomra: Important Step For SCS As Plastics Sorting And Recycling Experts Join The Organisation Styrenics
Tomra a recognized technology leader in collection and recycling of plastic packaging. Exiba, the European Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Board Association, the organization of producers of extruded polystyrene foam (XPS).Jens Kathmann, Secretary General of SCS, commented: “This is an important step for SCS as we build further along the value chain, welcoming the mixed plastics sorting experts Tomra to our organisation. Targeting styrenics in the waste streams as feedstock for our recycling is one of SCS’ priorities, knowing that once sourced, polystyrene is highly recyclable for high quality applications, even into food contact standards.”
Exiba: Key Contributor To European Thermal Insulation Sector Joins SCS’ Drive For Full Circularity Of Styrenics
Jens Kathmann, Secretary General of SCS, commented: “All of the SCS team extends a very warm welcome to Exiba. Their own membership represents themajority of the production capacity of XPS foams within Europe and is an important player in the European building and construction sector. This means that with Exiba as SCS members, we have another very important part of the value chain working with us to exploit the unique capacity that styrenics have for circularity.”
