Leading packaging producer CEDAP, Compagnie Européenne Des Applications Plastiques, has become the newest member of Styrenics Circular Solutions (SCS), the value chain initiative to increase the circularity of styrenic polymers.
As specialists in sheet extrusion for the packaging industry, the company is one of the market leaders in food- contact polystyrene sheet extrusion for Form Fill Seal (FFS) processing technology and a major supplier to the dairy sector and its leading brands. Joining SCS demonstrates the company’s commitment to the circular value of polystyrene and its support for the sustainability aims of its customers.
“The closed loop recycling of the material into food contact quality will enable us to combine polystyrene’s known qualities in FFS processing, cost effectiveness, lower energy and CO2 emissions with the unique circular value of polystyrene to the benefit of our brand-owner customers,” said Djivan Djierdjian, executive director of Siamp-Cedap.
“The commitment of a leading packaging producer such as CEDAP to polystyrene and its circular value is significant for our further, successful collaboration across Europe,” said Jens Kathmann, Secretary-General of SCS.
“By endorsing recycled polystyrene (r-PS) as a drop-in solution, they are providing another important stepping-stone towards the uptake of food contact quality recycled polystyrene in the market.”
