Greiner Packaging has become the newest member of Styrenics Circular Solutions (SCS), the value chain initiative to increase the circularity of styrenic polymers.
The platform aims to strengthen the sustainability of styrenic products while improving resource efficiency within the Circular Economy. Greiner joins current SCS member companies COEXPAN, ELIX Polymers, Exiba, INEOS Styrolution, Repsol, TOMRA, Total, Trinseo and Versalis (Eni).
The company is committed to developing sustainable plastics solutions for a functioning circular economy, and is already involved in a chemical recycling project with Trinseo, which made joining SCS a ‘natural step’, said Konrad Wasserbauer, director circular economy of Greiner Packaging.
“Polystyrene is highly recyclable even for food contact applications and thus has a crucial role to play in the circular economy.”
