In Aschersleben (Saxony-Anhalt) we operate a recycling plant in which polystyrene regranulate is produced from polystyrene packaging using an extrusion process. The PS regranulate is used by numerous well-known manufacturers of insulation materials in the production of XPS insulation materials.
In addition, the manufacture of EPS regrind forms a second pillar. The product can be offered in different grain sizes depending on customer requirements.
The production facility in Aschersleben operates the recycling of expanded polystyrene packaging waste (EPS for short). The plant was built in 2003, and production finally began the following year. From the beginning, the goal of EPS recycling was to free the delivered EPS waste of contaminants by means of dry processing and then to regranulate it in the sense of material recycling using an extruder. The end product of the extrusion process is the secondary raw material polystyrene regranulate.
