FAQs

What is PolyRenew® Polystyrene?
The PolyRenew® line of products represents the latest advancements in polystyrene pellets made with sustainability in mind. PolyRenew® 1625 is made with post-consumer recycled polystyrene, developed for use in foodservice applications. Other PolyRenew® Polystyrene products help reduce energy consumption during production and our PolyUsable® concept aims to produce products made from recycled styrene monomer. Read more about that here.


Where can PolyRenew® Polystyrene products be used?
PolyRenew® products can be used in any foodservice application that would normally use general purpose polystyrene.

Can polystyrene be recycled?
Yes! Polystyrene is currently recycled into many other products, such as picture frames, cornices and moldings, base boards, office supplies and more. However, the newest innovation in polystyrene recycling is happening with our joint-venture Regenyx. The new recycling process allows Polystyrene to be recycled back into the same applications where the products originated.


Did the U.S. FDA approve PolyRenew for use in food packaging products?
