EPS packaging

Packaging: EPS packaging supports hygiene and helps prevent food-waste because it resists humidity and, unlike alternative packaging materials, EPS does not support the spread of bacteria, mould and fungi, thus keeping the food safe. It maintains its shape, size and structure when other materials lose their functionality. Due to its cushioning abilities, the loss of resources decreases tremendously because goods packaged in EPS do not break (no loss by damage).

Amazing: A material that only consists of 98% air and is one of the best materials in the world when it comes to protecting and insulating. What is also amazing is what EPS® does for Mother Nature. Because EPS® is so light – and saves immense amounts of fuel during transportation and therefore reduces climate-damaging CO2 emissions.

Less CO2 emissions

“A material that only consists of 98% air and is one of the best materials in the world.”

EPS helps saving millions of tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. Approximately 75% of the EPS produced in Europe is used in the construction sector. Houses around the world are renovated using EPS as insulation to improve their energy efficiency. Studies have shown that the insulation capacity of EPS exceeds that of competing products. Also when used as packaging e.g. in food logistics and catering, the light weight and superior thermal insulation properties of EPS reduce the need for heating and cooling, e.g. with heavy ice, saving energy during transport and storage.
