Recycling yogurt cups in Germany
Ineos Styrolution has started a project with the Theo Müller Group for the recycling of polystyrene yogurt cups in Germany.
The goal is the depolymerisation of cups from the post-consumer sector. Styrene recovered by the recycling process is to be used in the production of polystyrene, which according to Ineos Styrolution will have the same properties as virgin.
The project is to move into commercial status in 2022.
