Polystyvert has developed an innovative technology that can recycle polystyrene in a closed loop. The PS is dissolved in a concentrator containing a non-toxic essential oil, installed on-site of PS waste generators, such as a company, an eco-center, a sorting center. The PS is then dissolved and converted into high quality recycled PS pellets at Polystyvert and then reintroduced to the market. This process drastically reduces GHG emissions and PS transportation costs. This process also recycles contaminated PS, including flame retardants, industrially. Polystyvert has also developed other innovations, such as separation of dissolved PS from its solvent, and purification. The recycling method of Polystyvert is more efficient, ecological and economical compared to existing methods. Currently, the PS is not or very little recycled.
