A cooperative company involving stakeholders from across the PS value chain.
Economic feasibility and viability are crucial for industrial scale material recycling; the detailed business plan for the demo plant confirms such feasibility. However, some challenges need to be overcome such as the availability of waste PS foam and the transport logistics during the first few years of operation. These elements are a priority for the PolyStyreneLoop Foundation, and will be addressed in parallel to the engineering of the demo plant to ensure that the plant capacity can be sufficiently exploited.
The demonstration plant has the form of a cooperative under Dutch law, involving actors from the whole PS value chain as cooperators.
