We succeeded!

On June 16th, we will celebrate the Grand Opening of the PS Loop plant

Successful completion of the ‘PSLoop Project’

MARCH 29TH, 2024 Recycling Technology for Expanded Polystyrene containing legislated HBCD proven to be successful Over the last years the EPS industry has invested significant amounts of financial resources and technical support effort into the ‘PSLoop Project’, a demonstration plant in Terneuzen (NL) designed to prove that the proprietary solvent-based recycling technology can successfully remove…

New Milestone PS Loop B.V.

FEBRUARY 15TH, 2024 NEW MILESTONE TOWARDS A CIRCULAR ECONOMY FOR THE EPS INDUSTRY PS Loop B.V. has successfully achieved a major milestone by continuously producing 5 tons recycled polystyrene per week (Loop_PS) from EPS construction waste containing the legacy flame retardant HBCD. Test results have proven that the Loop_PS remains well below the UTC, the…

Operation PS Loop B.V.

JUNE 12, 2023 UNIQUE RECYCLING SOLUTION FOR EPS INSULATION MATERIALS LAUNCHED The first industrial plant for recycling EPS insulation materials goes into regular operation this summer: the innovative CreaSolv® Technology enables PSLoop to recycle HBCD-containing polystyrene foams on an industrial scale and testifies to the industry’s great innovative strength. After the German EPS Converters (GEC)…


In a Circular Economy we want to keep resources in use for as long as possible and recover them at the end of their service life to be re-used as raw material for new products.

The PolyStyreneLoop recycling project

PolyStyreneLoop contributes to the Circular Economy by recycling polystyrene (PS) foam demolition waste containing HBCD.


PolyStyreneLoop is located in Terneuzen, the Netherlands. The plant has a capacity to recycle 3,300 tons per year of PS-foam demolition waste containing HBCD. The plant will produce approximately 3,000 tons of Loop-PS recyclate to be used for the production of new insulation material. The HBCD removed during the Solvent-based Purification process is treated by the Bromine Recovery Unit (BRU) of our partner and member ICL. In the BRU, the bromine is recovered and HBCD safely destroyed. The BRU is located next to the PolyStyreneLoop plant.
