fossil vs. renewable raw materials
At the beginning of the production chain of Biomass Balance eps, renewable raw materials are used instead of fossil raw materials. In this respect, crude oil stays undisturbed in the Earth and greenhouse gas emissions are reduced.
The wider manufacturing process of eps raw material remains unchanged. This ensures that Biomass Balance eps retains exactly the same properties as conventional Styrofoam.
The Balanced Biomass Approach is subject to strict regulations; being audited and independently certified by TÜV Süd (a leading international expert in providing testing and product certification).
EXAMPLE PROJECT ICEGUERILLA
In the production of IceGuerilla refrigerated packaging, 100% of the required fossil raw materials have been substituted with sustainable raw materials.
Did you know: In Germany, the recycling rate of EPS packaging stands at an unparalleled 56% and for that reason the country serves as a worldwide role model.
Schaumaplast is the first
of Biomass Balance eps.
The use of one ton of biomass eps saves an equivalent of approximately 1,700 kg (3,750lb) of CO2 compared to ‘conventional’ eps. This corresponds approximately to a 10,000-kilometer (6,200-mile) car journey.
* At a consumption of 6.9 liters (1.8 gallons) of gas per 100 kilometers (62 miles).
