We take action in taking responsibility.

Effective environmental protection

Expandable polystyrene (EPS | Styrofoam®) makes a significant contribution to environmental protection because it consists of up to 98% air. This considerably reduces the CO₂ emissions. EPS convinces through its stability and protects the goods from breakage during transport. In the construction sector, the excellent insulating properties of EPS and Neopor insulating materials, a variant with added graphite, allow significant energy savings to be achieved. In this way you not only contribute directly to environmental protection, but also save heating costs.


Expandable polystyrene and polypropylene are 100% recyclable. It can be added to the production process of new packaging or insulation elements. Shredded, compacted and reextruded, it produces clothes hangers, garbage cans, plastic benches and much more. Bring your old packaging back to us and we will take care of the recycling. The two foam materials EPS and EPP are designed for sustainability and resource conservation throughout their entire life cycle.

Innovation of new solutions

The research and development department is constantly striving to develop new approaches and solutions for packaging and transport. The Schaumaplast Group was the first TÜV-certified processor to manufacture Biomass Balance Styrofoam from classic Styrofoam products. Biomass Balance Styrofoam can be produced with a reduced greenhouse gas emission of 75%.

airpop® Packaging

EPS/airpop® packaging can be recycled in many ways after use and thus protects valuable resources. Through simple melting processes, EPS packaging can be transformed into polystyrene and used to manufacture new plastic products.
After use, many Styrofoam® packaging materials find new application as insulating materials in buildings, where they reduce energy consumption and the CO₂ load.
If EPS packaging is not recycled, it can be used in modern combined heat and power plants to generate district heating. In this thermal recycling process, 1 kg EPS replaces 1.7 liters of heating oil and thus makes a significant contribution to conserving resources.

Are plastics climate-friendly?

Since EPS consists of 98 % air and only 2 % polystyrene, the material saves resources in a special way. At the same time, it performs exceptionally well. The lighter a vehicle is, the less petrol it needs. Of course, this also applies to the transport of products. This is why our particularly lightweight EPS packaging contributes directly to the fact that transporters, for example, consume less fuel. Due to the insulating properties of EPS packaging, especially for food, no additional cooling is necessary. This saves energy, protects the environment and reduces CO2 emissions. Airpop® (EPS) molded parts also save energy when insulating heating pipes or roller shutter boxes, thus protecting our climate.
