RAPAC earns GRS certification for second year in a row
RAPAC's EcoSix recycled resin products have received the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) certification for the second year in a row. RAPAC says that it has made ongoing efforts to promote the circular economy, reduce waste, and increase sustainability practices across its operations.
The GRS is an international, voluntary, full-product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions.
"This achievement is a testament to our commitment to sustainable practices and our ongoing efforts to make a positive impact on the environment," said Stephen Doorley, Plant Manager at RAPAC. "We believe that recycling plays a crucial role in creating a more circular economy and are determined to lead the way in promoting sustainable solutions."
RAPAC is a recycler of expanded polystyrene (EPS) and services companies worldwide with a diverse range of products. The company offers applications of polystyrene including both EPS and PS products, as well as proprietary, custom resins for a multitude of industries and applications.
Through GRS's third-party verification process, RAPAC was able to verify the recycled content of its products, as well as responsible social, environmental, and chemical practices in its production. The certification defines requirements to ensure accurate content claims, good working conditions, and minimal harmful environmental and chemical impacts for companies in more than 50 countries.
