Recycling programs for EPS, a foam used to protect products in transportation, food packaging and construction materials, have been growing for nearly two decades. In part, the growing success of EPS recycling can be attributed to companies like NOVA Chemicals, which has been creating innovative solutions for collecting EPS for recycling for the last five years. That's why the company is being honored with the EPS Industry Alliance's annual Excellence in EPS Recycling award.

Pacific Allied Products, a major plastics manufacturer located in Oahu, Hawaii, has been presented with the EPS Industry Alliance's 2016 Excellence in EPS Recycling Award. The award, created in 2013, is given to a company or organization that has proven their commitment to expanded polystyrene (EPS) recycling.
The EPS Industry Alliance (EPS-IA) has released its annual report documenting the amount of expanded polystyrene (EPS) recycled throughout the United States. The 2013 EPS Recycling Rate Report shows continuous growth in the amount of EPS recycling as a result of ongoing collection and processing technology advancements and new market developments for recycled EPS. The report illustrates that more than 125 million pounds of EPS was recycled last year, which includes all post-consumer, post-commercial and industrial recovery. This information was collected from 41 EPS manufacturers and independent recyclers within the U.S.
