ECOPSE is the French national association for expanded polystyrene (polystyrene expanse). It has represented eps/pse manufacturers for more than twenty years. Its members manufacture more than 6,000 tonnes of fishboxes as an essential packaging for the French fish and seafood market.
IKOS OVE, one company near to Boulogne sur mer harbour aims to recycle EPS fish boxes with other polystyrene packaging in order to produce PS pellets. These pellets will be used in office products like pens, boxes etc.
On a national level, ECO EMBALLAGES (the private company accredited by the French public authorities to organize the sorting and selective collection of household packaging) is processing a test to increase the household plastics recycling rate.
ECOPSE follows the progress of these two initiatives by the project RECYCL’EPS. The goal is to show that EPS fish boxes + EPS/PS household packaging could be recycled into office product applications.
