Omaha, NE: Integritemp, a division of Plastilite, is excited to announce the introduction of REFOAM, an environmentally friendly Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) product that is both oxo-biodegradable and recyclable.
“We’ve been in R&D mode with REFOAM for the last few years working to create a material that will give our customers all the familiar benefits of EPS, but with added environmentally friendly end of life options.” said Jon Ehly President & CEO. “It really presents the best of both worlds. REFOAM has been lab tested to be shelf stable for a couple years in dry storage conditions and remains recyclable. At the same time materials that are disposed of in bioreactive landfills, or escape into nature, will be submitted to conditions optimal for promoting the oxo-biodegradation process.”
REFOAM will become available in the first quarter of 2019 and will be able to replace traditional EPS in a number of products, such as; foam insulated shipping coolers, protective packaging, and various retail and consumer goods. The arrival of REFOAM will be a welcomed alternative to those customers that have been demanding environmentally friendly options that are still affordable.
