Insulrecycle® - The Future of Recycling Polystyrene Packaging

THERMAL BARRIERS OF THE PAST

  • Traditionally, a thermal barrier has been a material that can minimise heat or energy transfer, to protect temperature sensitive goods.
  • These barriers have been made from popular materials such as EPS (expanded polystyrene), which have been cheap and simple to construct for polystyrene packaging.
  • The energy required to manufacture and dispose of thermal barrier materials was never really considered.

THERMAL BARRIERS OF THE PRESENT

  • In today’s thermal barrier market, the focus is on managing the mechanics of heat, looking more at reflection, conduction and convection risks to goods.
  • With increasing costs of resources and energy, effort has been made to establish thermal barriers that are efficient to make and easy to handle.
  • With an increased use of thermal barrier material for one-way transport globally, the cost of disposal at end-of-life and environmental impact of increasing landfill is now becoming of greater importance, signifying the importance of recycling polystyrene packaging.

THERMAL BARRIERS OF THE FUTURE

  • The next generation of thermal barrier is expected to effectively manage the mechanics of heat, while being efficient to manufacture and handle.
  • It will be expected that thermal barrier materials will be made from recycled content and be recyclable itself at end-of-life, reducing environmental impact by avoiding landfill as waste.
