EPS Cycle is a pan European take back system, which describes how used EPS can effectively be taken back for use in the production of new EPS materials. As such it is a mark of commitment to the circular economy for both the companies and the national associations associated with EPS Cycle.
EPS Cycle manages EPS materials from construction as well as packaging. The National EPS Industry Association furthermore seeks to establish correct and effective collection and sorting of EPS demolition waste.
