International Cooperation/EPS is recycled around the world

Promotion of recycling through the international collaboration

EPS is distributed all around the world accompanying imported and exported products, and finishes its life as a packaging material in the country of consumption. Environmental problems will not be solved if countries neglect EPS waste simply because it is not a material made domestically. In 1992, therefore, Japan, the United States, Germany and Austria concluded an international agreement whereby they are to recycle imported EPS packaging material in the same manner as domestically made material. Our slogan is gREGARDLESS OF COUTRY OF ORIGINh.
