Polystyrene is widely used as packaging and insulating material. The same qualities that make it extremely useful also make it challenging to recycle: it consists of about 90% air, which means that discarded polystyrene can easily blow away in the wind, is therefore difficult to collect; and because it is bulky it is expensive to transport. Used polystyrene items that become part of the waste stream are usually compacted into more manageable smaller volumes.

At Akura, we work with our clients to create an innovative solution for their unique setup. Our own dedicated staff team up with international specialists, HEGER, to ensure we design the best extrusion system for optimal recycling volumes.
