HSV partners with Solvolyse pilot factory

At HSV, we embrace initiatives that benefit the environment and contribute to a better climate, such as recycling, optimal use and reuse of raw materials, and measures to reduce CO2 emissions.

For those reasons, HSV has entered a partnership with the Solvolyse pilot factory, an initiative of three suppliers of raw materials: Sunpor, ICL and Synbra.

Pilot factory, EPS recycling by Solvolyse

Until now, used EPS was processed in a waste incinerator at high temperatures. An additional processing method has now been introduced: Solvolyse. Solvolyse contributes to proper recycling of fire-retardant EPS. A pilot factory is currently being built in Terneuzen to apply this new recycling technique in the near future.

How does Solvolyse work?

Solvolyse makes it possible to dissolve the EPS product into its constituent ingredients. The raw materials, including polystyrene, are separated from each other. This approach makes it possible to break EPS back down to pure constituent elements, which can be used in countless new plastic product solutions and packaging materials. This will close the cycle and facilitates optimal reuse of materials.

Responsible recycling and reuse of materials

Responsible recycling and reuse of materials is a top priority for HSV. This approach benefits the environment and makes a serious contribution to the circular economy.

HSV, a conscious choice for sustainability

HSV has made the conscious decision to participate in sustainability initiatives, such as the Solvolyse project. We consider it our duty to deal judiciously and economically with raw materials and resources that are needed for the production of particle foam. In line with that perspective, HSV switched to green energy last year, reducing our use of natural gas by 100%. 

HSV has made a conscious choice to support sustainability.
