The Woodlands, Texas – July 2, 2019 – AmSty, a major polystyrene producer, has developed a high-efficiency foam grade resin that allows foam density and part weight to be reduced by 10-15%. The reduced density also increases foam extrusion line rates by 10-15%, according to company spokesman Gary Welsh, Senior Technical Service & Development Leader. “The lighter density of this PolyRenew® resin will help manufacturers reduce energy usage and produce fewer greenhouse gasses,” says Welsh. Everyday items like carryout food containers, meat trays, and school lunch trays can use less material than before with no loss in performance.
The Woodlands, Texas – June 21, 2019 – AmSty, together with industry partners, has sponsored a 60-day recycling demonstration project managed by the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) known as the Pacific Northwest Secondary Sorting Demonstration Project.
