Description of the company and its technology

Polystyvert Inc. has developed a proprietary system for polystyrene recycling. The dissolution of polystyrene into a solvent at the generator’s site allows for an ecological and economical collection method, lowering transportation costs and dividing GHG emissions by ten. Polystyvert also innovated with a novel technology to produce high quality polystyrene pellets by washing the polymer from its additives while separating it from the solvent which is also being recycled.
