Environmental impact

No impact upon the environment

EPS is one of the best insulation materials with respect to environmental impact. EPS does not and has never used CFCs or HCFCs in its manufacturing process. Therefore it does not damage the ozone layer. The environmental effects of the manufacture of EPS raw material (expandable polystyrene bead) and its conversion to EPS insulation material are small. LCA analysis by the Building Research Establishment, UK (BRE) places EPS at the best possible environmental ranking: A+
