Polystyrene is a versatile plastic that plays an important role in our everyday lives – from food packaging and medical supplies to bike helmets and refrigerators. It’s our belief that it should be produced in the most sustainable way to serve our customers and the public and to protect our planet.

That’s what drives us. We’re proud to be a leader in sustainability – having developed an innovative circular recycling process that breaks down polystyrene into its original material, which can then be used to make products with the same quality and durability as the original polystyrene.

Our long-term vision is that polystyrene products should never be landfilled but reclaimed, reprocessed and reused again and again. As part of that commitment, we’ve pledged to have 30 percent recycled content in all materials for food packaging products by 2030.

Our Sustainability Beliefs

The plastic recycling problem can be fixed
POLYSTYRENE PLASTIC IS ESSENTIAL.

Life-enhancing products are necessary for many uses: medical, food packaging, home goods, consumer safety – the list goes on. They should be made from the most sustainable and climate favorable material possible.

Simplify recycling - All plastics in one recycling bin
PLASTIC PRODUCERS HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO LEAD RECYCLING INNOVATIONS.

We're committed to driving a rapid pace of change that results in plastic waste being repurposed into new plastic products. This includes expanding collection infrastructure to keep plastic waste out of the environment and landfills, coupled with new manufacturing capacity that converts plastic waste into sustainable, life-enhancing products.

Single-use items should be sustainable materials
PARTNERSHIPS ARE IMPERATIVE FOR CIRCULARITY TO BE REALIZED.

A future where all plastics are recycled will require a shared vision, collaboration, and commitments from manufacturers, processors, packaging companies – and more broadly, cities and states – to make recycling simple so everyone can participate. We’re forging these relationships every day to advance plastics recycling.

Our Circular Recycling Process

Solving the plastics recycling challenge means creating alternative uses for products that would end up in landfills.

At AmSty, that’s why we’re forging ahead with an innovative circular recycling technology that takes used polystyrene products and returns them to the same product with their original quality and durability.

AmSty Circular Recycling Process for Plastics / Polystyrene

Our Commitment

All AmSty resin that goes into food packaging and foodservice products will be made from 30% recycled materials by 2030.

In The Loop

Plastics are an important part of our everyday lives – from food containers and packaging that keep us safe and healthy, to medical supplies, insulation and more – but they must be managed responsibly. The reality is our plastics recycling system isn’t working. At AmSty, we’re committed to innovative solutions, starting with polystyrene, and we’re well on our way. We invite you to learn more about our future plans, the technology we use, and our progress to ensure a circular economy for plastic.
