Sulzer supports BEWiSynbra Groups circular EPS strategy

July 06/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Sulzer Chemtech has completed the design, installation and start-up of an advanced production line for expandable polystyrene (EPS) for the BEWiSynbra Group, said the company.

The company is one of Europes leading producers of EPS and the new unit will support its ambitious target to collect and recycle 60,000 tonnes of EPS annually by utilizing recycled materials as feedstock.

Sulzer, the leader in separation and mixing technology, has delivered a state-of-the-art EPS production line to the BEWiSynbra Groups facility in Porvoo, Finland. The new unit utilizes Sulzers patented extrusion-based melt impregnation technology and has the capacity to produce over 10,000 tonnes of EPS per year from both recycled as well as virgin materials.

The new asset will help the BEWISynbra Group expand its plastic manufacturing capacity while also enabling it to meet its circular economy targets. The production line can convert EPS post-consumer waste into new EPS material used in applications such as building insulation or packaging.

Jonas Siljeskar, CEO of the BEWiSynbra Group, comments: The new EPS extruder line designed and delivered by Sulzer allows BEWISynbra to broaden its EPS portfolio. It enables us to grow our volume of recycled materials, while improving our production efficiency as well as reducing our costs for repair and maintenance".

Philipp Suess, Head of Sulzer Chemtech ERA, concludes: It is exciting to see our solutions play a key role in increasing the competitiveness of our customers as well as supporting their ambitious sustainability practices. We look forward to working with BEWiSynbra Group in the future."

As per ICIS-MRC Price Report, spot prices of Russian EPS grew to the range of Rb90,000-96,000/tonne CPT Moscow, including VAT. Spot prices rose in July, despite lower contract prices. Formula prices for the largest buyers fell to the lowest level - Rb81,000-82,000/tonne CPT a converter's warehouse, including VAT, in July. Their recovery is expected in the coming months.  Prices of Chinese plants were still in the range of USD990-1,020/tonne CFR St Petersburg, excluding VAT, this week.
