Remember at the beginning of March 2020, Knauf Industries launched NEOPS®, its new alternative foam material to expanded polystyrene (EPS), which is of non petro-sourced origin and favours the circular economy of plastics.
A low carbon material innovation from Knauf Industries, born from a collaboration between our Innovation & Development Center ID Lab and raw material manufacturers.
NEOPS® is officially certified according to REDcert², standard on the use of sustainable biomass in the chemical industry.
The sites concerned are :
This material innovation contributes to the circular economy of plastics as it reduces the use of fossil raw materials and CO2 emissions by at least 30%.
A product made of NEOPS® is 100% recyclable in the EPS (sorting bins, waste sorting centers, collection points) and KNAUF Circular® sectors.
The technical performance of NEOPS® is identical to expanded polystyrene but with a better environmental impact.
Different material grades are available depending on the performance required: thermal, flame retardant, insulation, fire resistance, shock absorption and food contact.
