    • 13,000 tonnes of airpop® recycled annually, representing a recycling rate of 33% of all French stock
    • 62% of corporate airpop® packaging is recycled annually
    • 65% of French airpop® packaging consumption recycled annually
    • Almost 800 airpop® collection points can be found in France

Like most homogeneous thermoplastic materials, Expanded Polypropylene fluidizes under the effect of heat and subsequently hardens on cooling, in a reversible process. Therefore, it can be recycled ad infinitum!
