Innovative polystyrene, polypropylene & plastic packaging, bespoke packaging and technical parts - Knauf Industries.


Innovation is an integral part of KNAUF Industries.


NEOPS® is an alternative to expanded polystyrene (EPS). This material innovation from Knauf Industries was born out of a collaboration between ID lab and the producers of raw materials. NEOPS® is manufactured according to the concept of biomass balance *

REDcert² certified (new standard on the use of sustainable biomass in the chemical industry), this cellular material is non-petro-sourced and comes from non-food renewable resources (green waste) according to the Mass Balance method. This innovation reduces the use of fossil raw materials and greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) are reduced by at least 30%.

A NEOPS® product is 100% recyclable in the EPS sectors (sorting bins, collection points, KNAUF Circular). The technical performance of NEOPS® is identical to expanded polystyrene but with a better environmental impact. Different material grades are available with improved performance for thermal, fire resistance, shock absorption and food contact.

Biomass balance: the fossil raw materials necessary for the manufacture of polystyrene are replaced by renewable raw materials.
