The Pyrowave Team is proud of the work completed over the past few months: the installation of a distillation column now helps generate more than 95% pure monomer, a clear liquid identical to the virgin material that petrochemical companies can then transform again indefinitely into polystyrene. This molecular recycling uses 15 times less energy compared with production from fossil material and therefore generates 3 times less GHGs.
