EPS is extremely “GREEN“. NEVER any CFC’s, NEVER any HCFC’s.
Expanded Polystyrene has always been CFC- and HCFC-free. ICA is an environmentally conscientious manufacturing plant. Our in-house EPS trim is recycled and we accept recyclable EPS from our customers and the public, significantly reducing the amount of EPS that would potentially end up in landfills. In 1994 ICA installed a pentane collection system for air quality control. The system captures the pentane that is released during production and reroutes it through our boiler. This reduces the amount of natural gas we use, saving natural resources while being environmentally responsible. We continued our efforts to be mindful of our environment by installing solar panels and replacing our lighting with energy efficient fixtures. All of these actions help to keep the air of our planet cleaner and lessen the impact of landfills on the population.
EPS Insulation is composed of organic elements – carbon, hydrogen and oxygen – and does not contain chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or hydro chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). For more information on EPS visit EPS Industry Alliance.
Due to our green efforts, in 2011 we were happy to announce our ICA-LITE® EPS panels and ICA-GEOFOAM were approved to add LEED® points to construction projects.
