Best available technique (BAT)
Since May 2017, the Basel Convention General Technical Guidelines recognise the PolyStyreneLoop dissolution process as a valid pre-treatment process for PS foam waste for the separation of polystyrene and HBCD. The process is also included as a best available waste treatment technique, along with incineration, regarding the destruction of the HBCD. This new framework ensures a global, long-term regulatory stability and is an essential condition for the development of the PolyStyreneLoop project.
