Since 1921, BRE is the reference point at an international level for all the studies and researches involving the materials sustainability (even EPS) in the field of construction.
The center has one of the most complete research and experimentation structure in the world and all the issues related to the use and sustainability of different construction materials and research on new materials. The test results on EPS show that, in every density tested, the EPS presents an A+ level, the highest score given by BRE and therefore the lowest environmental impact possible. The data are shown at the following link: www.bre.co.uk/greenguide
Indeed, the EPS lifecycle analysis have demonstrated that the EPS offers many advantages in terms of environmental impact. Moreover, the EPS is recyclable and the new technology techniques offers a range of solutions to achieve a maximum recover of the wastages.
