SUSTAINABILITY


BOLD AMBITIONS

We’re committed to doing what’s right for our people, our customers and the environment. It’s what drives us. That’s why, as a start, we’ve pledged that all products designed for foodservice and food packaging applications will contain 30% recycled content by 2030.

POLYRENEW® PRODUCTS

Our customers and theirs increasingly want products produced in a more sustainable way. Learn how PolyRenew® is making our customers happy and our planet a better place.

Regenyx - A New Way to RecycLE

What if cups, takeout containers and other polystyrene foam was continuously recyclable and kept out of our landfills? It is, thanks to the innovative work at Regenyx, a joint venture between AmSty and Agilyx.

Who We Are and What We Do


A leading producer of polystyrene and styrene monomer, AmSty is a pioneer in circular recycling of polystyrene, a versatile plastic that now can be recycled over and over again. It plays an important role in our everyday lives in:
  • Food packaging
  • Medical supplies
  • Bike helmets
  • Refrigerators
The list is extensive. We offer innovative solutions and services to customers around the globe, producing monomer and styrene monomer, the building blocks of those products and more.
We’re proud to be an industry leader in sustainability and developing a truly circular economy for polystyrene – and eventually all plastics. We believe that this in-kind recycling – where products are returned to their original application, quality and durability – is the key to keeping plastic out of our landfills. In fact, our long-term vision is that polystyrene should never be landfilled but reclaimed, reprocessed, and reused over and over.
Our innovative approach not only protects our planet, but provides sustainable solutions for customers who, too, are committed to making the world a better place.
