Construction is completed on the deepwater dock in St. James. AmSty becomes the first styrene facility along the Mississippi to allow access for loading large oceangoing vessels.
infrastructure as a founding member of the Foodservice Packaging Institute's Foam Recycling Coalition.
AmSty forms Regenyx, a joint venture with Agilyx, to commercialize a new way of recycling polystyrene. With this process, used polystyrene products are collected, converted to feedstock, then remade into products with the same quality and durability - like aluminum cans. This circular recycling process means polystyrene products are no longer single use and they don't end up in a landfill. We call this the PolyUsable™ cycle; a way to recover and reuse products that were once single-use.
The American Chemistry Council Recognizes AmSty with a Sustainability Leadership Award for the success in circular polystyrene recycling through joint venture Regenyx.
AmSty commits to 25% recycled polystyrene in all foodservice food packaging by 2030.
AmSty expands the PolyRenew® brand resin line with the launch of additional high efficiency products.
Through Regenyx, AmSty has recycled more than 1.5 million lbs of polystyrene - the equivalent of more than 56 million foam cups.
