EUMEPS is a European association of the EPS industry, representing over
90% of the European manufacturing industry. The common interest between
members is a belief that EPS is the most cost effective packaging and
insulation material. EPS packaging is the best protective packaging for
valuable and fresh goods combining recyclability, sustainability and
competitiveness in a single packaging solution. For thermal insulation
in construction, EPS offers long-term properties such as high insulation
value, high compressive strength and moisture resistance. EPS is
lightweight, versatile, easy and completely safe to work with, making it
the ideal material in a wide range of applications. EPS has a key role in
ensuring safe, comfortable and energy efficient buildings, whilst also
contributing strongly to the mitigation of greenhouse gas emission.
EPS comprises about 35 per cent of the total thermal insulation market in
Europe and with over 55,000 people employed in the European EPS industry.
The role of EUMEPS is to ensure that the advantages of EPS are brought to
a larger audience. This is achieved by information sharing to enable an
informed dialogue with stakeholders on a national and European level.
