FRANKFURT/ Germany

  • Styroflex® ECO is based on bio-attributed styrenics
  • INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announces today that nora by Interface, the commercial rubber flooring brand of Interface, has selected Styroflex® ECO 2G66 B60 to support the company’s efforts to lower the carbon footprint of its products as it endeavors to become a carbon negative enterprise by 2040.

    Marcela Villegas, Director Product Management Specialties EMEA at INEOS Styrolution, comments: “We are proud to work with nora systems. Our two companies share the same entrepreneurial spirit and the same passion for sustainable solutions.”

    Styroflex ECO is the recently introduced[1] extension to the Styroflex product line with materials based on bio-attributed styrenics.
