If they ban styrofoam by name, there will be no difference. "Styrofoam" is a
trademarked name for molded polystyrene. Other companies can manufacture the
identical product under a different name.
The concept is similar to "Sheetrock" vs. drywall.
Close, but no. Styrofoam is extruded foam sheets, it is not molded.
I've been in the eps molding business for the past 43 years and we do
not use Dow Styrofoam.
Polystyrene foam is a good energy source in trash to energy plants. It
contains 18,000 BTU per pound.
I was simply asking what was the point of providing a link to something
that was not made of styrofoam in a thread that was discussing the banning
of styrofoam. Providing a link to a ziplock bag and saying "This is not
styrofoam" would have been just as useful - and just as pointless.
Oh, that part.
The point is, if they ban Styrofoam, we can use this stuff instead.
I believe we already use of lot of biodegradable stuff.
I have no idea how much Styrofoam is being used now,
but I can't think of anything I want that's made out of Styrofoam...
At my work cafeteria, they had clear plastic looking containers. Some kind
of food product material, rice ? Felt like plastic. I never looked for a
recycle mark. Should not need one ?
My deck is polystyrene, which is what styrofoam is made from. I hope it
does not catch fire !!
