Quality- Environmental Management Policy



ISO icon

Within the framework of a client-oriented strategy and based on quality assurance, in Styropan we develop and apply a Quality Management System (QMS) in accordance with ISO 9001:2015. Thus, we are able to successfully conform to the international quality standards.


Our products meet the demands as dictated by the European Standards. The product conformity evaluation is performed according to the ΕΝ 13172 and based on external and internal controls and Factory Production Control – FPC in accordance with the EN 13163 for expanded polystyrene and with the EN 13164 for extruded polystyrene. The internal controls involve the thermal conductivity and resistance coefficient measurements, the mechanical strength measurements (compaction, bending, tension), the dimension measurements (length, width, thickness, rectangularity, flatness) and the reaction to fire.


 Quality control- Internal factory measurements of thermal conductivity λ coefficient.

Each package label bears the product designation code where all that technical information accompanying the product are mentioned and allow the buyer to evaluate its suitability for each construction application.

Respecting the environment and with the long-term goal of contributing to sustainable development, Styropan implements an Environmental Management system certified according to the ISO 14001: 2015 standard. The system ensures that at all stages of the production process of its products, the use of natural resources is minimized, the burden on the atmosphere is reduced as much as possible and significant amounts of energy are saved.

In parallel with the Environmental Management system, recycling is an integral part of the strategy in the direction of environmental protection. Either by recycling the polystyrene foam that results from the creation of thermal insulation boards and re-introducing it with the appropriate techniques in the production unit or by acting as a collection point for used polystyrene products by third parties (individuals, companies, cooperatives) to be recycled as raw material for the production of new Styropan polystyrene products.

Being committed to contributing to sustainable development and reducing the environmental burden of plastics, Styropan is a member of the Operation Clean Sweep program.

Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS) is an international program designed to prevent the loss of plastic granules (pellets, flakes and powders) during handling by the various entities in the plastics value chain and their release into the environment.

More specifically, Styropan applies the required practices at all stages of its production process, from the receipt and unpacking of raw materials to the distribution of final products in the form of thermal insulation boards and packaging boxes in the network of its partners, so that to minimize the leakage of plastic micro-substances into the environment.
