Is waste to energy an option for polystyrene recycling?

Waste to energy is possibly the ultimate in contaminant tolerant recycling.

Polystyrene has twice the calorific value of coal and as with any hydrocarbon when heated the hydro-carbon chains break up in the process of combustion liberating energy and the carbon molecules into the atmosphere.

Before we see 'waste to energy' as the final solution and the new-age alternative to landfill, where embodied energy is liberated to be frittered away on incandescent light bulbs pause to consider that resources can be passed onto future generations usefully applied in long life beneficial applications or as liberated carbon atoms to warm the atmosphere.

Poly Palace maintains zero waste to landfill applying all polystyrene Inflows to saleable applications to benefit current and future generations, an entirely different proposition than the short term benefit from generating current.
