Plastics News – Styron exec says PS has good sustainability message.

We applaud plastic companies with enough morals to acknowledge the responsibility of the problems their products make.
One way that the industry can promote sustainability, according to Moyer, is through promoting use of non-recycled plastics into energy. He said that the U.S. currently has 86 plants using plastic and other waste materials to create 2,700 megawatts of electricity. This usage saves 30 million barrels of oil and prevents the release of 40 million tons of carbon dioxide.”  We need to increase this activity even more,” he said. “We need to get the message out.”
