We are the national industry body for all manufacturers and distributors of expanded polystyrene (EPS) products across Australia
Originally established as Recycling Expanded Polystyrene Australia (REPSA), we rebranded to Expanded Polystyrene Australia (EPSA) in 2009. This name better reflects our mission: representing all facets of the EPS industry. Our commitment to recycling took a significant leap forward in 2023 with the launch of the StyroCycle program. This initiative places drop-off bins at manufacturing sites, making it easy for the community to responsibly dispose of their clean expanded polystyrene packaging waste. Promptly repurposed, this waste transforms into new products, like insulation for energy-efficient buildings.
EPSA currently has 23 members with manufacturing facilities across 41 sites throughout the country, representing Australia’s largest EPS manufacturers. EPSA members include manufacturers of products ranging from packaging for fresh produce (fruit, vegetables, seafood) through to a wide variety of building and construction applications including insulated sandwich panels, domestic wall cladding systems and under slab void filler pods as well as the raw material resin suppliers.
