A new recycling method for expanded polystyrene
Abstract:A new recycling method was investigated in this work, in which polystyrene (PS) sub‐µm fibres were electrospun from recycled expanded polystyrene (EPS). The experimental results in this work show that fibres with diameters of around 500 nm were produced by the electrospinning method. The fibres were produced to form a non‐woven mat. Non‐woven mats of electrospun fibres have large surface areas and small pore sizes compared to commercial textiles, making them excellent materials for use in filtration applications.
