Polystyrene is a very flexible plastic that can be stiff or lathered. Along with polyethylene, polystyrene dominates the plastics product market. In 1996, 6. 1 billion extra pounds of virgin PS resin were created in the U. S. In March 1996, Franklin & Associates estimated for EPA the amount of PS in items thrown out in the metropolitan waste stream at 2. 53 million bunches for 1994. General estimates of California PS rigid packaging generation, extracted from the Society of Plastics Industries and factored to California, indicate that about 31,400 lots of PS product packaging containers were generated in California in 1996.
