LiteForm Takes Green Approach to ICF Production
LiteForm Technologies isn’t a typical insulated concrete forms (ICF) and building materials manufacturer. The Nebraska-based company is making impressive strides not only in their industry, but also for the environment.
For more than 30 years, LiteForm has been a leader in the ICF industry, proudly producing USA made products and developing the highest quality construction grade foam for homes, commercial buildings and decks. Their unique approach to concrete form production aims to reduce foam waste in landfills and preserve the beauty of our planet.
Polystyrene, most commonly known as styrofoam, is often thrown away with garbage, trucked off to landfills, where it can accidentally be consumed by small animals. Being an environmentally conscious company, LiteForm decided to take action and began recycling foam donated by local businesses in the South Sioux City community.
“Over the years, we’ve partnered with local businesses to recycle foam packaging materials to be reused at our facility in South Sioux City for LiteForm products,” said company president, Pat Boeshart. “Our facility has always been and always will be a zero-waste facility. At LiteForm we want to do our part to reduce foam waste in landfills.”
This past spring, LiteForm participated in a city wide event called, “Re-Event,” collecting a truckload of styrofoam. At Re-Event, Sioux City residents had the opportunity to dispose of hard-to-recycle items, including; electronics, plastic, ink cartridges, and styrofoam.
