Styrofoam is a wonderful insulator,
. . . but, is:
. . . . . . non-biodegradable,
. . . . . . releases toxic fumes when burned, and takes
. . . . . . 500 years to breakdown.
Polyvinyl alcohol, bonds with nanocellulose crystals, derived from wood pulp,
. . . makes the resultant foams more elastic, and makes it a good insulator.
. . . It is light yet can support up to 200 times its own weight without changing shape.
. . . It degrades well, and burning it doesn’t produce toxic ash.
