Continuous improvement of the polystyrene recycling

During the past years, people seldom thought of polystyrene waste when talked about environment pollution, few of people would think of the EPS foam, either. These materials are recyclable and many cities have taken some practical actions to recycle them. If polystyrene or foam can be recycled properly, it will contribute to the reduction of the white pollution.
Recycling methods which are taken by the environment protection organizations and the ordinary people will bring lots of benefits to the environment protection. People use plastic products every day since it provides us with convenience.

 


Polystyrene products can be used to wrap the package, decorate the cars and pack the electronic appliances. Styrofoam can be used to make disposable coffee cups and food containers. In the most of the occasions, people throw away the used packages and containers, therefore, a lot of EPS waste are produced every day.
All of the practical actions are aimed at improving the residential recycling rate. Many cities have announced plans to expand recycling services and ban the certain plastic-foam containers. Some of these cities even passed legislation to protect the environment. People can put different categories of trash in the bins and aside space in the communities and beside the large apartment buildings.
people don’t have to dump the plastic waste in landfills and they are advised to rinse their plastics before recycling them. They have struggled for decades to figure out what they can and cannot recycle. The reason why the recycling rates have been low is that glass bottles have given way to plastic ones, and newspaper sales have fallen, so recyclables weigh a lot less than they used to. Recycling rates are calculated by weight.
Instead, people can collect the waste polystyrene products and throw them into the specific recycling bins. Many cities have machines that can process these waste into renewable useful products. The machines usually include compactors, densifiers and melting machines. Foam densifiers can break down and condense items such as foam packaging and cups into smaller units shaped like bricks. Once the polystyrene is condensed into bricks it will be shipped off to end markets and processed into renewable plastic products.

 


Nowadays, many recycling companies have been making contributions to the efficient polystyrene recycling. INTCO is one of these professional recycling companies which focuses on producing recycling machines, providing competitive pricing and hoping to provide a PS recycling solution in the global market.
