To recycle polystyrene, professional machines ought to be used

 

Polystyrene is also known as EPS Foam or Styrofoam. It is a highly popular plastic packaging material which is widely applied in packaging of food items, electronic goods, furniture and so on due to its excellent insulating and protective qualities. In our daily life, some life necessities like disposable cups, trays, cutlery, cartons, cases etc., are all made from polystyrene. 

 


Unfortunately, it is just so many polystyrene applications that lead to so much cost of recycling which is financially and environmentally expensive due to the material’s special characteristics. What’s worse, polystyrene products can take thousands of years to break down in landfill. However, there still exist professional polystyrene recycling solutions to dispose the bulky materials.

 

 

The first step of polystyrene recycling is to reduce the volume, and then it will be more convenient to transport and recycle the polystyrene materials. Foam volume reduction machines like compactors and densifiers can be supplied by GREENMAX from INTCO recycling.

Such GREENMAX machines can work at a high ratio with the compactor working at 50:1, while the densifier working at 90:1, which can ensure people to turn the loose foam into high density blocks or ingots. As a result, these compressed or densified blocks or ingots can be easily stocked on the pallets or sold to be recycled to make other plastic products.

 

 

For those who have large quantities of loose polystyrene foams, a few tons of blocks or ingots a month can possibly cover their costs, to which GREENMAX will be a great assistant. Nowadays, polystyrene is now facing a good market in the world’s foam market. Under this circumstance, GREENMAX recycling is really a good polystyrene disposal method than landfill.
