EPS pressing machines are perfect for recycling EPS packaging materials


Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is a rigid and tough, closed-cell foam. EPS is used for many applications. For example, polystyrene packaging industry.



Packaging industry has been remained major driving force for the growth of polystyrene and polystyrene industry. Packaging industry in emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil is growing at a rapid pace. Increasing demand for consumer goods in these countries has been resulted into rise in demand for EPS packaging materials.

Moreover, strong growth of food & beverages and pharmaceutical industry in emerging economies is expected to further trigger the demand for packaging industry. However, environmental concern, fluctuating prices of raw materials and substitute materials are expected to present significant challenge to industry participants. This is expected to affect the growth of this industry in the years to come. EPS recycling is expected to open new growth window for the industry participants.
EPS recycling rate is quite low in the world. Only 30% polystyrene packaging materials are recycled at present. And many of them were sent to landfill which costs a lot of land space and does harm to the environment.



INTCO recycling is one of the biggest company which is committed to the recycling and reusing of EPS packaging materials in China. It can provide total solutions to the polystyrene foam materials. GREENMAX is its recycling machines’ brand. It has compactors and densifiers to dispose polystyrene foam materials. And it purchases back the recycled polystyrene materials to granulate raw materials for XPS boards and frame products.


The recycling and reusing of EPS are the most environmental and economic means for disposing such recyclable materials. Packaging industry participants can consider entering into this recycling industry, not only for protecting environment, but also for own benefits.
