The effective ways of waste EPS recycling

Recycled EPS is widely used. We need to increase the EPS recycling rate, so that recyclable resources can be used reasonably and effectively.
CHINO, Calif. - Aug. 27, 2020 - PRLog -- Expandable polystyrene (EPS) has developed rapidly in the world market, and is widely used in various shock-proof packaging, construction, decoration, tableware, etc. However, most of the EPS packaging materials are disposable consumables, which are not easily degraded after being discarded, causing great pollution to the environment. Therefore, the development of EPS recycling, rebirth, and regeneration has become the most urgent issue in the current EPS packaging industry.

In recent years, the recycling and utilization of EPS waste in various countries has received the attention of relevant departments.

2.Used as a fuel for incineration. Although this method can generate heat, it has a large investment.

3.EPS compression and sold. After hot melt regeneration granulation, the EPS is regenerated into PS particles. This is currently the most economical and effective way to deal with EPS waste. With a professional EPS compactor, the compressed foam waste is more than twice the price of the loose material. You can choose to sell it directly or develop the pelletizing business.

4.EPS crushed and reused. As an additive material after crushing to make lightweight insulation building materials, such as EPS lightweight concrete, cement polystyrene board, EPS foam hollow brick and EPS lightweight roof insulation board, etc. Its characteristic is to make full use of EPS excellent thermal insulation properties of foam plastic.
