As a professional polyethylene foam recycling company, GREENMAX provides a series of solutions to effectively recycle polyethylene waste. At present, the global recovery rate of polyethylene foam is generally very low. There are also very few companies that recycle polyethylene foam. Traditional recycling methods, such as landfill and incineration, have caused environmental pollution to a certain extent. In order to solve this problem, it is necessary to introduce professional polyethylene recycling equipment.
The recycling process of polyethylene foam:
Because polyethylene foam is light in weight and large in volume, it requires huge storage space, is inconvenient to transport, and is difficult to recycle. In order to save recycling costs, GREENMAX has developed and produced ZEUS series foam compactor and MARS series polyethylene foam densifier to achieve effective recycling of polyethylene.
Polyethylene foam recycling solutions:
1. GREENMAX foam compactor (ZEUS series)
ZEUS series foam compressors can crush polyethylene foam as much as possible through bearings and blades. At the same time, the machine will compact the discarded EPE under high pressure. A layer of hot melt film is formed on the surface of the compressed block, which is convenient for transportation and can effectively prevent polyethylene waste from loosening again.
2. GREENMAX foam densifier (MARS series)
MARS series polyethylene foam densifier can crush polyethylene waste into pieces. After crushing, hot melting, extrusion and molding, the waste polyethylene foam becomes dense ingot, which can save storage space and transportation cost.
The compressed and hot-melted polyethylene waste can usually be sold as a raw material for the production of new foam products. The resources are reused and the sustainable development of resources is truly realized.
