The way of waste polystyrene disposal and recycling

By: GREENMAX - Intco Recycling
AUBURN, Australia - May 26, 2021 - PRLog -- Polystyrene has excellent impact cushioning properties, strong toughness, thermal insulation properties, acid and alkali resistance, and lightweight, waterproof and other performance. Its appearance is clean, easy to color, distinguish, and molding, it is widely used in building insulation, shockproof, packaging, and construction industries.

However, polystyrene material difficult to degrade and causes "white pollution" after being used. Polystyrene recycling not only eliminates "white pollution" but also saves resources.

There are two main sources of polystyrene recycling:

1.Foam scraps produced by the polystyrene production plants
2.Various polystyrene packaging recycled from recycling centers
Recycling is not only a technical issue, the most important thing is to recognize that recycling and reusing are concerned with ensuring the sustainable development of the national economy and the coordinated development of the economy, resources, and environment.

The disposal of waste polystyrene: the waste polystyrene is crushed into pieces and some are processed into PS pellets, which are used as light aggregate and recycled material for house insulation material. The processing process is simple, only the pellets size and bulk weight of waste polystyrene pellets should be controlled well. The basic performance requirement of waste PS pellets used in building insulation materials is that the maximum packing density is 20 kg / m ~ (3), and the pellets size less than 5 mm should be more than 90%.

The recycled polystyrene basically retains the characteristics of the original PS pellets, namely lightweight, small thermal conductivity, low water absorption, and good particle size. It is easy to be wrapped by slurry, good construction performance, and low price. The advantages that PS pellets do not have.

For effective recycling of polystyrene waste, you only need a polystyrene compactor, whether you sell the material or keep it for your own use, the polystyrene compactor from GREENMAX is a good helper. It can reduce the foam volume from 50:1 to 90:1, thus helping you save many costs during the recycling process.

The contribution that GREENMAX made to polystyrene recycling promotes more people to participate in recycling, and the foam recycling industry has a bright future. Please visit for more information.
