-- Nowadays, many EPS foam products are used in a large number of household appliances and other packaging or frozen food packaging. Fruit packaging is now mostly in foam boxes, and a few instant noodle bowls are made of expandable polystyrene bead foam. These foam products are large in size and used in extremely large quantities. Therefore, the recycling and utilization of EPS foam products have received special attention in Australia, and how to recycle discarded foam boxes is also very urgent.
EPS is the abbreviation of "Expanded Polystyrene"
, commonly known as "foam" or "styrofoam", which is a white foamed plastic. This kind of material is heated with steam to form a block of polystyrene. After expansion, the volume becomes 50 times the original volume, which contains 95-98% of air and 2-5% of pure polystyrene. The main characteristics of this EPS foam packaging product are insulation, lightweight, and waterproof, which greatly increases the practicability of people in life.
Because of the large volume of EPS, the difficulty in the recycling process is that it occupies a large space. It can be granulated after volume reduction and used as a variety of filling materials after crushing, cracking oil, or recycling styrene and other products. The following focuses on the volume reduction method of professional equipment to recycle EPS foam waste.
GREENMAX EPS Compactor is an EPS recycling machine specialized in compressing waste EPS lunch box, XPS insulation board, EPP, etc. into blocks by rotating screw pressure. Equipped with the EPS Compactor, the bulky EPS will be compressed to one-50th to its original size, greatly reducing storage space and transportation costs. Importantly, the compressed EPS blocks can be further processed into new products such as photo frames, which is beneficial to develop a circular economy worldwide.
