It is essential for GREENMAX to protect the environment

 

While people are using more and more polystyrene products, polystyrene waste is just like tidal water flowing into all aspects of life. In 2015, more than 3 billion tons of polystyrene products were produced in the world. A large number of polystyrene waste products occupy and pollute the living environment through landfills and incineration. Also, the polystyrene waste that ends up in the sea has become a huge threat.

 

 
In 2010, more than 4.8 million tons to 12.7 million tons of polystyrene plastic waste flowed into the ocean, equivalent to one truckload of waste dumped into the ocean every minute. A large number of polystyrene foam containers are discarded and eventually flow into the ocean after usage. Polystyrene foam containers are one of the major sources of marine pollution. Globally, 86% of polystyrene plastic waste is not completely recycled.

 


According to the data from the global beach cleaning, polystyrene containers and caps are the most common plastic packages on the beach. Reducing polystyrene pollution is very urgent.

 

If we want to reduce the waste, we must recycle the polystyrene foam waste with a recycling machine. GREENMAX machine from INTCO, who is a specialist in polystyrene recycling, has polystyrene compactor that can deal with the waste polystyrene. The machine can work at a high ratio of 50:1 which means if you put 50m³ polystyrene foam into the hopper, the machine will crush the foam into pieces and then compress the pieces into EPS blocks which are 50 times smaller than before.

 


Recycling is an important method of saving resources, protecting the environment and containing development. If interested, you are welcome to leave your comments.
