Polystyrene foam densifier can effectively manage your foam package at your place

 

Polystyrene foam, more commonly known as Styrofoam, is universally used as packing material for protecting fragile items in transit. The world produces nearly ten million metric tons of polystyrene foam to meet the demands of the shipping, food, and other industries.

Polystyrene foam is made up of 98% air and 2% polystyrene with its high volume and low weight ratio, even a small quantity can rapidly fill bins and containers. Recycling of plastic, paper and glass is common in the United States, but polystyrene recycling is not. Japan, Korea, and some European countries recycle as much as 60% of their waste polystyrene foam but it still poses a problem.

 

 

One reason is that many believe polystyrene foam is not worth recycling. Its difficult to manage the nature and lightweight material. Many countries have set recycling sites in many towns. And most of the polystyrene foam will be sent to landfill by waste management companies if there aren’t any people take actions to recycle the polystyrene foam.

Companies like seafood companies and home appliance retailers are most possibly have large quantities of polystyrene foam packaging. Many of them may not dispose the foam by themselves. And they may contract to other third-party companies to help recycle the materials.

 

 

Actually, if you have enough space for storing the foam materials. You can totally recycle the polystyrene foam by yourself. Only a polystyrene foam densifier can help you enter into the recycling business. The densifier can be supplied by GREENMAX from INTCO recycling.
