GREENMAX foam compactor addresses cost problem to promote foam recycling

 

Foam is made in large pieces, can be cut into thin slices or almost any special size or shape, dimensional flexibility, recyclability, lower price, and was once called "white raw material".

 

Foam is a recyclable material, but it has only been used for half a century, causing foam pollution all over the world. Foam is now called "white pollution". This is confusing, questioning whether foam is really recyclable.

 


GREENMAX can be 100% sure that the foam is recyclable. The root cause of foam pollution is not in the foam material itself, is people are unwilling to pay for the cost of foam recycling.

 

Foam has an air content of 98%, and foam waste is generally lightweight and big. If you choose to recycle, it will cause high costs in terms of transportation and storage. Therefore, in order to refuse to pay this cost, people have long chose to dispose of the foam waste by incineration or burial.

 

In other words, if you want to promote foam recycling, you must first solve the problem of recycling costs. GREENMAX has developed a foam compactor A-C200, a professional foam recycling machine, which can significantly reduce the cost of foam recycling. The Foam compactor has a built-in cold-pressing screw. The air contained in the foam waste is squeezed out by screw compression, and finally a recycled foam block is formed.

 


Foam block is a recycled plastic that can be used as a raw material for manufacturing products in the end market, such as photo frames, baseboards, hangers, wood-like furniture, etc.

 


GREENMAX hopes to promote the development of foam recycling with technology, and hopes that the compact compactor can be recycled around the world.
