GREENMAX polystyrene densifier makes foam waste valuable for recycling

 

In most roadside recycling programs, polystyrene is part of a long list of recycled contaminants (unrecyclable waste material, items cannot be placed in recycling bins). However, as long as it is separated from most of the waste, polystyrene is valuable for recycling.

High quality equipment is not cheap, but from the perspective of long-term return on investment, the benefits of polystyrene recycling are far greater than the expenditure.

Densification of polystyrene involves using a polystyrene densifier to melt the loose foam material into dense ingots, it results in a mass reduction of 90:1, which greatly reduces the storage and transportation cost.

Polystyrene densifier can yield the following benefits:

Lower transportation costs to market;

Enhanced value and broader market for densified foam ingots;

Elimination of baling polystyrene, freeing up baling equipment for higher volume materials.
