GREENMAX Styrofoam densifier is used by the South African Styrofoam manufacturer for recycling scraps


Few people realize that polystyrene is a valuable resource.


In South Africa, Styrofoam is one of the most commonly used materials. Styrofoam's extremely low cost and excellent insulation make it the first choice for packaging materials. Even if it becomes Styrofoam packaging waste, it will be used to make stationery, hangers, photo frames, cornices, curtain rods and skirting boards after being processed by recyclers.


South Africa is amongst the best countries in the world when it comes to Styrofoam recycling. Even developed nations with sophisticated collection and sorting systems do not recycle as much Styrofoam as South Africa. In South Africa, not only recyclers, some Styrofoam manufacturers will own a Styrofoam compactor A-C200.


Styrofoam compactor A-C200 is developed by GREENMAX, A famous American machine brand. It is a recycling machine that is used to reduce the cost of recycling. The manufacturer can arrange a small amount of manpower to operate the machine. After the Styrofoam waste is put into the machine, the cutting knife in the machine first crusher it into the shape of dust, then extruding the air content through the screw, and finally producing the Styrofoam block in the shape of square bar.


For manufacturers, the Styrofoam block is not only a perfect treatment of Styrofoam waste generated in production, but also a product that creates profits. GREENMAX promises to buy back Styrofoam blocks for the production of photo frames. Of course, South Africa has a large Styrofoam terminal market, and manufacturers can also choose other buyers with better prices.


A Styrofoam densifier can solve more than just environmental issues. In South Africa, the recycling industry has created more than 48,000 jobs. We are working tirelessly to raise awareness of the value of recycled polystyrene.
