PE foam densifiers may play an important role in PE foam’s recycling

The polyethylene (PE) foams market is projected to reach USD 6.85 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2017 to 2021. This growth is mainly driven by the increasing demand for PE foams from the automotive, packaging, building & construction, and sports & recreational end-use applications. In addition, high demand for PE foams from the Asia-Pacific region and their eco-friendly nature have contributed to the growth of this market.

PE foams can help reduce the overall mass of products, thereby making them lightweight and minimizing transportation costs. Owing to its insulation property, PE foams are widely demanded as a protective packaging material for food trays, fruit trays, tableware, and cap liners.

The polyethylene foams market in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2021, in terms of value and volume. This growth is mainly attributed to high economic growth, followed by heavy investments across industries, such as automotive, building & construction, and manufacturing in the Asia-Pacific region.

One of the hot issue that people concern is the disposal of the used PE foams. Due to the growth of PE foam market, the waste of them are facing a high level. However, there are only a few companies know the recycling solution to the waste PE foams.

PE foam densifiers are the kind of recycling machine that can help people recycle PE foams for the first step. The machine can have different capacity due to the quantity of the PE foams. The first step that the machine can offer is volume reduction.

The PE foam densifier can melt the PE foam at a ratio of 90:1 which means you will get 1 cubic meters of PE ingots after melting the 90 cubic meters of loose PE foams.

As the PE foam market continues growing, the recycling market will also grow in the future several years. So the PE foam densifiers will be a good helper that may play an important role in the recycling of PE foams.
