Polyethylene densifier can help conduct the recycling of polyethylene

To recycle polyethylene is a vital process for our environment. Considering over 60 million metric tons of it is produced annually for use in packaging, including plastic bags—the very ordinary products consumers encounter everyday. Higher densities of this kind of plastic are also frequently used in many industrial applications.


Polyethylene recycling is a trend. There is a survey conducted by Moore Recycling Associates, it found that recycling of non-bottle rigid plastics has increased significantly in the past couple years with 31% of post-consumer collection being high-density polyethylene recycling. Imagine the benefits of mass polyethylene recycling at a post-industrial level.

Recycling polyethylene is vital because in most cases, it isn’t biodegradable and can accumulate in landfills for decades when the waste plastic is discarded. It is said that polyethylene recycling is actually easy to carry out.

Because of the composition of polyethylene, the waste plastic can be melted to a liquid form and reshaped or extruded as it solidifies, making it reusable. Polyethylene recycling can therefore lead to the creation of new and durable products that are also cost effective and environmentally friendly. 

Polyethylene densifier is a machine that can help melt the waste polystyrene into liquid form and shaped into different kind of ingots. The machine can supplied by GREENMAX from INTCO recycling. The GREENMAX densifier can work at a ratio of 90:1. The densified ingots will be 90 times smaller than the loose polyethylene.

The densifier can not only help conduct the recycling of the item, but also can help reduce the volume and disposal costs of the waste polyethylene. Such professional solution has already been supplied to many customers around the world. Due to the densified ingots can be sold to be recycled and reused, the recycling of the item is also an economic thing to do.
