Recycling EPS waste on the Earth Day can help make our world greener

At the end of last month, on April 22nd, the Earth Day is celebrated all over the world. Aiming to make our living environment greener, the Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.

Earth Day Network, the organization that leads Earth Day worldwide, has chosen as the theme for 2018 to End Plastic Pollution, including creating support for a global effort to eliminate primarily single-use plastics along with global regulation for the disposal of plastics.

EPS, as one of the most widely used plastic types, is necessary to be recycled on the Earth Day.

As we know, for a long time, we have heard a lot of misunderstanding about EPS, such as EPS is not recyclable, it’s deleterious, it can degrade naturally and so on. Although we continuously promote the fact that EPS is definitely, recyclable! One aspect that we have never spent time explaining is how the EPS recycling process actually works. Therefore, this is not convincing to the public.

For waste EPS recycling. Firstly, a good recycling program can bring much convenience. Polystyrene foam is being recycled every day, and access to recycling programs is increasing. EPS foam collected from curbside and drop-off recycling programs is being transformed into useful, everyday items like rulers, pens, and picture frames.

Considering it is usually difficult to transport the large and bulky foam waste to the recycling center, a foam volume reduction machine is always necessary for the recyclers or some manufacturers who produce EPS products.

GREENMAX EPS densifier is specially designed for polystyrene waste recycling. With the foam melting function, the loose foam material can be densified into tight blocks up to ratio 90:1, and the melted foam can save much costs during transportation.

Not only EPS, the Earth Day require us to produce less waste and save more resources. We are building a greener world!
