The EPS Compactor Gives U.S. Fisheries an Opportunity to Develop EPS Recycling Business
High Utilization Rate and Low Recycling Rate of EPS
According to the latest US EPS recycling report of AFPR, post-use EPS recycling in 2018 is about 39.7 million pounds, compared with 25.9 million pounds in 2017. As for post-industrial recycling, 74.1 million pounds of EPS were recovered in 2018. The number has soared from 39.7 million in 2017.
There is no doubt that the EPS recovery rate is rising with the development of technology and the awakening of recycling consciousness, but there is a cruel fact behind the data: compared with the number of EPS produced and put into use, the recycling part is actually less than 1/4. There is still a long way to go for EPS recycling. Advanced machines like EPS compactor should be widely used.
Fisheries Closely Linked to EPS
When it comes to EPS, many people think of is logistics packaging or meal boxes firstly. In fact, there is an industry that uses EPS much but is often ignored by people who don't pay attention to EPS, that is fisheries. There is a long process from fishing to marketing, including packing and transportation. There is a risk that the fish will be out of date or damaged during transportation. The advantages of heat preservation and shock resistance of EPS make it an excellent choice for fish packaging.
The old saying said that You can't have your cake and eat it too. For fishery, there is no material that has the advantages of being cheap and easy to use at the same time as EPS. Many people think that EPS is not recyclable and think it an eco-unfriendly material. In fact, EPS is not only 100% recyclable, but now the cold-pressing technology of EPS compactor can completely solve the recycling problem.
Perfect Fish Boxes Recycling with Zero Pollution
In fact, many recyclers now use EPS densifier for recycling, but please believe that because of a key factor, it is not the best choice for recycling EPS fish boxes. Everyone knows that fish and water are inseparable, fish boxes will inevitably contain water, which will affect the efficiency of the EPS densifier. But EPS compactor will not have this problem.
During the operation of the EPS compactor, there is no EPS gasification and no exhaust emission; It can efficiently deal with the fish box containing water. In addition, the equipment has no heating process, energy-saving, and environmental protection; As the cold pressing of the material does not affect the physical parameters of the material, the EPS fish box can be compressed into EPS blocks in the ratio of 1 / 50
Successful Cases and Development Prospects
The ability of the EPS compactor to recycle EPS fish boxes does not need to wait for verification. Now there are many successful cases. Take the famous recycling company GREENMAX as an example. As one of the representatives of manufacturing recycling machinery, GREEENMAX has cooperated with many famous fishery companies, such as Marine Harvest、BluGlacier, and so on. In the use of the GREENMAX EPS compactor, these companies have given praise, among which the words of cost-saving are the most.
It can be predicted that in the future, the development of the EPS recycling business will be the trend of fish traders. It can not only solve the problem of EPS recycling perfectly, but also save costs (including warehousing and landfill), and create new profits for granulators by selling EPS blocks.
