The introduction of Styrofoam compactor may alleviate California's declining recycling rate


California’s recovery rate is at a leading level on all continents in the United States, but even so, California’s current 50% recovery rate is not rising but falling, making it difficult to achieve the target of 75% recovery rate by 2020. To cope with this situation, California is trying to adopt the recycling method of Styrofoam compactor.



Since the California Senate issued a target of 75% recovery rate, recycling organizations and other industries have initiated research methods to improve the existing recycling system, and absorbing the power of advanced recycling technology to further enhance our recycling and reuse of Styrofoam waste is the first to achieve the goal step.

California has many recycling companies that specialize in developing waste plastic recycling technology, such as GREENMAX. GREENMAX aims at the expansion characteristics of Styrofoam waste and aims to improve the recovery efficiency through compression technology. At present, three machine models have been developed, which are divided into A series, M series and P series according to different technologies used. Among them, A series machines, also known as Styrofoam compactor, A-C200 have been introduced with logistics companies, retailers, home appliance manufacturers and other industries in many countries and regions.

A series Styrofoam compactor machine parts are produced by high-end manufacturers such as Siemens, Phoenix, Schneider and other high-end manufacturers to ensure the great safety, reliability and durability of Styrofoam compactor. The machine is equipped with rotary cutter, cold pressure screw and hydraulic plate. It uses a combination of crushing and hydraulic pressure to ensure a high compression ratio of 50:1.



The Styrofoam block produced by Styrofoam compactor is extruded out of the air originally contained, which is heavy and high in density. In the storage and transportation of the recycling process, it can not only save recycling costs, but also improve recycling efficiency. The most important thing is that the Styrofoam block is the raw material needed by terminal manufacturers such as photo frames, hangers, park benches, etc. The Styrofoam block with a large end market is easily sold, and even GREENMAX is buying it.



Recycling is not as influential as simply consuming less or reusing it, but it is a key step to conserve resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which is why California will develop a high recycling rate of 75%. Hope that GREENMAX’s new recycling technology Can help California achieve this goal as soon as possible.
