Styrofoam Recycling

Styrofoam recycling is now become one of the main business of INTCO Recycling .

In the United States and Canada, the word styrofoam is often incorrectly used as a generic term for expanded (not extruded) polystyrene foam, such as disposable coffee cups, coolers, or cushioning material in packaging, which are typically white and are made of expanded polystyrene beads.

But actually, Styrofoam is a trademarked brand of closed-cell extruded polystyrene foam currently made for thermal insulation and craft applications. It is owned and manufactured by The Dow Chemical Company . (from WiKipedia)

Extruded polystyrene is also called XPS for short.

In order to deal with extruded polystyrene foam like StyrofoamTM & Foamular?, INTCO Recycling ‘s engineer did a lot of testing and finally made our Apolo Series compress extruded polystyrene, which could help save storage and shipment cost.

INTCO could also purchase compressed Styrofoam block as long as polystyrene foam logs. The Styrofoam recycling will be done in our factory in Shanghai, Zibo and Luan. Frame products is the final products of the Styrofoam waste.
