What is EPE and Recycle EPE Waste


PE foam (Polyethylene foam) is the most common and largest production plastic, a kind of thermoplastic resin. Many kinds of polyethylene are known, with most having the chemical formula (C₂H₄)nH₂. They are low density, medium density and high density polyethylene. PE is odorless, tasteless, and generally harmless. EPE is white, light, flexible and able to bend. EPE foam is a new type of foaming material for strong cushioning, shock proofing capabilities.

EPE is an environmentally-safe foaming material that can be recycled. So people who have a large amount of waste EPE foam could collect them and handle them by Greenmax machines. Greenmax machines have several types of machines and could handle different PE foams easily.

Greenmax machines are one of brands of INTCO Recycling Company. INTCO have offered a series of machines that could handle and recycle waste EPE foam. INTCO have produced EPE foam recycling machines, which could smash waste EPE and compact waste foam into blocks or melt them down to blocks. Then the handled waste EPE foam could be made into other products.

Importantly, INTCO is one of the largest waste plastic foam buyers in the world. INTCO will buy back the compacted or melted waste EPE foam of Greenmax machines buyers, and we will pelletize the foam and make them into useful products. Then, Greenmax buyers could get benefits after selling waste foams to us.

As a result, Greenmax machines buyers could handle their lightweight and scattered waste plastic foam as much as possible without striking a blowing. The importance is that Greenmax machines could help machine buyers save store cost and transportation cost as big size plastic foam could be compacted and melted into tight blocks.


The most importantly is that recycling waste EPE foam could protect the environment. As is known, EPE foam have pollution on them environment when burning and will also release toxic substances in the sunlight. So Greenmax machines could help avoid environment pollution.
