Polystyrene powder is also valuable material that could be recycled

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is an innovative building material that lends to the design and structural integrity of many building projects. Since the 1950s, EPS has been recognized as a mainstream insulation material, however over the past decade, new applications have rapidly developed.

Now, EPS is a powerful design element and an ideal choice for green building design, offering tangible environmental advantages that can maximize energy efficiency, providing improved indoor environmental quality and enhancing durability.

 


EPS is now widely used to construct buildings in the amusement parks or theme parks. There are many construction companies that use the EPS as construction materials. Because these materials are able to be cut into the shapes they wanted. And these companies may accept projects and then purchase different EPS blocks to cut into different shapes.

During the cutting process, there will be a lot of EPS powder left. This waste EPS powder cannot be reused by these companies, so most of them may not know how to dispose these waste, and they usually send the EPS powder to landfill or pay money to others to help them dispose.

 


Nowadays, the polystyrene recycling rate is quite low in the world, and even not many people know how to recycle these materials. And the polystyrene powder recycling is a part of the polystyrene recycling too. EPS powder is possible to be recycled by GREENMAX from INTCO recycling.

GREENMAX from INTCO has a kind of professional machine that can help recycle the polystyrene powder through melting the powder into ingots which are easier for transportation and storage.
The machine is GREENMAX ’s Mars series densifier. The densifier can work at a ratio of 90:1 if the loose polystyrene materials have big volume. This machine is designed to reduce the volume of loose Styrofoam materials.

 


The recycled materials that disposed by the machine are raw materials for granulation to make other products like XPS insulation boards or frame products. INTCO not only supply solutions to the polystyrene recycling, but also want to purchase back all the recycled polystyrene materials to granulate. So if you have interest to join the polystyrene powder recycling, you can consider choosing a GREENMAX densifier to be your tool.
