Should fish producers invest in foam recycling machine
Most fish boxes end up in landfills (45-50% in Europe and 55-60% in Spain) and incineration throughout the world, causing a great burden on the environment. Actually, EPS Foam fish boxes are 100% recyclable, and EPS foam recycling has become increasingly more popular over the years.
In 2019, more than 136 million pounds of EPS were recycled, which was 23 million more pounds than in 2018. The booming data is all attributed to the foam recycling machine since it paves the way to meet improved foam recycling standards. GREENMAX compactor offered by INTCO Recycling is one outstanding representative of the foam recycling machines. What could be gained from investing in a GREENMAX compactor is far more than imagination.
1. Saving the storage space
EPS is so light in quality and large in volume that fish producers need warehouses to store loose EPS foam waste. If a GREENMAX compactor is equipped, fish producers can compress the fish boxes in time, greatly reducing the space occupied.
2. Decreasing the transportation cost
Considering the fact that 95-98 percent of EPS is air, once fish boxes are compressed, the volume of them goes to 1/50 of the original, at the same time, the transportation cost decrease 49%.
3. Making extra profits
GREENMAX compactor can make the loose EPS waste into compacted blocks that could be sold to manufacturers or recyclers at a high price, this will bring an extra profit to fish producers (a 48-foot truckload of blocks worth about 7800 dollars).
GREENMAX EPS foam recycling machine adopts advancing technologies and the equipment could be customized to various sizes or capacities according to the demands of different fish producers.
