Turn foam fish boxes into revenue for fish producers in the UK

EPS foam has long been the preferred packaging material for fish boxes due to its excellent insulation properties and lack of any sustenance for bacteria, which is a good companion to protect fish and shellfish. According to BPF EPS Group Chairman David Emes, more than 22 million EPS fish boxes are used every year in the UK and this has been rising consistently by about 10% per annum for the last few years, which means recycling of fish boxes should be paid more attention to. But now many fish producers don't know foam recycling equipment can recycle fish boxes, still regard fish boxes as a headache.



In fact, the foam fish boxes are usually so wet, smelly, or with different sizes that they are not popular with some foam recycling centers in the UK. And the result is they usually are transported to landfill sites as garbage. Meanwhile the fish boxes stacked there take up a lot of space, increasing the cost of storage, and fish producers may have to pay to dispose of them. Actually, as long as there is a EPS foam recycling equipment, they can deal with these fish boxes themselves and make a profit through it.



GREENMAX foam densifier offered by INTCO Recycling could easily handle these fish boxes and reduce the volume of them to 1/90 of the origin. It is because inside the machine there are knives that shred or crush the foam blocks into smaller pieces, and the foam pieces will be melted by the hot air. Finally, the air that accounts for 98% of the foam boxes would be squeezed out and the loose foam is shaped into foam ingots. 



Then the foam ingots produced by the GREENMAX foam densifier are business opportunities for fish producers in the UK. Each pound of ingots costs about $0.20, a 48-foot truckload of foam ingots cost about $8000. And you may ask where to sell these ingots. If you purchase GREENMAX EPS foam recycling equipment, INTCO Recycling guarantees to purchase back your ingots because INTCO has a whole recycling chain, which will make EPS foam ingots into pellets and then produce terminal products such as photo frames.
