Foam cups recycling can be well realized through GREENMAX recycling machines


In Taiwan, the miky tea is very popular in the daily life especially in cold winter due to its tasty and convenience. The container for the tea cup is almost made of EPS foams, but the recycling for which is not that simple. Thus, if we can realize foam cups recycling, does that make these disposable products less of an environmental problem?


Americans throw away an astonishing 25 billion foam cups every year. The foam languishes in landfills indefinitely, taking at least 500 years – and possibly much longer – to decompose. Recycling is clearly a far better option. In 2006, the Alliance of Foam Packaging Recyclers reported that 56 million pounds of EPS foams were recycled just that year. That's definitely good news – but unfortunately, even if your local recycling facility accepts #6 plastics, it may not accept EPS foams.

In theory, it may decrease the amount of foam waste that ends up in landfills, and possibly reduce demand for new foams. The truth is, it's not that simple. Collected polystyrene products like foam cups can't be turned back into new cups in what's known as 'closed loop recycling.


In any case, the technology to recycle foam cups does exist. Here’s a recommendation for you to recycle foam cups. GREENMAX can do you a favor with no hesitation. The foam recycling machines, no matter foam screw compactor by physical methods of foam thermal dendifier by heating and melting, can deal with almost every kind of foams, including foam cups. The advantages of GREENMAX foam screw compactor lie in its physical operation process with a ratio of 50:1 and it will not change the color of the origin material. The thermal densifier, in other words, takes advantages of its higher ratio of 90:1. both of this two kinds of recycling machines can act well in the whole recycling.

To pursue foam cups recycling, and to conduct the whole process by yourself, GREENMAX can do you a favor with no hesitation.
