GREENMAX foam densifier could prevent Styrofoam waste from going to landfill


Do you really know what to do for your used Styrofoam products? The fact is that Styrofoam will end up in landfill if not done correctly.


"Styrofoam is made of plastic, they blow air into the plastic and make it," said Amanda Hillery, director of the solid waste management district. "It's highly recyclable, but you have to be able to package it. It just collapsed and there was no way to put it in the bag, which is why we can't accept it. "



Under normal circumstances, Styrofoam doesn’t decompose itself in the environment, it is estimated that Styrofoam will take at least 500 years to degrade naturally. Sometimes Styrofoam crumbles into small pieces that may enter the environment and be mistaken for food by land and marine animals. If these fragments are ingested, they can cause blockage of the digestive system, asphyxiation and death. If burned, the burning Styrofoam releases dangerous chemicals and smoke. Neither is a good way for Styrofoam disposal.



To reduce environment pollution in an more effective way, you need to turn the bulky foam into small one first. Styrofoam is difficult to recycle because it is mostly air. In order to make it cost effective to recycle, the air would have to be removed.


GREENMAX foam densifier is a Styrofoam waste recycling machine which specializes in foam volume reduction. The melting technology can turn the loose foam into dense ingots at a ratio of 90:1. More importantly, you can save much transportation cost and sell the melted ingots at a good price.



At present, Styrofoam is a major contributor to landfill, occupying more space than other garbage. It is estimated that Styrofoam products account for about 30% of the world's landfill volume. The application of GREENMAX Styrofoam densifier will change such situation and prevent more Styrofoam waste from going to landfill
