In Canada, Waste EPS Foam Has the Potential of Being Recycled into Useful Materials

Canadian residents don’t need to worry about how to deal with the packaging of their amazon purchase now, they just notice that St. Albert has given waste EPS foam the potential of being turned into useful materials by EPS foam recycling and compressing. St. Albert has begun this EPS foam recycling project for two years. Residents usually drive to the city-run recycling depot to dispose of the waste EPS foam materials. Then the government would pay for mobile recycling equipment—a special truck which is equipped with an EPS foam recycling machine—to recycle the mountains of waste EPS foam. The company that provides the mobile trucks has set several sites in Canada, and the St. Albert program is one of the pilots. And the company has planned to operate the EPS foam recycling trucks in Edmonton and Calgary, too.

Since the summer from 2019 to 2020, the St. Albert operation has squashed about 4,000 kilograms of EPS foam. It’s obvious that EPS foam recycling will make profits to Albert, which is full of backwoods hills—leading to poor development. So, EPS foam recycling is both profitable and potential. 

In reality, this is not a case-by-case, more and more recycling companies have noticed the market of EPS foam recycling and acted in it. All these showed that EPS foam recycling is imperative and approved by most Canadians. But formerly, even now many people worry about the cost of EPS foam recycling in transporting. Transporting EPS foam is just like transporting air because EPS foam contains more than 95% air. But EPS foam densifier changes that problem. EPS foam densifier adopts hot-melting technology to compress waste EPS foam so that the products take up seriously less space. Then the compressed EPS foam called bricks will be collected and sold to EPS foam processors. Usually, those bricks will be sold to Asia to be made into new plastic products again. 

According to The EPS Industry Alliance’s reports, Canadian EPS recycling reports for 2018 weighed approximately 14.8 million pounds, highlighting the highest volume of EPS recovered in Canada to date. In the next several years, the EPS foam recycling rate will only get higher. And the new products made by waste EPS foam appear in almost everyone’s home in Canada. At the same time, the demand for EPS Foam Densifier will also increase. Therefore, it is very important to seize the opportunity to recycle EPS foam. If thinking about a suitable cooperative business, it’s no doubt that INTCO Recycling is one of the first water. Researched in the EPS foam for more than 10 years, INTCO Recycling can provide GREENMAX EPS foam recycling densifiers and buyback bricks to process into new products. The GREENMAX EPS foam machines are sold all over the world especially in Canada.
