Research and development of foam density also protects people's health
According to a shocking academic study sponsored by the World Conservation Fund, everyone on the planet consumes nearly 2,000 plastics per week, the size of a credit card. These tiny fragments enter our bodies from tap water, food and even the air without our knowledge.
Since the paper was published last year, there has been a renewed discussion of white pollution around the world, and recycling is known to be the most effective way to date. In fact, there are many types of plastics. At present, people are solving the problems of plastic recycling one by one. Recently, foam #6 recycling has made new progress.
Foam recycling has always been difficult to solve the problem of recycling costs. Based in California, INTCO Recycling has developed a foam densifier M-C200 equipped with a hot-melt screw based on the expansion characteristics of the foam. Foam contains 98% air content. The hot-melt screw equipped with M-C200 melts the foam by high temperature to compress the air content. The volume ratio of the foam ingot and foam waste produced can reach 90: 1.
The density of Foam ingot is much higher than that of foam waste. It has a hard texture and is a kind of hard plastic, which is currently the recycled plastic with the largest market potential. Foam ingot can be used as a raw material for photo frames, baseboards, park benches, and hangers. INTCO has also been purchasing ingot. Because of this, the foam densifier M-C200 is very popular in the recycler industry. Recyclers are buying not only a machine but also a way of making money.
At present, the most important thing to solve the white pollution problem is to prevent foam waste from entering the environment, and at the same time prevent it from entering our bodies. Foam recycling is the best way.
