Sphere Renewables Cooperated with GREENMAX for Styrofoam Recycling

Sphere Renewables, one of the largest key component manufacturers, suppliers and solution providers in the North American renewable energy industry, has recently cooperated with GREENMAX to help promote its Styrofoam recycling business.

Sphere Renewables has manufacturing centers in the United States, Europe and Asia. The company is able to provide OEM manufacturing and new product development service for customers around the world. Its main industries covered include wind energy, solar energy, construction and logistics.

In the manufacturing process of Sphere's manufacturing base in Denver, a large amount of Styrofoam scraps and used foam packaging materials are produced every day. After a rough estimate, there are more than 10,000 pounds of Styrofoam waste generated a month. Due to the large size and light weight features, Styrofoam waste occupies a large amount of storage space in Sphere’s warehouse, which seriously affects its normal factory operation.

Another fact is that there are few local recyclers accept Styrofoam waste, they have to throw them into the trash cans. With Sphere’s Styrofoam waste volume, several 40-foot waste bins can be filled every week, which means that more than $3,000 waste disposal fees will be paid every month. The problems of occupying storage space and high processing fees resulting in high operating costs for the company.

In recent years, Sphere has been committed to environmental protection and the improvement of the surrounding community environment. At the same time, in order to solve its own high operating costs and Styrofoam disposal problems, Sphere is looking for professional Styrofoam recycling equipment, and finally decided to establish cooperation with GREENMAX after a deep market research. GREENMAX is the world's leading Styrofoam recycling company that supplies total solutions to Styrofoam recycling. The company offers professional GREENMAX Styrofoam densifiers, which has helped hundreds of American companies solve Styrofoam recycling problems.

After more than three months of communication with the GREENMAX team, Sphere finally chose the M-C100 Styrofoam densifier to process its own Styrofoam waste. After more than half a year of operation, more than 50,000 lbs of Styrofoam waste has been recycled, 90,000 lbs of carbon dioxide has been reduced, and more than 1,000 trees have been saved. At the same time, this project helped Sphere save more than $20,000 in landfill fees and increase the efficiency of plant operations by 20%.

Under the promotion of policy, environmental protection and energy conservation have become the trend of enterprise development. In fact, Styrofoam is a renewable resource, the recycled Styrofoam can be used for reproduction. We hope that more companies can strengthen environmental protection and realize Styrofoam recycling.
