Styrofoam compactor perfectly handles discarded foam boxes in the Norwegian fishery market
Norway's large fishery market is generally located near the sea. Live fish caught from the sea are packed in fish boxes made with foam. This method can ensure the freshness of fish products to the greatest extent, but this has also led to the abandoned foam boxes are piled up like a mountain in the fishery market.
Foam's expansive nature isolates temperature, it’s the best material for making fish boxes. But when it became rubbish, the expansive nature was no longer an advantage. The light but big abandoned foam boxes became a distress for fish traders until they cooperated with California's INTCO Recycling.
INTCO Recycling is a California recycling company that provides customers with a complete foam recycling project. After cooperating with the Norwegian fish market, INTCO sold a foam compactor A-C200 to fish traders. After throwing the discarded foam fish boxes into the foam compactor, the air in the foam is squeezed out through the built-in cutter and hydraulic plate of the machine, and finally a high-density foam block is produced.
The volume ratio of foam block to abandoned foam fish box can reach 50: 1. The recovered foam blocks are easy to stack, easy to transport, and more importantly, they can be sold. INTCO promises fish trades to buy back the foam blocks it produces. Fish traders can also choose to sell foam blocks to the end markets such as photo frames, skirting boards, and hangers manufacturer.
The discarded fish boxes in the Norwegian fishery market are transformed into profitable products by foam box recycling, which is what fish traders would like to see.
