Styrofoam recovery solution by INTCO is more suitable for retailers
As styrofoam waste continues to pollute the planet's water bodies, various regions are promoting diverse Styrofoam recycling initiatives. Increasing the recovery rate of styrofoam can effectively ease the entry of styrofoam into the environment, but increasing the recovery rate of styrofoam has been a difficult problem in the styrofoam recycling industry.
For some organizations trying to resolve this issue include:
Plastic Bank is a company that incentivizes local residents to collect Styrofoam waste through a monetary or material reward. Their collection centers are generally set up in developing countries, which is also a disadvantage of the reward recycling model. Only in areas where supplies and resources are relatively poor can this model be developed to the greatest extent.
INTCO Recycling is a company that develops styrofoam recycling machine to improve styrofoam recycling rate. A styrofoam compactor A-C200 can efficiently recycle styrofoam packaging waste from a large retailer's warehouse.
A large retailer discards styrofoam packaging waste in tons per year. If it enters the environment, the damage is not only huge but also long-lasting. With the Styrofoam compactor A-C200, the machine's built-in cold-pressing screw can compress the styrofoam packaging waste into a recycled styrofoam block at a ratio of 50: 1.
After the machine is compressed into a styrofoam block, it not only greatly reduces the storage and transportation cost of the retailer, but also can be used as another profit method for the large retailer. Styrofoam block is a renewable resource. For some end markets, it is the raw material of its products. For example, INTCO also bought styrofoam block for making exquisite photo frames.
In fact, the diversity of styrofoam recycling methods is not necessarily a bad thing. Just like INTCO is suitable for retailer, and plastic banks are suitable for developing regions, it can better find suitable recycling methods.
