EPS Styrofoam Recycling Compactors are machines that compress expanded polystyrene foam, commonly known as Styrofoam or EPS. It reduces the volume of this lightweight material by up to 98%, making it easier and more cost-effective to transport and dispose of.
The process involves shredding the foam into smaller pieces before feeding them into the compactor, where they are melted down and compressed into dense blocks.
The compacted blocks can then be sold to recycling companies for further processing or reused in manufacturing new products like picture frames, crown molding or even surfboards.
Using an EPS Styrofoam compactor not only helps reduce transportation costs but also minimizes the amount of waste sent to landfills, which is a significant environmental concern.
They are ideal for businesses that produce large amounts of EPS waste, such as shipping companies or electronics manufacturers.
EPS Styrofoam compactors work by compressing the expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam into a dense block, which greatly reduces its size and makes it easier to transport and recycle.
The process involves feeding the EPS foam through a hopper, where it is chewed up by rotating blades and then pressed down by hydraulic pressure.
The compression ratio of EPS Styrofoam compactors can be as high as 50:1, which means that the final compressed block occupies only 2% of its original volume.
This makes it possible to store and transport large quantities of EPS foam materials in a more efficient manner.
EPS compactors help to reduce your waste disposal costs since fewer trips are needed to haul away bulky materials.
Styrofoam is one of the most versatile materials that we use today. It can be found in packaging products, such as disposable cutlery or insulation panels.
However, while it may serve a variety of purposes, Styrofoam waste remains a significant problem for our environment. Its of a non-biodegradable nature and it takes up vast amounts of space in landfills.
EPS recycling compactors offer an efficient and effective solution to the growing problem of Styrofoam waste.
By using high-pressure compression technology, these EPS compactors reduce the Styrofoam/polystyrene volume by up to 98%.
This means that they take up significantly less space when transported or stored in landfills. Additionally, compacted Styrofoam can be sold to recycling companies as raw material which helps create a new Eco economy.
Compact.ie provides a range of EPS Recycling Styrofoam compactors that easily meet the needs of any SME all the way up to industrial customers.
The industries we generally serve are local Government, retailers, retail chains, Manufacturers who use polystyrene/styrofoam such as food, electronic hardware and so on.
Historically, the recycling process of polystyrene/styrofoam has been practically non-existent, because globally, such waste is disposed of by landfill dumping or incineration.
All of the above is changing fast with the advancement of EPS polystyrene/styrofoam recycling machines that enable EPS waste to be recycled over and over as other products.
The end product are compressed ingots, that are logistically easy to move, and can be sold to recyclers.
Compact.ie conveniently arranges the buyback of your EPS waste, which generates unforseen revenues for your company.
