Styrofoam is a very light material, since its 98% composition is air. Althought it constitutes a recyclable material, it produces significant environmental impacts, if not properly managed. In particular, it poses a high threat for the marine life, because of the high risk of swallowing by the aquatic organisms.
In order to reduce the volume and manage it efficiently, our company has a briquetting machine. By compressing the styrofoam waste in the machine, the formation of briquettes is being conducted. Due to the significant volume minimization, styrofoam can then be transfered to companies specializing in EPS recycling.
