EPS Compactor Contributes to the EPS Recycling Industry
The improvement of EPS recycling rate is said to be a result of the application of EPS compactors. In Canada, it is reported that the recycling rate of EPS packaging increased from 12% in 2009 to about 31% last year. Meanwhile, the recycling rate of food packaging increased to 32%.
According to the CPIA’s vice president, the main contributor to this improvement was the EPS compactor. By reducing the size of EPS waste, the shipping and collecting cost of EPS was greatly reduced and this opened up new opportunities for the EPS industry. In short, EPS recycling rate increased with the help of EPS compactors.
