    Expanded polystyrene is made using a very clean process; all you need to mould a poly box for example is a male and female mould tool, some very clever moulding machines, steam and high pressure. In its raw material form prior to expansion EPS has a spherical shape and is about the same size as a grain of sugar. Polysource has manufactured color EPS (expandable polystyrene) resin and specialty EPS co-polymers for over 25 years. Our worldwide customer base typically consists of EPS molders that produce shape-molded products for a variety of applications. An untiring commitment to quality and service has made us a leader in its industry.

      At present, the recycling of polystyrene (or EPS foam) basically follows the following process: Segregation – EPS foam products are separated from other wastes and then sorted. Compaction – The segregated EPS foam products are fed to a compactor in order to reduce its volume. Some compactor systems have a compaction ratio of up to Styrofoam Recycling. Using the most advanced technology and machinery, Hometown Recycling can recycle expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam, commonly known as Styrofoam. Recycling EPS is less expensive than landfill disposal. We accept pure, white on: Bench Mark Dr, Austin, , Texas.

      Expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) is a lightweight packaging material. Common items that are made from EPS include the many food containers, packaging peanuts, and packaging foam blocks. It can easily be identified by looking for the #6 recycling symbol. EPC's recycling plants for expanded polystyrene (EPS) are not only highly efficient, but also offer a profitable and environmentally friendly recycling for different PS (polystyrene) and EPS waste. The process was developed in collaboration with the renowned Fraunhofer Institute (IVV Freising) and CreaCycle GmbH.

[1]. Its manufacturing amount in one of the companies in Latvia reaches m3/ year. The manufacturing of the expanded polystyrene products is a multi-step process that depends on extremely high (> 40) mutually correlated number of parameters. A New Biodegradable Expanded Polystyrene By Axel Barrett Decem Integritemp (Plastilite) announced a patent-pending ReFoam, an expanded polystyrene (EPS) product that is oxo-biodegradable and recyclable.

Jon Ehly, President and CEO said. How To Recycle EPP. Expanded polypropylene (EPP) as a kind of security and environmental material is convenient to be recycled. Expanded polypropylene has excellent heat resistance. EPP can be used over one hundred degrees, meanwhile, it won’t let out harmful gases.

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is a commonly used polymer in the packaging industry. The great importance of EPS recovery is related to the material's short service life. Michigan Foam Products, Inc. Chicago Dr SW Wyoming, MI Tel:() Fax: () Polystyrene (PS) / ˌ p ɒ l i ˈ s t aɪ r iː n / is a synthetic aromatic hydrocarbon polymer made from the monomer known as styrene.

Polystyrene can be solid or foamed. General-purpose polystyrene is clear, hard, and rather brittle. It is an inexpensive resin per unit al formula: (C₈H₈)ₙ.

EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) or as many know by The Dow Chemical Company's trademarked name, STYROFOAM, is an extremely lightweight product that is made of expanded polystyrene ally discovered by Eduard Simon in in Germany by accident, EPS foam is more than 95% air and only about 5% plastic.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Recycling is an urgent work that brooks no delay, because EPS is so widely used material which is disposable but can’t decay easily in nature.

EPS can be seen everywhere. The commonly seen packages of domestic appliance, instrument, artware and fast food are all EPS. Expanded polystyrene should be placed in the waste bin. Polystyrene is also sometimes used for other food packaging like multi-pack yoghurts. Some local authorities accept it in recycling collections although it is unlikely to actually be recycled.

You can check with your council if they accept it. Expandable polystyrene is a bead that can be produced directly in a one-step process or produced indirectly via polystyrene beads in a two-step process.

In the two-step process, EPS beads are produced from polystyrene beads made in the suspension process, which are impregnated under heat and pressure with a light hydrocarbon such as pentane.
