What is Polystyrene, Expanded polystyrene, Airpop, and EPS?

All of the aforementioned names refer to the same thing, while airpop and EPS are currently the most popular variations, most frequently in the form EPS6. It is common practice to wrap furniture, groceries, seafood, electronics, and food items in EPS6, a well-known plastic packaging material.

It’s critical that you properly dispose of polystyrene garbage if your company produces a lot of it. A polystyrene compactor allows you to achieve this exact goal.

Polystyrene Reuse and Recycling

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is very durable like all plastic items and unfortunately occupies a lot of area in landfills. Chemicals that are harmful to soil and water can leak into landfills from polystyrene waste.

EPS recycling produces a material than can be used to make new products, and thus avoid the negative environmental effects of landfill disposal.

A Polystyrene Compactor from Mil-tek shreds and then melts the polystyrene waste, and then creates stackable blocks/briquettes.

These blocks are storage-friendly, and are very easy to sell and make into new plastic products – long live circular economy!
