Efficient EPS Compactor and the Compatibility with Warners’ Stellian Recycling Project

Warners’ Stellian, a renowned furniture store in Minnesota, has extended its commitment beyond merely selling furniture to include recycling efforts. The company embarked on its recycling journey a decade ago. Robert Warner, President of Warners’ Stellian, stated, “Initially, we started recycling cardboard from furniture packaging. Gradually, we expanded to include various types of waste. We are committed to recycling all waste we generate, even the challenging EPS packaging.”

The Challenge of EPS Waste

The company’s management explained that they employ EPS compactors to compress discarded EPS due to the bulky nature of EPS furniture packaging. Their warehouse space is primarily needed for storing goods, leaving little room for these “white behemoths.” Consequently, recyclers frequently collect and process the waste EPS, leading to significant expenses, both in terms of multiple transportations and warehouse rental costs. Previously, Warners’ Stellian’s waste management department had to haul away a 40-yard waste roll-off container every four days. However, with the aid of an EPS compactor, recyclers now only need to collect EPS blocks once a month. Despite this improvement, their current EPS compactor achieves a compression ratio of merely 20:1, which is suboptimal. QINFENG’s EPS compactors can achieve a superior compression ratio of 50:1.

Increasing EPS Waste with E-commerce

With the rise of online shopping and home delivery services, the volume of EPS furniture packaging is expected to increase significantly. A compactor with a 20:1 compression ratio is insufficient to handle this growing demand. Therefore, establishing a robust EPS recycling system begins with acquiring an efficient EPS compactor. The QINFENG EPS Hot Melting Recycling Line(EPS Compactor) can process a substantial amount of materials, including EPS, EPP, EPX, XPS, PUR, and EVA, into small hot melt blocks, with a production capacity of 200-250 kg/h. It employs four-axis shredding blades, offering higher efficiency and reducing waste volume by 80%-90%, facilitating transportation and recycling.

Economic and Environmental Benefits

By forming a sustainable recycling chain, the industry can create a positive economic cycle. Whether the goal is simply to reduce the volume of foam waste to save landfill space or to repurpose the foam into new products, EPS compactors present a viable solution.

By integrating EPS compactors into waste management practices, the volume of foam can be significantly reduced, making it easier and more cost-effective to transport and store. Additionally, when the compressed foam meets recycling standards, it can be processed and reused, creating a closed-loop system that not only conserves resources but also generates economic value.
