Reduces EPS Pollution and High Waste Processing Costs: QINFENG EPS Compactor


Nearly 8 million tonnes of plastic pollution from around the world washes up on Canadian coastlines every year. But in 2021, Canadians witnessed something unusual. Masks and personal protective equipment appeared on their shores for the first time. According to the 2020 Dirty Dozen report from Canada’s Great Coastline Cleanup. Some 15,000 volunteers removed more than 41,000 kilograms of trash from Canada’s coastlines, including a list of discarded pandemic-related items. Now, researchers in Australia and Canada estimate that as much as 11 million tonnes of plastic waste may be accumulating on the seafloor.

Due to plastic pollution, some coastal areas are not very popular tourist destinations. So every summer, people go out to clean up trash along the coast. To maintain the beautiful natural environment. Relevant data is displayed. During a cleanup of the Rasquiti Island coastline, volunteers discovered that much of the plastic pollution was common discarded EPS.In just half a day, 70 volunteers cleared two tons of garbage, with EPS accounting for a significant proportion.

Due to its lightweight and low cost, EPS has become a popular material for marine construction facilities and aquaculture transport. The accumulated waste EPS on the coastlines mainly comes from marine EPS buoys, EPS seafood packaging, EPS fish boxes, etc. If volunteers’ hours were paid at minimum wage, the cost of these cleanup efforts would exceed $2,000 per kilometer. Considering the coastlines of many provinces stretch over thousands of kilometers, these cleanup efforts represent significant financial and social costs for the coastal communities.


Therefore, to avoid these additional financial burdens, we can recycle these EPS products after they have fulfilled their mission. EPS Compactor not only saves a considerable amount of waste processing fees but also profits from the EPS recycling system. We recommend the QINFENG CF-CP 380 EPS Compactor, which can reduce the size of EPS foam plastic materials, with a compression ratio of 1:30-1:50. The compressed end product is EPS foam plastic blocks, with a density of up to 300 kg/m3. EPS Compactor is equipped with four sets of 3 kW crusher motors and a 15 kW screw motor, with an output of 150-200 kg per hour.
