Foam pollution solution: Qinfeng Foam EPS Compactor

Today, the pollution caused by Styrofoam is no longer limited to land. It has spread into the ocean, adversely affecting the aesthetics of the environment. and pose a serious threat to the marine ecosystem. A recent study led by Stanford University marine biologists reveals a serious problem. Whales swimming along the California coast ingest millions of pieces of various plastics every day. According to surveys, half of the foam plastic waste on Earth has accumulated in the last 20 years. Disturbingly, only 9% of plastic sold in the United States is recycled each year, resulting in as much as 13 million tons of Styrofoam waste ending up in the ocean. This is equivalent to dumping one garbage truck into the sea every minute.

The harm caused by dumping various plastic foam waste into the oceans goes beyond the whales highlighted in the study. Scientists have even found plastic foam fragments in krill and other microorganisms. Whales are at the top of the marine food chain and rely on other marine life as a source of food. The damage caused by this foam waste will in turn affect humans at the top of the food chain.

As technology advances, the non-biodegradability of Styrofoam waste is no longer an excuse to avoid recycling responsibilities. At present, regulations for plastic foam recycling have been enacted around the world, including Asia, Europe and many countries. These regulations tend to advise industry on their responsibility to recycle foam, making them an important driver in the industry’s search for foam solutions.

Solution

In the absence of specialized foam recycling equipment, foam recycling becomes extremely challenging. The huge size is a major obstacle in the recycling process. Here, we advocate for QINFENG’s Foam EPS Compactor as a sustainable solution to address foam plastic pollution.

QINFENG’s Foam EPS Compactor utilizes cold pressing/hot melting technology, serving as a versatile recycling device capable of processing various foams, including EPS, XPS, EPE, and EPP. Through the compression and restoration process of the foam compactor, discarded foam plastic waste can be efficiently reused. This eliminates the need to burn, bury or dump into the ocean. This reduces the potential for torture and contamination of marine life and ecosystems.
