Advanced Hot Melting Technology is Conducive to the Allowed Use of Foam Container or Packaging

 “Decades of experience have shown us that breaking our plastic addiction is the only truly effective pollution reduction strategy.” Said Secretary of Natural Resources Matthew J. Strickler recently. The recent year's successive plastic ban seems to confirm his words, but is it really so? For recyclers who have benefited from the efficient recycling capability of a foam densifier, the development of advanced technology has brought a turning point for the use restriction of plastics.

Foam#6 is a kind of plastic because it cannot be degraded, it will pollute the natural environment with the waste logistics. Because of its negative effects, many governments in the United States have banned the use of food containers in foam, but it has increased the cost and operating pressure of restaurants. In fact, the foam recovery technology is not only stagnant but also gradually mature. As a representative of recycling technology, foam densifier has been used and recognized by many recyclers.


Established in 1945 in the United States, Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. is a world-renowned home furnishings manufacturer and retailer, headquartered in Arcadia. The furniture industry is often unable to get around the material foam, this reason makes them has been looking for efficient and green process methods. GREENMAX foam densifier meets all their requirements.

GREENMAX Recycling, as a well-known company in the recycling industry, has a common goal with many recyclers. It's just that GREENMAX focuses on technology while the companies that want to recycle foam have been seeking solutions. Thanks to the common desire to recycle foam, Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. chose to cooperate with GREENMAX and purchased a foam densifier, which uses its exquisite hot-melt equipment to compact the foam into 1 / 90 ingots, and then these hot-melt ingots will be bought back by GREENMAX to form a closed loop.


Science and technology will always be the primary productivity of all walks of life, and the recycling industry is no exception. Foam is still a cheap and easy-to-use material, and restaurants are now actively opposed to a complete ban on this material. With the use of advanced equipment such as foam densifier in foam recycling, there will be a balance between using foam and avoiding pollution.
