The only way to make money on recycling of EPS and EPP is to reuse it as EPS or EPP, where the value correspond to the price of new EPS or EPP beads. The recycled EPS and EPP material can be reused in shape moulding production in a ration of at least 10-20 percent without any perceptible optical or physical change of the product quality. For block moulding 20-50 percent can be added.

Due to the fact that the material is broken down to the individual bead size similar to the new beads, it is homogeneous with the new pre-expanded beads and consequently de-mixing problems in the silos causing uneven density distribution are minimized. Problems like blocking of core vents due to dust and lumps of material causing hot wire cutting problems in terms of inaccurate sheets with bad surface are also minimized. 

Thanks to the two step/double chamber system and the large screen surface and granulation chamber the recycling plants produce from waste production, cut-offs from block production or even from used EPS and EPP/EPE mouldings, a high quality recycled material, which contains a minimum of dust. 

Which EPS/EPP recycling plant to choose? 

We developed the completely integrated recycling concept for reusing EPS material in 1978 and have in the past supplied more than 350 complete recycling plants world-wide, where they have solved the recycling problems and brought substantial savings to our customers. Our experience in this field enables us to solve the problem of reusing the waste material with optimal result for both EPS, EPP, EPE, Arcel, and Neopor for shape- and block-moulders.

At KBM we offer 5 different systems for your recycling needs (click on a product name to continue to the respective product page);
Micro In-A-Box,  Mini In-A-Box,  MINI,  MAXI,  and  JUMBO.
