In 2012, INTCO recycled 50,000 tons of waste EPS, which helped save 4,000,000 trees and reduce 100,000 tons of carbon emission. INTCO became one of the biggest waste EPS end-user and recyclers in the world.
The handling process of EPS is not easy:
- Firstly, it is not good to handle the waste EPS through landfill. As the waste EPS can release waste chemicals, the soil and groundwater can become polluted.
