This article needs more work. To help develop this article, click 'Edit this article' above.


INTCO is a Styrofoam Recycling Specialist, providing total solution to EPS recycling and polystyrene recycling.

INTCO manufactures and sells GREENMAX EPS Compactors/Densifiers and Recycling machines/systems, purchases back compressed EPS scraps, and reuses them to make frame products.

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.
  • Secondly, people can make the EPS material into other handicrafts but the amount of EPS material used is very little. So it is not reasonable to handle the large amount of EPS material in this way.
