A lucrative international market for crushed polystyrene packaging for Australian businesses has been made more accessible with the use of compaction equipment from Wastech Engineering .
The new Runi polystyrene recycling compaction equipment, which will be on show at The Safety In Action and Materials & Manual Handling exhibition in May, achieves compression ratios of 50:1.
300kg of polystyrene waste emerges from the machinery just one cubic metre in size - a boon to exporters.
The Runi equipment complements Wastech's Bramidian low profile plastic and cardboard balers.
Other standard Wastech products include bin lifters, bins and skips, waste chutes, transfer stations, liquid extraction and product destruction equipment.
For unusual applications, Wastech offers purpose-designed equipment for the compaction of general waste and recyclables. It also offers a waste audit consultancy service advising businesses on how they can reduce the cost of waste removal.
Excellent back-up is assured, with the 13-year-old company offering 24 hour service in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Visit Wastech at stand P36 during Safety In Action and Materials & Manual Handling, which runs from Tuesday May 16 to Thursday May 18 2006 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
