I have been very impressed with the support and professionalism of both Tim and Thomas. They have both been very supportive throughout the trial of the Sterimelt machine at our hospital site in Newport, quickly coming up with solutions to any problems we have encountered. They have also been instrumental in developing and enhancing the Sterimelt process within a healthcare setting and bringing the project to a very successful conclusion.
Styropak is a leading manufacturer of polystyrene (styrofoam) and has been using a StyroMelt machine for several years to thermally compact polystyrene dust. "Previously Styropak bagged this waste an it was send to landfill. Unfortunately the bags were prone to burst and this caused extensive litter pollution and the landfill sites were considering refusing to accept the material".
"All I can tell you are the cost implications for ourselves. Our 3 Research buildings were spending over £10k a year on skips sending polystyrene (styrofoam) to land fill (which is now strictly ilegal). We now have a StyroMelt machine and process the polystyrene which will be collected free for recylcing. This is the only machine I have managed to find that will process the 'mixed bag' of polystyrene waste we have in our operations. I have tried other technologies without success whereas the StyroMelt is simple and effective".
Snowdens are long established fish merchants who generate waste polystyrene (styrofoam) fish boxes during their filleting and repackaging activities. Paul Male Snowden M.D. says "It reduced the 7 skips we were using per week to just 1 pallet load of fully recyclable briquettes, which we then sold!"
