Recycling SVM-150

The recycling of used Styrofoam packaging

We let the air out – 90% volume reduction
Reduce costs and spare the environment – with the SVM-150

In November 1993, on the initiative of the company Baumgarten, STYREF (Styrofoam Recycling of European Fish Boxes) was established by a group of European fish box producers. The object of STYREF is the return of used packaging to the cycle of raw materials. The SVM-150 is an important element in this system which can be hired or purchased from us. In principle, however, only used Styrofoam packaging is disposed of by STYREF members.
