History of PolyMax
The patented technology for the PolyMax polystyrene densification system was developed by Huntsman Environmental Research Center (HERC). After developing a system for removing polystyrene foam from fast-food waste it became evident that there was a need to densify polystyrene foam. Traditional
balers did not work well for polystyrene foam because of the "springiness" of the foam. In 1994, a team from HERC went to work on the problem and the result was the technology to densify polystyrene foam. This technology is patented and exclusively licensed to Matrix Manufacturing (US patent no. 5,505,886).
