Illinois-based Brohn Tech LLC has developed a way to constrict polystyrene, commonly known as Styrofoam, down into a usable plastic.
Although polystyrene is recyclable, most materials recovery facilities do not accept it as part of their recycling program because of the cost to process it, noted Brohn Tech. The company explained that its Styro-Constrictor makes it cost effective to process this material.
