The primary initiative is to end plastic pollution through bans on single-use plastic and increased awareness and practice of plastic recycling.

The plastic variety are also widely reused. Meantime, the average plastic pallet’s life ranges from 50 to 500 trips compared with 10 to 50 trips for a wooden pallet. In addition, plastic pallets can be recycled into new plastic products at the end of their service life.

Characteristics of compressed plastic pallets
The price of the raw materials for compressed plastic pallet is very cheap, which also reduce the investment. All the raw materials for compressed plastic pallet machine are plastic wastes, such as PVC, PP, PS, HIPS, PET, APET, PETG, HDPE scrap, PET cold wash piece, PE scrap, PP scrap, PVC wire skin, woven, glass fiber yarn waste, circuit board, battery jar ABS particle, waste plastic pallet, and so on.

The quality of final compressed plastic pallets is as good as the traditional ones. Meanwhile, the final pallets are one-piece design, which are saving space 60% than the traditional ones. For example, the height of 50 pieces of nestable plastic pallets is about 2.37 meters. However, the height of 20 pieces of traditional injection moulding plastic pallets is 2.7 meters.
