Need some advice on use of polyolefin plastic.  researching I see it is related to HDPE chemically, however this is a foam.   I have shredded it to small particle size which also removed quite a lot of the air.  However I need a end use for the product.   Client has a warehouse 1000 square meters, and piled aprox 1-2 meters tall full of scrap foam.   the original idea was to make pillows and upholstery filling, but the mass of plastic has grown as they delayed getting a Precious Plastic shredder as the wood chipper they used previously was not working well.   Ideas: Plastic alloy with PET and extrude beams for furniture. Attempt to extrude into beams by itself.   shred and use as substitute for asphalt bitumen.   shred and attempt to fuse into sheets for use as house insulation. (win win, save energy usage)   use as filler with urethane foam, then cut into boards for house insulation.   shred and use similar to blow in fiberglass insulation   re-process back into oil is not a option as the local environment regulators are luddite and will not consider this without years of useless talking.
