    hmmm, that is weird because most everyone i knew loved the smell of gasoline. I never huffed anything at all if that is the impression i am giving, just casual smelling.

    I am not trying to mess you thread up or anything, just reading the word gasoline brought back memories.

    There is a decent way I know of that could deal with Styrofoam (It was actually designed to deal with Tyres), unfortunately I can't mention anything about it here as it's one of my Fathers current inventions and well once it's got into Patents Pending then obviously it can be mentioned. What I can say though is it doesn't require any additional chemistry, since in the most cases of the chemicals suggested to be used they have to go through processing to make those chemicals and the processing procedure usually has it's own waste to add to potentially environmentally damaging materials.

    Hopefully you will be able to tell us about it soon.
    The Sony method I linked to above apparently has no waste (aside from the obvious energy production to run the machine) and 99% of the solvent is reclaimed in the process.

    Hi one_raven, I have set out on the same quest as yourself but some 9 years later. I am intrigued to know if there was ever a resolution to this quest. I hope to hear from you.

    Regards Woodynz

    Hi Stryder

    Are you able now to reveal any details of this "decent way" to deal with Styrofoam?

    Kind regards Woodynz
