Vigorously promote the recycling economy thorough treatment of “white pollution”

Since the former State Economic and Trade Commission on February 1, 1999 from the implementation of “the elimination of backward production capacity, technology and products directory” Decree No. 6, April 23, 2001 issued a “stop immediately the production of disposable foam plastic tableware notice “document, the same year on May 29 re-issued” on the food and beverage companies to stop using disposable foam plastic tableware notice “document, December 28, 2001, four ministries have jointly issued” on the strengthening phase out disposable foam plastic cutlery law enforcement supervision work notice “file.

The former State Economic and Trade Commission, “a make three text” disposable foam plastic tableware in early introduction stage of history, let tableware dominate the market as soon as possible to rectify the work shows the determination and efforts are unprecedented. Issued Decree No. 6 six years, provincial and local governments have also issued a command, but practices vary, market situation how? “White pollution” is not really under control? Have become experts, academics, news media attention, local governments, enterprises, foreign-funded enterprises are talking about. Some provinces and NPC deputies and CPPCC members have also related to the relevant central ministries and local government authorities to make proposals or comments and suggestions. China disposable tableware exactly how fast development? What kind of policy? China’s packaging industry and plastic box Governance “white pollution”, protecting the environment, the development of recycling economy needed to be solved and can not be avoided major problems.
June 1, 2005 to August 17, 2005, by the Beijing Economic Cycle Research Institute, UNIDO Investment and Technology Promotion Office China Green Industry Expert Committee, former State Department Office of the Deputy Director of the National Packaging improvements Li Peisheng headed by the Head of the National Development and Reform Commission, “China Economic Herald” agency, Beijing Institute of Modern recycling economy, Beijing Parker Yin (PKI) Packaging Co., Ltd. participate in the “disposable tableware market faster Survey Group” braved the heat and “Matsa” Typhoon, visited the Beijing, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Guangdong and other economically developed cities in five provinces 11 more than 30 local government authorities (Waste Management Division, EPA), local industry associations, packaging office, all kinds of fast tableware manufacturer, foam plastic tableware recycling business, restaurants, restaurants, streets and communities, recycling companies, through seminars and in-depth real, live listening, ask to see such different ways, with the relevant responsible comrades exchange opinion, made a lot of first-hand material.
First, the domestic status of disposable tableware fast:
1, our foam packaging industry status and trends.
A variety of plastic foam. Since its inception in 1845, foam rubber, with the scientific and technological development, PVC foam, polystyrene foam and other products have been made, and to achieve industrial production in developed countries has been developing rapidly. After China since 1958, also has developed and produced PVC foam, polystyrene foam, polyurethane foam, polyethylene foam, etc.. At present, China has basically developed into a foam industrial system. The existing national Hundreds of factories engaged in this production. Now except Tibet without foam production, other provinces have foam production enterprises, the 2003 production of about 105 tons. Compared to 761,000 tons in 2002, up 14.3 percent; foams for packaging production accounted for 32 million tons.
Foam has a light weight, poor water absorption, cushioning shock resistance, good thermal insulation characteristics, it is widely used in food and fast food packaging, household appliances, instrumentation, specialty packaging products. At present, domestic and foreign varieties of foam used as packaging material is polystyrene foam based.
According to China’s actual situation, the mid-1980s, China’s packaging industry and product packaging improvement plan made it clear that the development of foam polystyrene foam material should be mainly to polyurethane foam, polyethylene foam, supplemented with Fast food and household appliances, equipment, instruments, crafts, glassware, ceramic products as a packaging object and extruded polystyrene sheet to accelerate fast-food companies in the food application. According to the characteristics of the foam body light, foam and products easy to be transported separately, you should find the most economical and reasonable transport radius, so the foam packaging should be rational distribution of industrial enterprises, should not be too concentrated, but not blindly launched, should be built in the use and Foam packaging products industry better cities and departments.
2, China disposable tableware fast development process and current situation – despite being banned foam plastic tableware, lunch boxes struggling.
Because of this new international foam technology, the rapid development of new products, the rapid development of the domestic economy and the accelerating pace of life, according to insiders common understanding and planning the mid-1980s, China’s Cangzhou City, Hebei Province, a second plastic factory approved enterprises began from Japan, Taiwan and other countries and regions, the introduction of polystyrene foam plastic tableware sheet production lines and molding machines; later another group of foreign investment into the Chinese market, Shanghai and a number of mechanical digestion and absorption of foreign advanced manufacturing enterprises technology and equipment, the successful development of the polystyrene foam sheet production line and fast tableware molding machine, so that China’s polystyrene fast tableware industry has been developing rapidly, with the amount of annual increments.
EPS Styrofoam tableware cutlery divided; PSP grade composite plastic cutlery and plastic cutlery (polystyrene foam sheet and color BOPS film composite) three. Currently, the first two in the country has been developed rapidly. According to insiders say, 1999, China polystyrene sheet production line will have more plastics products than 170 pieces, dinnerware sales reached 16 billion. Among them, the Guangdong region of about 40-50 billion, accounting for 1/4. Government issued the ban in 2005 after six years, in addition to some business failures, after converting, there are polystyrene sheet production line of 200 or more; tableware molding machine has fast development of township enterprises, with more than before, the current tableware annual sales reached 28 billion or more (including lunch boxes, bowl, cup, plate); national annual amount of 12 billion snack (including a variety of lunch boxes for the 3.4 billion annual sales, accounting for one-time snack production Sales usage 28.33%; PS foam lunch boxes of 8.6 billion, accounting for one-time usage snack production and sales of 71.67%), compared with six orders early release total annual sales increase, but also in the country , polystyrene lunch boxes on the market, the average share of 70 percent, the Shanghai market, almost 95% of polystyrene plastic lunch box.
Because by the government to ban foam plastic tableware news, before 2000, all parties have invested in building replacement foam plastic tableware manufacturers, namely “green lunch box.”
molded pulp tableware. In the “green” tableware, pulp tableware companies from around 100 in 1999 to 600 or so rapidly. After six years of fierce market competition, due to inability to compete with polystyrene foam plastic tableware, more than 500 have been closed down conversions. By 2002, the country leaving more than 60 molded pulp tableware manufacturer, production of only 500 million, only to reach full production capacity of 1/9, and most of the products are for export, sales of only 350 million, representing a production and sales of snack consumption of 2.92%, sales difficulties.
paperboard coating type utensils. For six years, due to the production enterprises in the fierce competition in the market can not compete with polystyrene foam plastic tableware from 1999 dozens of companies, has all kinds of cardboard lunch box production equipment 200 sets, the production capacity of nearly 1.5 billion, dropped to 20 enterprises, the production capacity fell to 150 million. To the 2002 production of only 15 million, sales reached only 10 million, accounting for one-time usage snack production and sales of 0.00084% (eight four parts per million), sales difficulties.
plants (straw) fiber type utensils. Producers generally smaller, mostly in 1999-2002 to develop. 6 years, also because of the fierce market competition, can not compete with polystyrene foam plastic tableware, and now there are a number of manufacturing businesses shuttered. Production in 2002 only 1,000 ten thousand, only five million sales, production and sales accounted for one-time snack usage 0.0004% (parts per million four two). The first half of this year there are Beijing Run Technology Development has two pools Xinyuan Company Limited and a number of plants (straw) fiber type tableware manufacturer to continue closure sales difficulties.
biodegradable disposable plastic tableware bright / biological EPS type EPS-and light-filled starch / biodegradable polypropylene type and other varieties. Wherein the light / biodegradable polypropylene tableware degradation is relatively good, the country also has a certain production capacity. To 2002, the country has more than 80 manufacturers, the production of 3.5 billion, annual sales reached 3 billion, accounting for one-time usage snack production and sales of 254% (kind of lunch box is the recent news media coverage toxic lunch boxes), is a full production capacity of 6,000,000,000 1 / 2.6 years due to cost can not compete with polystyrene foam plastic tableware, in order to reduce costs, some producers regardless of people’s health, also the production of this kind of lunch boxes by adding ingredients CaCo3, talc, etc., that the formation is now labeled “lunch boxes” logo “toxic lunch boxes.” Such lunch boxes are fake “green lunch box” both can not be degraded, and can not be recycled. Some local governments and relevant departments in the organization of the team engaged in the “fake” work.
At present, various types of “green lunch box” in 2002 the total sales of about 3.4 billion, just continue to circulate in the market currently polystyrene plastic foam lunch boxes sold 2/5, more than a Guangdong Province annual consumption is also less.
1) Before 2000, Guangdong Province with foam plastic package plastic tableware manufacturer 15, 2000 production of foam plastic tableware about 4 billion. According to the Guangdong Packaging Technology Association on January 12 this year, the Guangdong Provincial People’s Government of the report, said: “In 2004, because of the government ban foam plastic tableware, so all kinds of name of ‘tableware’ debut came out alternatives. Since 2001, the time has passed for four years. early this year, according to statistics, in 2004 the province’s existing foam plastic tableware manufacturer 34, 2004 production of foam plastic tableware 4 billion, accounting for total output 1/5, the industrial output value of about 3.2 billion, of which exports 1.2 billion, accounting for total output of 1/3 of the main export areas are Hong Kong, Macau, the United States, Canada, Japan, France, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, South Africa and so on. 2004 with the ‘ban’ prior to the implementation of 2000 compared to the production of foam plastic tableware increased by 21 enterprises, foam plastic tableware production was flat with 2000. Guangdong Province foam plastic tableware manufacturer, although most are still to carry out production and business activities, but in theory that is in the ‘underground’ state; dealership foam plastic tableware business activities in the ‘underground’ state, while the market a lot of circulation using plastic foam tableware – Jinerbuzhi .
On the contrary, all kinds of alternative products – ‘green’ tableware manufacturer’s case, very optimistic. Before 2000, the Government will ban the production, sale and use of foam plastic tableware news, have invested in all aspects of the construction of various ‘green’ tableware (such as molded pulp lunch box, biodegradable food containers, plant fiber lunch boxes, cardboard composite lunch boxes, etc.) enterprises. To 2000, Guangdong Province, has a variety of ‘tableware’ manufacturing enterprises 16; when the production of various types of ‘green’ tableware approximately 280 million. Four years later, in 2004, producing all kinds of ‘green’ tableware enterprises to maintain the production of only five (failures, conversions are 11); various ‘green’ tableware production of about 200 million. Among them, 50% of products are exported. “Because of a variety of ‘green’ cutlery companies in terms of price, performance, compared with the foam plastic tableware are at a disadvantage, it is in operation and are in the market circulation also struggling state.
Guangdong Packaging Technology Association, after a long investigation, on January 12 this year, the Guangdong Provincial People’s Government wrote a “disposable tableware industry in Guangdong Province Survey Report.” Guangdong Province, the report stated the basic situation of the current tableware industry, comparative advantages and disadvantages of various dishes and suggestions: one, in order to ensure that the masses of food hygiene, should promote the use of foam plastic tableware; 2, according to Shanghai mode tableware industry sector the implementation of “source control recycling, gradually ban, encourage alternative” and other measures to promote the development of circular economy. In early August 2005, Zhang secretary, Governor Huang Huahua have done instructions. May 2005, Guangdong Packaging Technology Association survey found that in turn problems and suggestions written into “the use of circular economy white pollution” investigation report and “on the implementation of recycling measures governance” white pollution “proposal” submitted to the Guangdong Province economic and trade work Ningfeng competent deputy governor. Tour deputy governor May 26, 2005 instructions: “Please Provincial Economic Commission supplier EPA Research Department, clear plastic box the use of the concept of circular economy measures to govern the implementation of recycling makes sense, and instructed the provincial Economic and Trade Commission, the provincial Environmental Protection Bureau, the Provincial Department of Construction is responsible for implementing .
2) Zhejiang Provincial People’s Government to adopt a ban plastic foam lunch boxes production, use, sale policy. But in obligations, Wenzhou and other developed economy, migrant workers and more cities, disposable foam plastic tableware still larger market share, a variety of fast food dishes common circulation in the market. Zhejiang Province in 2004 added 18 PS foam fast food boxes production lines. Among them, an increase of 4 Shaoxing, Wenzhou City, an increase of 2, an increase of 4 Jinhua, Hangzhou, China Jiang and other three companies increased by 6, an increase of 1 Tat Linping, obligations increased by a city Article.
3) Jiangsu Provincial People’s Government on September 22, 2000, issued a Government Decree No. 171, and in the same year go into effect on October 1. No. 171 issued, provincial relevant departments (including the EPA, the Trade and Industry Bureau, Packaging Association, office, city, urban management, quality inspection departments) have actively implemented, standards organizations to promote disposable lunch boxes, tissue replacement products exhibition, confiscated production, distribution enterprises and foam plastic tableware products. But failed to plastic case work. Shanghai-Nanjing line five economically developed cities (Nanjing, Zhenjiang, Changzhou, Wuxi, Suzhou) Vietnam banned the production PS foam lunch boxes, the more the market circulation of the majority of foam tableware. Relevant authorities comrades said with emotion “forbidden Bering became white ban.” Japanese consumption of disposable snack from Nanjing No. 171 issued prior to 100,000, and now has reached more than 20 million or more, with about 100 million years or so. Production of plastic foam lunch boxes the size of the business nearly 20.
Currently, this number remains. Pulp molding production enterprises snack original three have collapsed. The biggest one is directly under the China National Packaging Corporation in package package rather new technology development companies, investment more than 10 million due to competition, but plastic foam lunch boxes, business losses, now defunct converting sell furniture. Jiangsu Oil Corporation spent heavily degradable resin plant imported from Germany degradable resin material production line making lunch boxes, garbage bags, but also because of competition in a market economy can not be based on, and turn to exports; 2003 moved to Shenzhen. Nanjing Agricultural University, a professor of his own money to engage in starch degradation lunch boxes, but also because of the high cost, you can not compete with foam plastic tableware, and cause failure. Changzhou Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for protecting natural ecosystems person: Changzhou before the release of the government ban, the annual consumption of about 8,000,000 snack, and now in 2004 has grown to annual consumption of more than 15 million snack, and the main market of foam plastic tableware lunch boxes. 1999-2000, Changzhou Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau is to conscientiously implement the former State Economic and Trade Commission and the provincial government Decree No. 171 6 “cut Bering”, and set up a leading group; conducted through newspapers radio propaganda; organized alternatives (new construction, commissioning Wujin City days tableware Co. lunch boxes cardboard production line coating, Wujin New green packaging products factory plant fiber lunch box production line) display; Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau, the Municipal Economic Commission, City of Industry combination with weekly ORGANIZATION 1 – 2 inspections. Check the result is not good. 2002 Changzhou City, more than 60 fast food restaurants collective refusal to use “green” lunch boxes; Hung Ling Plastic Bag Co. 12 lunch boxes pulp molding production lines, due to their inability competition defunct. Aforementioned cardboard coated with vegetable fiber snack lunch box manufacturers have also been closed down. Li can not manage, “enforcement costs and effects disproportionate”; take forcible confiscation of goods approach is not effective, law enforcement difficult. Thus, after 2003, Changzhou City, this work is no longer manage. Other cities in Jiangsu Province are basically the same.
Jiangsu Province, currently produces foam plastic tableware production line than “cut Bering” before the implementation of increased 8, located in Nantong, 2,, Rugao 2, Liyang 2, Kunshan 2.
4) Shanghai Municipal People’s Government has adopted a policy of “source control, recycling, and gradually ban, encourage alternative” Sixteen policies, implementation clamshell packaging of the “Threepenny” project on the “white pollution” major source “disposable PS hair foam lunch boxes “for management. Shanghai now except for some areas, such as train stations, ferry terminals, airports, scenic Bund, People’s Square area, Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street, Huaihai Road Commercial Street, Sheshan, Dianshanhu tourist scenic areas and other public places over 20 prohibited disposable tableware, other places are allowed to use PS foam lunch boxes, and achieved tangible results.
“visual pollution” significantly reduced. Currently on the road, trash, landfill, the waste of disposable plastic lunch boxes have significantly reduced the number. Investigation team deep into the Suzhou River, Li Shan, Yichuan Sanxiang district, did not find a discarded foam plastic tableware. Nanhui District of Shanghai, Xujiahui District, Huangpu District, Shanghai, Kunshan, near Stone Town and other places hotels, restaurants and fast application all PS foam plastic dinnerware tableware. So also can be said that the resulting “visual pollution” problem has been basically solved.
follow circular economy “3R” principle, the Shanghai disposable foam plastic tableware on management approach, reflecting the standardization, recycled, recycling model. From June 14, 2000, the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government promulgated the “Interim Measures on Management of Shanghai disposable plastic lunch boxes” (hereinafter referred to as the “Rules”), that is 84 orders, and since the same year on October 1 from 4 years since the implementation of more time, the cumulative recovery of disposable plastic lunch boxes nearly 1.2 billion, equivalent to 7,373 tons, 3,687 tons recycled plastic particles for the production of hard plastic products raw materials. Currently, the demand for packaging design the country’s economic construction to save a lot of oil. Over time, the Shanghai Daily use of foam plastic tableware reach 1.2 million, more than 800,000 Japanese recycling, recovery above 70%, the annual recycling capacity reached 300 million.
“approach” since the implementation of the public’s environmental awareness has been a general increase in major supermarkets, food has been jointly promoted with little or no pollution to the environment products. Currently, for environmentally friendly “green products” has become a community consensus. Group engaged in picking up recycling food containers grassroots, with a number of fast food restaurants fixed contact, the highest individual day can be recycled disposable plastic packaging foam tableware 1500-2000 only fast, cost recovery day can earn 20-30 yuan. This laid-off workers and migrant workers, it is also an important source of cost of living. The team has formed the recycling of waste plastic foam lunch boxes this “people’s war,” the main force. Producers pay through the implementation of measures and local prohibition, radically reduce the “white pollution” sources of generation and usage; work to promote recycling and in-depth, but also the “white pollution” source to get the final landfill effective control. Waste Management Office of Shanghai Municipal Government, Comrade emotionally about that: the State Council leaders inspected the Gezhouba criticism PS foam plastic tableware on white visual pollution caused to the environment is right, the real cause white visual pollution is due to people’s environmental awareness not strong, caused by human factors, is due to government mismanagement. Therefore, improving the people’s environmental awareness and the quality is extremely important.
Shanghai currently has six production of PS foam plastic lunch box production enterprises, the average daily production 1.6 million. In addition to providing local Shanghai, there is a considerable amount of exports. The city’s original six companies producing pulp molding lunch boxes, as competition in the market economy, but PS plastic foam lunch boxes, defunct, lost more than 18 million yuan. Several other (cardboard coating, plant fiber) lunch box companies have closed down, there are a production of polypropylene Degradation boxes exported. Waste Management Office of Shanghai Municipal Government and the Kunshan Paul Green regeneration process Ltd, the next step intends to recycle plastic bags recycling. At present, the production line has been put into use.
Beijing disposable foam tableware companies have long noted that the impact on the environment. Therefore, in 1996, began recycling works actively explore and get the Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau leadership support and assistance. Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau, Trade and Industry Bureau in June 1997 jointly issued “on the waste recycling disposable plastic lunch boxes must notice” and asked the recovery must reach 30% in 1998, reached 50% in 1999, 2000 60% requirement. 1997 in Beijing, six disposable foam tableware manufacturer, in accordance with internationally accepted principles of environmental pollution – “causer of pollution responsible” investment of 30 million yuan, the voluntary co-organized the “Beijing Fusheng environmental technology company,” developed a recycling program, set up in Beijing eight Recycle Bin, professional recovery teams reached 1,000 people. September 1, 1997 officially running. 1998 amounted to 1,834 tons recovered, the recovery rate 59%; 1999 reached 1,915 tons recycling, recovery rate of 63%; 2000 reached 1,965 tons recovered, the recovery packaging company of 66%. As affected by the policy, after 2001, the amount of recovery began to decline, with only 896 tons, points are reduced to three. 1999 The six foam tableware production enterprises invested $ 730,000 in Datong County established a regeneration treatment plants, namely, “Beijing-green environmental regeneration process, Ltd.”, the waste plastic foam lunch boxes turning waste into treasure, producing polystyrene recycled plastic particles become hard plastic products, renewable resources, access to more than 4200 tons recycled materials, a decrease of 13 million cubic meters of landfill volume, and achieved good social benefits. SEPA Beijing has confirmed the practice, and issued UNCED [1997] No. 590 “agreed on Beijing and Tianjin as white pollution pilot cities of approval” file. Also sent to Beijing, Shanghai, learn, and develop into the current 16-character principle and the “Threepenny works.” Unfortunately, Beijing is not able to stick to it, forming wall flower wall red situation. Especially the Beijing Municipal People’s Government on March 31, 1999 issued Decree No. 25 – “Beijing restrict the sale, use of plastic bags and disposable plastic tableware Management Measures” after the foam plastic dinnerware recycling at standstill , reduction state. Datong regeneration treatment plant the equipment sold, 50 acres of land plant an overgrown; into the recovery system 30 million fund to fight the “hydroplaning.” Beijing’s largest foam plastic tableware manufacturer, Beijing Tong Hao Plastics Co., Ltd. 6-lane closure of five, a change production Degradation boxes, a sharp economic downturn. Beijing court disposable snack usage is 700 million or so, the average monthly usage at 60 million, the market share of foam plastic tableware is still above 50%.
3, According to expert estimates, the “forbidden Bering” released after six years, since the object part of the production was banned polystyrene foam plastic tableware business failures conversions; “forbidden Bering” in support of a variety of alternative products – “tableware” fierce competition in the market, you can not compete with polystyrene foam plastic tableware and have been closed down, converting; recycling of waste plastic foam lunch boxes some of the processing plant, recycling system was forced to stop running, causing the country loss of at least 20 billion yuan. Huaiyin City, Jiangsu Province, Jiangsu Province, to a private owner Packaging Technology Association, a weeping responsible comrades say: According to the government’s ban Bering, he invested 300,000 yuan, and built a plant fiber lunch box manufacturers. Competition in the market but lost to plastic foam lunch boxes and forced to businesses closed. “I believe that the Government’s policy, followed by government policy. Now it seems like the more tightly, the greater luck. 300,000 yuan all for naught. 300,000 yuan is saved up my many years of hard-earned money ah!” Hangzhou City Jiefang Hotel a general manager speaks: Disable plastic foam lunch boxes, switch to “green lunch boxes,” more than a year to increase the cost of manipulation hotel more than 50 million. A restaurant, earn more than 50 million a year, which so easily ah! More than 60 fast-food enterprises, Changzhou collective letter to the government refused to use “green lunch box” grassroots complaints more; some local government officials in charge of this work, because of the “forbidden Bering” puzzled, enforcement difficulties, but also to take a more wide open a closed one’s attitude, unchecked. Production enterprises in the plastic foam lunch boxes, about 50% are Taiwanese, Korean businessmen, Japanese, Hong Kong and other foreign investments. Bering ban after the introduction of a number of foreign-funded enterprises responsible person deeply puzzled, “beautiful, practical, inexpensive foam plastic tableware advanced countries in the world, capable of enduring use, why China will not work, worthy of reflection.” “China’s industrial policy Why they please? see from the principle of circular economy, polystyrene foam lunch boxes is faster in today’s disposable tableware is the most high-tech, low-cost, high-quality a preferred product that can be recycling, recycling products, and six orders, but that is a backward foam plastic tableware products be banned? ‘”Mr. Deng Xiaoping speaking, foreign investment, Taiwan’s policy for 50 years, why they please …… “resulting in a very bad political influence. Of the Tenth National People’s Congress of Guangdong Li Guoqiang on behalf of 28 October 2003 sent a letter to the National Development and Reform Commission Ma Kai (see Annex 3): Development and Reform Commission, “it is necessary to reflect on six orders of foam plastic dinnerware for the implementation of ‘three ban’ policy; Reflection Its formulation is hasty implementation of some joint solutions to problems if there are countermeasures, as well as with China’s national conditions of this policy, the relationship between customs, especially in the current situation, but also how to deal with “,” we are more biased by strengthening Through education and ways to address the recycling of waste environment (pollution) problems. ”
March 5, 2005 on behalf of the NPC Guangdong Li Guoqiang (Representative No. 01839) and other eight deputies of the content written proposal – “apply” recycling economy “concept, improve relevant laws and regulations and policies, solve the” white pollution “problem of proposal “submitted to the third meeting of the Tenth National People’s Congress (see Annex 4); Guangdong Provincial People’s Congress deputies Yuan Zheng and other nine provinces also Proposition 1162 The second meeting of the provincial People’s Congress submitted” on the strengthen the “white pollution” prevention recommendations, “the proposal (see Annex 5), stressing that” must use the ‘circular economy’ concept, from the production, consumption, recycling, reuse several links throughout the control, rather than prohibition. “Recently, State Environmental Protection Administration, the Ministry of Commerce, the plastic trays Ministry of Construction to build a ring Prop. 4907 letter [2005] No. 85 to make a written reply (see Annex 2): “We are very much in favor of your proposal, the application of ‘circular economy’ concept, as well as improve the legal and policies and other measures to control and reduce the hazards of plastic waste, …… support for plastic bags and foam plastic tableware and other solid waste recycling. ”
At present, Guangdong Province, Zhejiang Province, Shenzhen City are prepared from the “forbidden” PS foam production and use of disposable lunch boxes, take the recycling economy, recycling of the road. Shanghai, including the four provinces of disposable foam lunch boxes to go the road of recycling totaled more than 6.4 billion, accounting for 74% of sales of the existing use of the country to go the road of recycling trend has been apparent trend. These cities do not exist “toxic lunch box” problem, basically do not need to fake….
