Since the national plastic ban was issued in January 2020, 20 provinces across the country have successively issued response measures. Zhejiang Province is an important production and export base of plastic products in the country. The annual plastic consumption exceeds 10 million tons, which is veritable A major province in the plastics industry. How Zhejiang's plastic ban will be implemented has always attracted national attention.
[Zhejiang strengthens plastic pollution control]
Recently, the nine departments in Zhejiang jointly issued the "Implementation Measures on Further Strengthening the Treatment of Plastic Pollution", which put forward the overall goal, task list, timetable, and responsible persons of the province's "plastic control" work.
The "Implementation Measures" put forward corresponding management requirements and policy measures for plastic pollution control in accordance with the idea of "banning one batch, replacing one batch with recycling, and standardizing one batch". It is divided into 6 parts and 18 articles. The core is "putting forward a general requirement, focusing on four types of plastic product pollution, and implementing five key tasks."
1. By the end of 2020, the province's plastic waste will achieve "zero landfill".
2. By the end of 2022, the consumption of disposable plastic products will decrease significantly, and alternative products will be widely promoted.
3. By the end of 2023, all districted cities and 50% of counties (cities, districts) will complete the construction of "wastefree cities"; the management system for the production, circulation, consumption, recycling and disposal of plastic products will be basically established, and alternative products will be developed and applied The level is further improved.
4. By the end of 2025, a pluralistic cogovernance system integrating urban and rural areas will be basically formed, and plastic pollution will be effectively controlled.
Zhejiang Province Governance Target VS National Governance Target
|Non-degradable plastic bag|
Disposable plastic tableware
Disposable plastic products in hotels and hotels
Compared with the national plastic ban target, Zhejiang is expected to be completed 2 years ahead of schedule. This not only reflects the determination of the Zhejiang government, but Zhejiang enterprises have also made full preparations and are ready to lead the reform of the traditional plastics industry with new technologies and new materials.
Focus on four types of plastic product pollution
Focusingonnondegradable plastic bags, disposable plastic tableware, hotel and hotel disposable plastic products, and express plastic packaging, the use of related plastic products is prohibited and restricted step by step and by field.
1. Prohibit and restrict the production, sale and use of some plastic products
It is prohibited to produce and sell ultra-thin plastic shopping bags with a thickness of less than 0.025 mm, and polyethylene agricultural mulch film with a thickness of less than 0.01 mm. It is forbidden to use medical waste as raw materials to manufacture plastic products. The import of waste plastics is completely prohibited.
2. Promote and apply alternative products and models
Propose measures to promote the application of alternative products, cultivate and optimize new business forms and new models, increase green supply, and cultivate and expand alternative industries.
3. Regulate the recycling and disposal of plastic waste
Proposed measures to strengthen the recycling and removal of plastic waste, promote the use of resources and energy, and carry out special cleaning of plastic waste.
4. Improve the support and guarantee system
Measures such as establishing and improving laws and regulations and standards, improving support policies, strengthening scientific and technological support, and strict law enforcement supervision.
5. Strengthen organization and implementation
Proposed measures to strengthen organizational leadership, adhere to demonstration and guidance, and strengthen publicity and guidance.
It can be seen from the "Measures" that in the future, Zhejiang will cultivate and expand alternative industries, guide traditional plastic products companies to actively adjust their structure, accelerate transformation and upgrading, encourage degradable plastic manufacturers to expand their scale, and cultivate a number of degradable materials and product production backbone enterprises , To create a national leading degradable material and product industrial cluster with Zhejiang characteristics.
Countermeasures of Zhejiang Plastic Products Enterprises
Zhejiang is not only a large province of plastic products, but also a gathering place for the research and development of biodegradable materials. A large number of pioneers of biodegradable materials in Zhejiang have started the industrialization and application of biodegradable materials more than ten years ago.
As one of the pioneers in the application of biodegradable materials in Zhejiang Province, the team under Zhejiang has always made the mission of making biodegradable materials more widely used, and is determined to become the world's leading developer of biodegradable materials. It is aimed at reducing plastics and banning plastics. Instructed, Zhejiang Sowing has already deployed related products.
U1012 is one of the biodegradable raw materials in Zhejiang Sowing. It is a degradable thermoplastic blend modified resin specially designed for blown film products.
Mainly used in degradable garbage bags.
UX500 is one of the biodegradable materials planted in Zhejiang Province. It is a degradable thermoplastic resin and isspecially designedfor heat-resistant disposable lunch boxes.
GX503 It is one of the biodegradable materials planted in Zhejiang Province. It is a kind of degradable thermoplastic resin,speciallydesignedforheatresistant injection molding products. After heat treatment, the product can significantly increase its use temperature. Mainly used in disposable degradable tableware.
The plastic reduction action in Zhejiang Province covers a wider range of areas than the requirements of the plastic ban. It has advanced from the plastic tableware industry to the advertising industry. For example, the microplastic pollution caused by (PMMA) plate engraving needs to be treated After there are phased results, this kind of plastic waste pollution should also receive public attention.
BX500 It is one of the biodegradable materials planted in Zhejiang Province. It is derived from a degradable thermoplastic resin and is specially designed for 3D printing consumables for extrusion molding.
Zhejiang Sowing will continue to work hard to use the innovative technology of biodegradable materials to contribute to the transformation and upgrading of Zhejiang plastic products enterprises!
