Some Thoughts on Plastic Market and Environmental Protection
Since the implementation of the "Energy Conservation Law of the People's Republic of China" since April 1, 2008, it is clear that in order to promote the whole society to conserve energy, improve energy efficiency, protect and improve the environment and promote comprehensive and coordinated economic and social development, The Saving resources is the basic national policy of our country. National implementation of conservation and development simultaneously, the energy conservation strategy in the first place. It aims to strengthen energy management, to take technically feasible, economically reasonable and environmentally and socially affordable measures, from energy production to consumption in all aspects, reduce consumption, reduce losses and pollutant emissions, stop waste, effective and reasonable Use energy. It can be said that environmental protection and energy conservation and rising to the height of legal norms. The international community and China are encouraged to use the development and utilization of new and renewable resources. Then for large energy - plastic market, no doubt both opportunities and challenges. And last year announced the implementation of the "plastic limit order" for the financial crisis hit the plastic market, the short term to see if there is worse, but long-term development point of view, is not a good thing, but also for the future development of the plastics market The direction. First of all, the Chinese Academy of Sciences on the 10th China released the road map for the development of science and technology for 2050, which set the goal of biomass science and technology development roadmap to ensure that the country's future sustainable use of biomass resources for China's 21st century biological resources science and technology, Economic development to provide resources security protection, to achieve China's biomass resources from the biomass resources and bio-economic power to a fundamental change. Which pointed out that the establishment of a sound biomass energy conversion application theory system and technology integration, improve the level of biomass energy, to achieve large-scale commercial application of biomass energy to replace about 30% of imported oil. We know that the most direct upstream product is oil, and our oil dependence is about 60%, so that our external energy demand will be greatly reduced, while the domestic and even the world's environmental pollution problems to provide practical Effective solution. This will strengthen the adjustment and upgrading of China's plastics industry structure, eliminate some low-capacity and high-consumption enterprises, and make the Chinese economy take the road of real sustainable development possible. Second, the cost of environmental issues is difficult to really solve the root cause of the problem. June 1 last year, "plastic limit order" from the implementation of the thickness of less than 0.025 mm ultra-thin plastic shopping bags officially out of the stage of history, consumers also need to pay their own bags to meet the standard plastic bags. In the "limited", "paid" to a large extent to promote environmental protection, the white pollution remains hidden. The reason is mainly the high cost of environmentally friendly shopping bags, the use of low, because the "plastic limit order" does not limit the production and sale of non-degradable plastic bags, for cost and other factors, the city business to sell plastic Bags can not be degraded. To fundamentally solve the white pollution, can not be separated from the extensive use of biodegradable plastic bags, but the cost has been restricting the popularity of degradable plastic bags bottleneck. In terms of cost, the market price of plastic raw materials on the market is about 7,000 yuan / ton, the price of its masterbatch about 10,000 yuan / ton, according to the second raw materials 70%, 30% Degradation of plastic bags production costs about 7900 yuan, if the production of 5g plastic bags, raw materials per ton can produce 200,000, flat down to raise the cost of minimal At present, the biodegradable masterbatch production technology can control the degradation period of plastic products as needed, and can produce degradable shopping bags, garbage bags, biodegradable plastic film, biodegradable products and woven products. Among the raw materials, there is no requirement for upgrading the equipment. But because the environmental protection of plastic products did not form a scale, so short plastic bags, want to say goodbye is not easy. There are a group of numbers can see a glimpse of the whole picture: 84% of people think that "plastic limit" on life almost no impact, 11% of people that little effect, only 5% said the impact is very large. third. The enactment of the plastic seal is a remedy for the treatment of the table. We look at a group of data: 42% said that the plastic bag charges, limiting the use of plastic bags; 25% said that increased the cost of consumers; 33% said that although the move To some extent limit the use of plastic bags, but the original intention of environmental protection, is a temporary solution, after all, the cost of a few cents at the cost of shopping, can only be counted as "little money." So, what is the meaning of "plastic limit"? From the "Notice" issued by the General Office of the State Council, you can find the answer. "In the notice," the plastic shopping bag in the convenience of consumers at the same time, due to excessive use and recycling is not in place and other reasons, but also caused a serious waste of energy resources and environmental pollution. "Therefore," excessive use and Recycling is not in place "is the plastic bag is not the root cause of environmental protection. In view of this, plastic bags can not directly and "not environmentally friendly" equate, the rational use of plastic bags, promote the comprehensive utilization of resources, is the "plastic limit order" the ultimate goal.
