Is there any policy for the research on reasonable handling and recycling of packaging? Find the answer
Introduction: Recently, the editor learned from the official website of the Ministry of industry and information technology that the Ministry of industry and information technology and the Ministry of Commerce issued the interpretation draft of the guiding opinions on accelerating the transformation and development of China’s packaging industry. In view of the long-term failure to effectively solve the recycling problem of packaging materials, the two ministries and commissions put forward measures such as vigorously promoting reduction and ecological design, studying and formulating policies to promote the recycling and utilization of packaging waste. Earlier, the State Post Office announced the implementation plan for promoting green packaging in the express industry. The guidance and implementation of a series of policies will effectively improve the recycling rate of express packaging and promote the green development of the express industry
in recent years, with the rise of online shopping and the accelerated development of the logistics industry, the use of express packaging has shown a blowout growth. In 2016, the amount of express delivery has exceeded 30 billion pieces, and more than 4 million tons of packaging waste have been generated. Zhao Yingmin, Vice Minister of environmental protection, said in an interview earlier that China has become the most developed country in online shopping, but there are still a lot of resource and energy consumption and waste in the whole link of logistics. How to classify, recycle and reuse express packaging and promote the green development of express industry has become an urgent problem for our government and enterprises
express packaging waste has soared and the recycling rate is low
according to the report on the development status and trend of green packaging in China’s express field, in 2015, more than 4 million tons of packaging waste consumed about 3.1 billion woven bags, about 8.268 billion plastic bags, about 3.105 billion envelopes, about 9.922 billion packaging boxes, about 16.985 billion meters of tape and about 2.977 billion internal buffers. The total length of the tape alone can make 425 circles around the earth’s equator. Eighty percent of the express packing boxes were directly thrown away. The waste glue produced has a great impact on the environment. Environmentalists pointed out that it takes at least 100 years for the tape to decompose naturally in the soil, and the pollution to the water and soil environment should not be underestimated.
