Waste plastics have a strong growth momentum year by year, and the potential harm should not be underestimated. The consumption of plastic products is increasing year by year, which also leads to the strong growth momentum of waste plastics. According to statistics, China produces about 5million tons of waste plastics every year. In the first quarter of this year, Xiamen inspection and Quarantine Bureau only inspected 16030.9 tons and 1498 TEUs of imported waste plastics at Dongdu port, accounting for 43.0% and 46.4% of the total import of waste raw materials respectively, with a year-on-year increase of 103.5% and 111.6% respectively. The potential harm of waste plastics to the environment has become an environmental problem of concern to all sectors of our society
waste plastics have a strong growth momentum year by year, and the potential harm cannot be underestimated.
waste plastics are small in weight and large in quantity in garbage, which determines that its final disposal is not suitable for landfilling, but it is a macromolecular material with high calorific value. Its recycling is in line with the basic national policy of China's sustainable development, and it can also make full use of its intrinsic value, save resources and protect the environment. With the continuous development of China's plastic industry, the recycling of worn plastics, such as waste valves and oil cylinders, has become an important aspect of resource regeneration and environmental protection in China
not only domestic waste can be processed, but also imported waste raw materials from 26 countries or regions such as the United States, Indonesia, Chile, Peru, Canada and South Korea also contain huge business opportunities. In March 2014, only after mastering the import batch and standard box number of imported waste raw materials at Xiamen Dongdu port, can they be operated alone. The weight and value of goods increased by 85.57%, 95.78%, 94.63% and 79.17% respectively compared with the same period last year; Compared with February 2014, the import batch, number of standard containers, weight and value of imported waste raw materials increased by 52.54%, 16.63%, 11.12% and 23.40% respectively. There are six main types of imported waste materials, including waste plastics, waste paper, waste fabrics, waste aluminum, waste copper and waste tungsten carbide scrap, of which waste plastics account for 47.78% of the total batch
while seeing business opportunities, people also have doubts about the threat of waste plastics to environmental protection. Recently, Xiamen inspection and Quarantine Bureau conducted an inspection and Quarantine of a batch of waste plastics from Israel at Haicang port. It was found that the goods were used large plastic films, the surface of the goods was obviously adhered to the soil in yellow, some of them were mixed with flower fertilizer and plastic flowerpots, which gave off an unpleasant smell, and the overall sanitary condition was poor. After organizing the on-site review, it was identified as the used agricultural plastic film, and the batch of imported waste plastics was judged to be unqualified for environmental protection. The above goods have been returned out of the country
soil and used agricultural plastic film are solid wastes prohibited from import in China, which is the first imported waste plastic returned at Xiamen port without pre shipment inspection. According to the investigation, the domestic consignee of this batch of waste plastics made a deal with the foreign supplier only based on the drawings, did not send someone to participate in the acceptance and supervision, and did not carry out the pre shipment inspection at the time of shipment, resulting in serious quality problems in the actual arrival
in the future, waste recycling should begin to step into the road of normative development step by step - establishing waste recycling points, distribution markets, recycling parks, industrial bases and so on. There are many ways, and local governments have recited the 'hoop curse' on the recycling industry. Wu Lingyun, an analyst of Fubao information plastics, pointed out that at present, the standard route of the recycling industry is basically: take the community recycling site as C. double report editing: fully open user editing report basis, take the sorting and processing center as the node, and take the large renewable resource recycling base as the hub to form a renewable resource recycling network and industrial chain
