The hottest way to recycle plastic packaging

Talking about the way of recycling plastic packaging

Plastic packaging has been rapidly developed and widely used in the field of packaging materials since the 1970s because of its excellent characteristics such as light weight, high strength, convenience and low price, which greatly facilitates people's life. However, because most plastic packaging materials are difficult to degrade naturally, their packaging waste will form permanent waste and cause pollution to the environment. Therefore, when using and designing plastic packaging materials, we should fully consider the degradability, recycling possibility and recycling ways of plastic packaging materials. The government should also take measures to promote the research and development of degradable plastics to promote the development of circular economy

according to the latest statistics provided by the National Bureau of statistics and the Light Industry Federation, the main economic indicators of China's plastic products industry achieved overall growth in 2005, with an increase rate of more than 25%, and the total industrial output value reached 50. If the friction coefficient was 1.1 billion yuan. According to the analysis of industry insiders, although the price of plastic raw materials remained high in 2005, the strong market demand, the increase in exports, the development of new application fields and the growth in the output of high value-added products still contributed to the overall growth of the economic indicators of the industry. At present, packaging has become the largest user of plastics, with an annual consumption of more than 6 million tons

however, exquisite plastic packaging often turns into waste in an instant. With the rapid growth of plastic packaging, the environmental problems caused by Tyvek's two major factories are also increasingly serious in the United States and Europe. In particular, the waste of disposable plastic packaging materials is large, scattered and messy, which is difficult to collect. Some of these garbage are discarded randomly and scattered on the ground, polluting the city appearance and environmental landscape, and bringing adverse effects to economic development and ecological environment

in order to solve this problem, the government, enterprises and the majority of scientific and technological workers have done a lot of work. There are some who advocate using less, restricting and banning; It is necessary to advocate and formulate local regulations to enforce the implementation of degradable plastics; It is proposed to make use of the economy and make the following preparations: there are also economic means (taxes and charges) to guide consumption. Unfortunately, many measures have had little effect. People are inconvenient by restricting and banning their use, and charging increases the burden on them

facts have proved that modern society is inseparable from plastic, and dredging is better than blocking. Using materials with better performance and price ratio, developing degradable plastics with technologies and methods more in line with the characteristics of the times, and increasing the recycling and reuse of plastic waste are the way to solve the 'white pollution'. The author believes that at present, the recycling and treatment of plastic packaging material wastes should adopt a multi-channel and multi-channel method, and rank them according to the meaning beneficial to the sustainable development of the ecological environment. The first is recycling, the second is recycling or incineration to obtain energy, the third is landfill, and the fourth is to replace them with biodegradable materials

scottreeve, the owner of the company, said in an interview that recycling is mainly applicable to pallets, turnover boxes, large packaging boxes, plastic barrels and other containers used for transportation and packaging. For plastic packaging that is easy to recycle, physical and chemical modification can be used for regeneration, so that limited materials can be recycled. For those disposable plastic packaging containers that are difficult to recycle, incineration, landfill or replacement with biodegradable materials will be a good choice. Although it is difficult to point out which method is the best, we should emphasize which method is more suitable. According to the actual situation in various regions and fields, choosing the right one is the best
