Over the past year, the environmental protection situation has continued to escalate tensely. In the face of endless environmental protection incidents, national and regional environmental protection policies around the world and international environmental protection agreements have become more and more strict, leaving us It is endless thinking about survival and development. This special topic will take you into the environmental protection policy and environmental protection exploration of the plastic (machinery) industry from 2018 to the first half of 2019, together to find the future development of the industry.
On the evening of May 10, 2019, representatives from 186 countries around the world unanimously adopted the amendments to the Basel Convention aimed at controlling the international transfer of hazardous waste in Geneva, Switzerland. However, it is shocking that when countries expressed their support and appreciation for this "international ban" of Fukuzawa, opposition from the United States appeared. [detailed]
On March 13, 2018, the State Council's institutional reform plan was announced. According to this plan, after the reform, the number of agencies at the ministerial level of the State Council has been reduced by eight, and the number of agencies at the sub-ministerial level has been reduced by seven. In addition to the General Office of the State Council, the State Council has established 26 departments. Among them, in order to form the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, the Ministry of Environmental Protection will no longer be retained.
From January 18 to 19, 2019, the 2019 National Conference on Ecological Environmental Protection was held. Li Ganjie, Minister of the Ecological Environment, stated that China will complete the second round of central ecological environmental protection inspection and "look back" in 4 years. Different from the previous round, this round will not only inspect the Party committees and governments of provinces (regions, cities), but also inspect the relevant departments of the State Council and central enterprises.
According to the website information of the State Post Bureau, in order to implement the new era of ecological civilization, fight the pollution control of the postal industry, and guide the companies that run the express delivery business to do green packaging, according to the "Interim Regulations on Express Delivery" and other relevant regulations, the State Post Bureau formulated and issued "Guidelines for Green Packaging in the Express Industry (Trial)" (hereinafter referred to as the "Guide") stipulates the goals of the industry's green packaging work, that is, green packaging in the express industry adheres to the goals of standardization, reduction and recyclability, and strengthens collaboration with upstream and downstream To gradually reduce and reuse packaging materials.
The Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Quality Supervision recently announced that the national standards for takeaway food delivery box groups were officially released. After the implementation of group standards, the take-out industry will use plastic film bowls with more mature production technology to replace plastic food delivery boxes. On the basis of ensuring the quality and safety of food delivery boxes, plastic waste can be reduced by more than 75%.
What new regulations have been issued in the plastics machine industry in 2018? What is restricted in it? As a plastic machine man, where do we go next? Let's take a look together!
In the past two years, "environmental protection" has become a very hot topic! All sectors of society are continuously paying attention to a series of activities such as resource conservation and recycling. From the state to the local to the individual, environmental protection has penetrated into all aspects of our lives. In the first half of 2019, the new environmental protection policy strikes again, and what areas will be involved, it is worth our attention.
With the development of new formats such as takeaway, express delivery, and e-commerce in recent years, the consumption of plastic lunch boxes, plastic packaging, etc. has risen rapidly. About 20 billion plastic bags are generated every year around the world, making plastic pollution increasingly harmful to the earth.
Since the State Council issued the "Plastic Restriction Order" in 2007, there have been ten. I still remember that the "plastic limit order" had a certain effect when it was first implemented. However, with the development of time, the "plastic limit order" not only failed to achieve its due effect, but the use of plastic bags not only decreased but actually increased. . Solving the plastic problem did not happen overnight, but what caused the situation today?
At the G20 summit on June 29, countries agreed on the issue of marine plastic waste-"reducing marine plastic to 0 by 2050". The host Japan also called for more than the G20 at the UN General Assembly this autumn. Countries work together to make it a global goal. G20's focus on marine plastic waste once again puts the contradiction between plastic and the environment in front of people's eyes, and marine plastic waste has once again become the focus of attention of various countries.
China ’s fifth microplastic survey in the Indian Ocean has brought marine microplastics into the limelight. Marine microplastics are known as “PM2.5 in the ocean.” The research results published by a French research institute further stated that Experiments with oysters can't help but worry that marine microplastics can also affect human fertility. When plastic pollution in the ocean poses a great threat to people's living environment. So, what should humans do in the face of this situation?
From environmental protection supervision to the implementation of national policies, it reflects the increasingly severe relationship between human survival and the environment. The overweight of a series of environmental protection policies around the world, let us reflect on it. Participating in environmental protection actions has become the common responsibility of all mankind. They have accumulated thousands of miles, and everyone is part of this battle.
Faced with the current environmental situation, it is not too late to actively find new ways to stop losses in a timely manner. While remedying the past, we will deeply cultivate scientific research, establish rules, and live in harmony with nature. I believe that the future of mankind will be full of hope.
