The hottest packaging industry is developing rapid

  • Detail

With the rapid development of packaging industry, it is marching towards environmental protection industry in an all-round way.

nowadays, sustainable packaging, as a term, is no longer the basis for judging the quality of packaging. The report points out that the future development of sustainable packaging industry should focus on practicality and sustainability after use, rather than the packaging itself. In this regard, richhall, the leader of PWC, said that the sustainable packaging industry is developing in an all-round way in four main aspects: efficient products, efficient packaging, efficient transportation efficiency and efficient solutions

in recent 10 years, green or sustainable packaging has become a hot topic in the packaging industry. According to a newly released Market Research Report in the United States, the global green packaging market had a total market value of nearly 109billion US dollars last year, and this figure is expected to be close to 178billion US dollars by 2018. The packaging industry has changed its focus from the practicality of products to the requirements of environmental protection, such as safety, sanitation and easy recycling. The rapid development of China's packaging industry has caused many environmental problems. An all-round march into the environmental protection industry can win a second great development opportunity for the packaging industry. Enterprises can start as soon as possible and are expected to obtain double ideal returns

at present, China's packaging industry is in the stage of rapid development. However, the low basic level can no longer meet the overall development needs of the industry: the laws and regulations related to packaging lag behind, most enterprises are small-scale, the product technology content is low, excessive packaging has become a common phenomenon, and the problems such as poor quality packaging and waste have a negative impact on the ecological environment have become increasingly prominent. The data shows that the annual consumption of packaging materials in China can reach more than 30million tons, and the resulting packaging waste is about 16million tons, accounting for 25% of the volume and 15% of the weight of all urban waste, and showing an increasing trend year by year

internationally, green packaging also adheres to the principles of reduction, degradation, recycling, repetition and refilling. With the improvement of consumers' awareness of environmental protection, the requirements for food packaging have also increased accordingly. Therefore, China's food packaging industry should take this opportunity to carry out scientific and technological innovation, develop new green and environmentally friendly packaging that is conducive to sustainable development, and make the future of food packaging develop in the direction of safety, transparency, reduction, recycling, harmlessness, industrialization and internationalization. Because only the final packaging is qualified, the qualified food will be finally qualified

in these future directions, many enterprises can also obtain new development opportunities, such as enterprises engaged in tableware recycling. In my opinion, the recycling of packaging is also an important part of the future development direction of green packaging. Because we all know that recycling is the common goal of all kinds of food packaging manufacturers, operators and consumers. Only by bringing all kinds of packaging materials into the chain of circular economy and industrialized recycling can we solve the problem of sustainable development of the food packaging industry. The current situation is that recycling enterprises have not formed an industrial scale, and their business scale is still shrinking compared with a few years ago, mainly due to technical and financial problems. If enterprises make breakthroughs in technology, they may be able to change the current situation of this industry

at present, the packaging waste is increasing day by day, and the recycling technology has been preliminarily mature. Under the condition that the state proposes to treat the solid waste in the direction of reduction, harmlessness and recycling, it is not only feasible to invest in the recycling of packaging waste, but also promote the development of packaging industry

on the one hand, this is in line with the sustainable development strategy proposed by the state. The strengthening of environmental protection has solved the worries of the development of the packaging industry, and it can not be used as a stop button; Opening up new economic growth points; On the other hand, marching into the environmental protection industry can develop cheap raw material sources for the packaging industry, reduce the original production costs, and have both economic and ecological benefits

with the increase of the quantity of packaging waste, the cost of waste treatment is rising. It is a general trend to strengthen the recycling of packaging waste. However, in the process of the rapid development of packaging production, there is still a big gap between China and developed countries in terms of waste management, disposal and recycling. From the moment when physicists andreheim and Professor konstantinnovoselov of the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom won the Nobel Prize in physics

firstly, the recycling of packaging materials has obvious economic and ecological benefits. According to relevant experts, although there are many kinds of packaging wastes, they can be basically divided into four categories according to the material of packaging products: paper products, plastic products, glass products and metal products. Most of the packaging wastes are renewable resources

secondly, the continuous growth of packaging waste output provides sufficient production resources for recycling. According to the statistics of the total output of the national packaging industry, at present, the paper packaging products are about 8.35 million tons, the plastic packaging products are about 244 tons, and the various performance indexes of nylon materials used in automobile engine oil pan components have reached or even (partially) exceeded the design requirements by 10000 tons, the glass packaging products are about 4.44 million tons, and the metal packaging products are about 1.61 million tons. At the same time, these products are also growing at a rate ranging from 12.5% to 30% every year. Research data show that 1 ton of waste paper can be regenerated into 0.8 tons of new paper or 0.83 tons of paperboard; 1 ton of waste plastics can be recycled with 0.75 tons of diesel oil or 0.6 tons of unleaded gasoline. Thus, there is no need to worry about the problem of recycled raw materials

third, the treatment technology of packaging waste is becoming more and more mature. The treated packaging waste has broad uses and promising market prospects. After recycling, the waste snack box can be mixed with soil or other substrates through crushing and harmless treatment for soilless or semi soil cultivation. The waste plastic oiling technology uses high-performance catalysts to depolymerize high-density polyethylene or polypropylene plastics, which can produce diesel and gasoline that meet the national standards, with an oil production rate of more than 75%. If necessary devices are installed, liquefied gas and carbon black can also be recovered. By changing the catalyst, toluene, xylene, pure benzene and other chemical products can be produced

in addition, waste plastics (including PE, PP, PVC, PS) and filling mixtures (including a variety of urban and rural wastes such as activated carbon residues, crushed animal and plant wastes, weathered coal, humic acid and other powders) are used to form a fertilizer coating. The coating cost is only about 300 yuan/ton higher than that of ordinary compound fertilizers. This is an environmental protection project to turn white pollution into green fertilizer, which can absorb a large amount of packaging waste

with the increase of the quantity of packaging waste, the cost of waste treatment is rising. It is a general trend to strengthen the recycling of packaging waste. However, in the process of the rapid development of packaging production, there is still a big gap between China and developed countries in the management, disposal and recycling of waste. The environmental pollution caused by packaging products in the process of production, circulation and consumption has not been paid enough attention. Experts remind that the current investment in packaging waste recycling comes at a time when maintaining a good operating habit is a very important issue for the service life of the hydraulic universal testing machine
