In order to restrict or prohibit the production, sales, use, and treatment of plastic products, and reduce environmental pollution, the ban on plastic products has been adopted and implemented by more and more countries and regions worldwide.
The New Zealand government announced that from July 1, shopping malls and supermarkets are prohibited from providing or selling disposable plastic food bags, disposable plastic tableware and plastic straws, and illegal businesses may be fined up to NZ $100000 (about 452000 yuan).
Waste Plastic pollution are seriously polluted. Countries not only tighten the use of plastic packaging from the source through plastic restriction orders and plastic prohibition orders, but also seek alternatives from downstream applications. Developed countries and large multinational enterprises in the world have gradually attached importance to the treatment and application of renewable plastics. Many countries have committed to recycling and reusing plastic packaging by no less than 35% by 2030, which provides development space for renewable plastics and degradable plastic materials.
In 2021, the recycling volume and value of recycled plastics in China have shown a significant rebound trend, basically returning to pre epidemic levels. According to statistics and calculations from the Recycled Plastics Branch of the China Material Recycling Association, the recycling volume of waste plastics in China in 2021 was approximately 19 million tons, an increase of 19% year-on-year; Thanks to the increase in prices and recycling volume, the output value of waste plastic recycling in China in 2021 was approximately 105 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 33%.
In short, the market for plastic waste recycling has broad prospects and a promising future. Through the household and community waste recycling markets, enterprises and institutions waste recycling markets, and plastic waste recycling markets, more resources can be brought to plastic waste recycling enterprises, while also promoting the development of environmental protection
