Subsequently, this adjustment led to the attention of all sectors of society, for a time, questioned sound everywhere. Recently, the Development and Reform Commission Industrial Coordination Division issued "on the" one-time plastic foam tableware, "the provisions of the adjustment," explain the lifting of the five reasons. However, the relevant industry insiders for this lifting of the dispute did not stop.
Recently, the Development and Reform Commission Industrial Coordination Division in the National Development and Reform Commission website published "on the" one-time foam plastic tableware "entry adjustment instructions. "Description" said the "one-time foam plastic tableware," a large number of use caused a "white pollution", the relevant state departments clearly put forward by the end of 2000 in the nationwide elimination of disposable foam plastic tableware goal. And this will be removed from the out of class, has been "on the adjustment of the entry to seek the Ministry of Environmental Protection, Ministry of Industry, General Administration of Quality Supervision, Administration of Industry and Commerce, Ministry of Health, Food and Drug Administration and other relevant departments, To remove the agreement.
At the same time, "description" for no longer a one-time foam tableware as a product out of five reasons.
First, a one-time plastic foam tableware in line with national food packaging appliances related standards. China National Center for Disease Control and Prevention of food safety by the relevant national standards after the test, the results show that disposable foam tableware in line with "food packaging with polystyrene resin health standards" (GB9692-1988) and "food packaging with polystyrene molding Product health standards "(GB9689-1988).
Second, after use can be recycled. After the use of disposable foam plastic tableware through recycling, processing, re-use, can produce building materials, coatings, stationery and other products, to achieve the re-use of resources.
Third, many countries and regions in the world have been in use. Such as the United States, the European Union, Japan, has been in the production and use of disposable foam plastic tableware, and also continue to develop disposable foam plastic tableware new products.
Fourth, you can save oil resources. Disposable foam plastic tableware quality light, less supplies, can reduce the consumption of raw materials, in line with the direction of resource conservation.
Fifth, the social environment has changed. Waste recycling system gradually established, the level of comprehensive utilization of resources to further enhance the initial ban on the use of disposable foam plastic tableware environment has undergone great changes.
Five associations: foam tableware itself safe and harmless
Disposable foam plastic tableware should not be banned in the industry also caused controversy. China Light Industry Federation, China Plastics Processing Industry Association, China Environmental Science Society of Green Packaging Professional Committee, China Packaging Federation of plastic products Packaging Committee and the China Association for the promotion of production of circular economy branch of the five associations have been behind the foam tableware.
Recently, the five associations held a "bubble plastic tableware industry policy adjustment ventilation will be", "foam tableware itself is safe and sound, is the green packaging products.
China plastic tableware joint meeting director Li Peisheng openly said that the softening temperature of foam tableware 80 ℃, the production and use of the process does not have a strong carcinogen "dioxin" to produce the required conditions above 200 ℃, and the international Several organizations have experimented with the release of polyethyleneware dimer, the trimer does not have estrogen properties, so the foam tableware itself is safe and harmless, is the green packaging products. At the same time he said that the 2010 survey data show that the market is still more than 70% of the foam tableware, indicating that the market has a great demand.
Packaging Association: "Recycling is a big problem"
While the International Food Packaging Association, the Secretary-General Dong Jinshi is a strong opposition to the foam tableware.
As the foam tableware compared to non-foam products, low prices, "There are still more than 100 domestic enterprises in secretly continue to produce foam tableware, about 15 billion per year sales." In Tianjin, foam tableware still has 20% of the market. He said that under the ban, foam tableware is still still widely used, once the ban lifted, "white pollution" is bound to flood.
"Recycling is a big problem." Dong Jinshi said that the recycling of foam tableware, even in Europe and the United States is also a difficult problem in developed countries, the United States to develop the recovery rate is only 25%. The domestic production of foam utensils are mostly workshop-style small businesses, both from the technical or financial resources can not be done on the efficient recycling of foam tableware. "At present, China's recycling system is not perfect, Development and Reform Commission's" note "and there is no substantive content and specific plans.
In this regard, the Development and Reform Commission said that at present, the relevant departments are stepping up production license management, industry access, recycling system construction, environmental protection and supervision and enforcement and other related aspects of the preparatory work to ensure that May 1, 2013 "National Development and Reform Commission On the amendment of the relevant provisions of the decision "after the formal implementation of" one-time foam plastic tableware "to adjust the smooth transition and smooth implementation.
