The plastic waste industry in many countries is in turmoil next year


For a long time, domestic imported particles are not common, and policies and regulations in related fields are not perfect. Only in 2014, China waste plastics association organized communication with environmental protection, customs and other relevant departments and proposed "three unified" supervision methods, so that most plastic recycled particles could be supervised according to general raw materials instead of solid waste management. But driven by profits, all kinds of doping, false report, conceal the phenomenon repeatedly banned. 2018, the general administration of customs supervision to send documents to the customs directly under guangdong branch and the physical, recycled plastic granules, batches of import goods if with the same color, grain size and shape is consistent, packaging, and meet the plastic material or product related specifications and standards, can not in accordance with the regulation of solid waste, which is on the market principle of the "three line".

This September, the polymer industry association of shenzhen issued the "import of recycled plastic particles and the import of solid waste plastic fast identification method", published a month later on October 13, 2018formally implemented. "Identification method" and "odor", "dust" test requirements. The shape of recycled plastic particles is required to belong to a shape category, which includes cylindrical, ellipsoid, ellipsoid, oblate and quasi-spherical shapes, allowing ellipsoid, ellipsoid, oblate and quasi-spherical shapes to mix with each other, and allowing fewer connecting particles. The color of dust should be basically consistent with the color of the main body, and the turbidity of recycled plastic particles in water should be less than 5. In terms of odor, if the particles are obviously different from the smell of the material itself, further detection is required.

As an environmentally friendly industry, environmental protection should be taken into consideration wherever it is located. After experiencing less than one rapid development, the southeast Asian market quickly entered a recession period after the tightening of environmental protection policies in the region. Thailand is gradually banning waste. In mid-august, it announced that it would stop importing 432 types of e-waste for six months. In November, Thailand decided to import no more than 70,000 plastic waste products in 2019, 40,000 in 2020 and no more plastic waste products in 2021.

Vietnam bans the import of waste by land. In September, Vietnam's prime minister said he would not issue new certificates or extend the validity of the certificates to waste import agents, but only to waste import enterprises that prove they have the need and ability to use the imported wastes as raw materials and meet the environmental standards. It is also not allowed to import waste materials only for primary processing. From October 1, Vietnam banned the import of waste materials by land.

Malaysia import cost plus, from October 23 on foreign garbage levy 15 ringgit /(RMB, about 25/) import tax. Cost plus 10%. Meanwhile, goods without valid import license are not allowed to be unloaded at the port of destination, Malaysia.

Late regeneration particles can not enter into the

In addition to the above mentioned policy tightening on the recycling industry of recycled plastic particles in major exporting countries and the reduction of foreign supply, China has also maintained a high-pressure supervision mode on imported particles for a long time.

At present, domestic control of imported recycled particles is relatively strong. Has carried out the sword action, doors all round 2018 "blue sky", issued in April "port inspection unit one-time implementation scheme of joint inspection", strive to be an overhaul of the country before the end of 2018 all ports, the ecological environment in stages across the country to carry out the "import of solid waste processing enterprise environment and law specific inspection action". In the continuous inspection process, many batches of unqualified solid waste were detected at the major import particle passes in dalian, tianjin, Qingdao, ningbo, guangzhou and shenzhen. After the solid waste inspection, the qualitative waste has been returned. Meanwhile, from mid-september this year, relevant departments of tianjin customs joint port launched a large-scale "solid waste clearance" operation.

After the import particle excitation, the customs began to fully control the regenerated particles, large regenerated particles pressure port, for several months. In terms of "inspection", "assay" and "solid waste attribute identification", the import industry of renewable particles in 2018 has been in a fog. After the implementation of the new test standards, particle imports worry.
