How to break the ban on plastic? Committee members recommended the development of new degradable materials and the establishment of a traceability system
The third session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee will open at 3 pm on the 21st. Interface News was informed that Lan Minbo, member of the CPPCC National Committee in Shanghai and director of the Management Committee of Jinshan Science and Technology Park of East China University of Science and Technology, pointed out in his proposal that after the ban on plastics was issued There is an urgent need to develop a large number of new biodegradable materials and products, and it is recommended to improve the related biodegradable evaluation mechanism and product standards.
On January 19, 2020, the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment jointly issued a document saying that by the end of 2020, China will be the first to ban and restrict the production, sale and use of some plastic products in certain regions and areas; by the end of 2022, disposable plastics The consumption of products has decreased significantly, and alternative products have been promoted.
Lan Minbo pointed out that in order to promote the implementation of the "Plastics Prohibition Opinions", China will improve the support system, establish and improve regulations and standards, promote the revision of relevant laws and regulations, and incorporate plastic pollution prevention and control into relevant laws and regulations; Limited directory etc.
To truly meet the various control requirements put forward by the "Prohibition on Plastics", there will still be many problems.
Lan Minbo pointed out that the profit-seeking nature of the market will lead to the continued emergence of prohibited plastic products after the implementation of the "prohibition opinions", which requires rapid detection technology with effective law enforcement to identify the banned ingredients.
However, at present, there is no legally effective relevant rapid testing standard, and there is no relevant measurement traceable standard product; the testing and testing library corresponding to the rapid testing technology has not been constructed; meanwhile, on-site law enforcement in the market urgently needs relevant mobile Instruments, but there are no ready-made domestic mobile instruments available.
Secondly, with the prohibition of non-degradable plastics, a large number of biodegradable alternatives will be required. After the implementation of the "plastic ban opinion", it may lead to the excessively rapid rise in the price of limited materials, affecting the market and implementation effect of the plastic ban.
Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop a large number of new biodegradable materials and products to improve the related biodegradable evaluation mechanism and product standards.
