New Industry Model - Self-Circulation Of Plastic Products
- Jan 11, 2019 -

At present, although China's plastic recycling sector has a lot of production capacity, due to historical reasons, it is basically the main business model of trade, processing, recycling and sales as the industrial value chain. Last year, the model was forced to change.

      However, the production method of plastic products is mainly based on the use of new materials by enterprises. Even if some enterprises use recycled materials, it is also a model for mixing new materials with recycled materials. The majority of plastic products enterprises and recycled materials manufacturers are independent legal entities. Supply and demand, and the use of plastic recycled materials is mostly used for so-called "downgrade".

      Wang Ren, deputy secretary-general of the Plastics Recycling Branch of the China Synthetic Resin Association, believes that if the production of plastic products can be more closely integrated with the recycling and recycling of recycled plastics, the market application of recycled plastics will be further expanded.

      How to locate the downstream market of recycled plastics?

      Recently, in the process of communicating with enterprises, they often ask the same question. Many brands and products companies have high enthusiasm for recycling and even recycling their plastic waste, but how to find a downstream application market for processing enterprises and their recycled plastics. It becomes difficult, and this is often where they look for associations and want professional help.

      For example, HDPE is the most popular plastic recycling product in the plastic recycling industry, which is second only to PET. However, HDPE recovered through pesticide packaging needs to be cautiously searched for its application market in Europe and America. HDPE pesticide containers are not only washed three times or at high pressure, but their recycled pellets can only be applied to specific industries, such as underground pipes and cables, agrochemical containers, and so on.

      In fact, after the pesticide container has been treated and regenerated, the final plastic particles are applied to the pesticide packaging, which is a good application direction, because the product company knows the performance and characteristics of its own products and how to process it.

      Where did the recycled plastic come from!

      Under the contact with Ton Emans, Chairman of the EPR European Plastics Circulators Association (PRE), Mr. Wang learned that Tono’s Cedo is not only one of the largest film producers in Europe, but also produces and supplies many familiar kitchen products for supermarkets. Such as cling film, garbage bags, food bags, aluminum foil, etc., and the company also has the largest membrane recycling processing center in Europe, and its recycled pellets are mainly supplied to the company's factories in the UK and Poland for the production of garbage bags and garbage. Barrel lining. Cedo is also an important member of the MacArthur Foundation Plastics Working Group.

       In Japan, companies such as Mitsubishi and Panasonic own the WEEE dismantling plant, and after recycling and recycling its plastic waste, its recycled plastic pellets can be reused in the production of its own appliances.

      In China, although there are not many companies of this type, some plastic products companies have begun to take action to lay out the plastic recycling business. Yunnan Qujing Plastics (Group) Co., Ltd. has launched a film recycling project in recent years. The company recycles agricultural film from tobacco growing farms for cleaning and granulation, and recently launched its recycled pellets for agricultural film production. test.

      There are many benefits to product companies that carry out their own recycling and recycling businesses:

      They know their product performance requirements and technical indicators best, so they can efficiently recycle their products and expand the application range of PCR plastics.

      The world is advocating closed-loop, reduction and recycling, and product companies are involved in it, not only can expand their business scope, save money, but also contribute to society and sustainable development.

       In addition, the country is implementing a system of producer responsibility extension in different fields. Many new laws and regulations have clearly stated that producers are responsible for the recycling of their products. In this context, plastic products and recycling companies may more and more.
