Development status of degradable plastics in China

  • Detail

The development of degradable plastics in China began in the mid-1970s, but it was undoubtedly a huge business opportunity in the 1990s. With people's attention to environmental protection, the popularity of degradable plastics rose in China. However, due to blind action, the development of degradable plastics has been frustrated. However, at present, the development of degradable plastics has been relatively rational. Relevant departments are considering resources, technology, economy, market, environmental protection and other aspects according to national conditions, studying new technologies, developing new efficient degradants, and improving time control, rapid degradation and complete degradation to 12% And actively study scientific and reasonable test evaluation methods and standards

at present, the varieties of degradable plastics researched and developed in China include photodegradation, photodegradation/biodegradation, photodegradation/calcium carbonate, photodegradation/oxygen/biodegradation (environmental degradation), complete biodegradation, disintegrating biodegradation and other plastics, as well as high filled calcium carbonate environmentally friendly materials. Among them, light/biodegradable and environmentally degradable plastic mulching films have been listed in the national "Eighth Five Year Plan" and "Ninth Five Year Plan" key scientific and technological research plans; Modified starch and its biodegradable functional masterbatch and products were listed as an industrial demonstration project by the State Development Planning Commission in 1999; Fully degradable plastics pH BV, pH as, PLA, PCL, etc. have been listed in the national "Ninth Five Year Plan" key scientific and technological research and 863 plan. In general, except for synthetic photodegradable and fully biodegradable plastics, the clamping force of samples in the research and development process of degradable plastics in China will change with wear, keeping pace with the world, and the technical level is close to the world advanced level

according to incomplete statistics, at present, there are more than 100 manufacturers engaged in degradable plastics in China, and a development system combining production, study and research has been formed. Nearly 100 twin-screw degradation masterbatch production lines have been built, with a production capacity of about 100000 tons. Some enterprises have been officially put into production or batch production, with an output of about 20000 ~ 30000 tons

among them, the starch based Biodegradation Technology and eco-friendly series products developed by Tianjin Danhai company not only have good biodegradation performance, but also can save oil resources, and can greatly reduce the amount of plastic waste, which is in line with the principles of resource saving and reduction. Also, because its waste is conducive to composting treatment and in line with the treatment measures of re resourcefulness, it has attracted attention at home and abroad, and the products are steadily entering the domestic and international markets. In addition, Jilin Jinying industrial Degradable Plastics Co., Ltd., Ningxia Huaxi degradable resin products Co., Ltd. and the Environmental Research Institute of Fuzhou Normal University have all developed good technologies and materials and have great development strength. China's fully biodegradable plastics have also made gratifying progress in recent years. Tsinghua University and Ningbo Biotechnology Co., Ltd. are carrying out production and product application tests

in China, the developed degradable plastics are mainly used in fields such as farmland, packaging, daily consumer goods, etc. the main products developed include mulching film, seedling bowl, fertilizer bag, compost bag, packaging film (bag), food bag, supermarket shopping bag, garbage bag, fast food tableware, beverage cup, tablecloth, gloves, golf seats, etc

at present, degradable plastic mulching film is in the stage of demonstration application, disposable packaging materials and household sundries are being orderly introduced to the market, and some masterbatches and products have entered the international market. Fully biodegradable plastic products in the pilot stage are also actively exploring the market in medical materials, high-end packaging materials, dressings and other fields
