Issuing time:2023-09-04 16:09
China is the world's largest producer and consumer of plastics, and plastic pollution has become the second most important environmental issue after climate change. In order to solve the dilemma of plastic pollution, CCTV's only in-depth investigative program, the weekly 45-minute "News Investigation", on August 26th and August 19th (Saturday), two consecutive issues of "Plastic and Pollution" special report.
CCTV News gives full play to its leading role in exploring a new model for the plastics recycling economy together with upstream and downstream industries.
The first official appearance of the term "circular economy" was in the Circular Economy and Waste Management Act promulgated by Germany in 1996, and since the 1990s, the concept of sustainable development has gradually become a world trend, and the circular economy has been regarded as an important way to realize sustainable development.
Under the guidance of the concept of circular economy, China has successively introduced a number of policies for the treatment of plastic pollution, and has gradually evolved from the early stage of focusing on the treatment of key areas to the stage of comprehensive treatment centered on the development of a circular economy. In years of practice, China's legal and policy system for plastic pollution control has been continuously improved, the areas and scope of coverage have been expanded, and the intensity of control has been increasing.
Nowadays, people's concept of waste plastic pollution management is progressing and improving, emphasizing the need to strengthen stock management rather than flow management - to strengthen the management and recycling of plastic raw materials and products that have already been produced and accumulated, and to minimize the production and use of brand-new raw materials. Only in this way can we truly realize reduction and infinite recycling. This requires a change from the original downgrading utilization of waste plastics after recycling to the same level of utilization, or even upgrading utilization.
Dr. Xiong said in the CCTV "News Investigation", the degraded use of recycled plastics is common, for example, like food containers, beverage bottles are all made of food-grade, high-value virgin plastic materials, but after being recycled, they can only be made into furniture, household goods, etc., and it is difficult to be made into plastic packaging in direct contact with food.
The recycled polypropylene pellets of Shanghai Re-mall Environmental New Materials Co., Ltd.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Shanghai Re-poly Environmental Technology Co. No-objection letter issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for processes that effectively remove possible contaminants.
With the mission of "Promoting the resource utilization of recycled plastics through technology and innovation, and protecting the environment", Re-mall will continue to plough into the high-end application market, and further promote the steady improvement of the application of recycled materials at the same level. We will make greater contributions to the goal of sustainable development and create a green future together.
