Is the 7million ton waste plastic gap a blessing or a curse

with the announcement of the 26th batch of waste plastics import approval in 2018, the * year of "waste prohibition" has come to an end. Although the waste prohibition has been implemented since the second half of 2017, we will treat 2018 as a * year of waste prohibition, and give a big praise to the "living" waste plastics friends

this year of prohibition and abolition has really caught many large, medium and small enterprises by surprise. Large enterprises have gone abroad to build factories, and companies with strong ability are successively acquiring foreign recycling enterprises. Neutral enterprises are running around looking for sources of goods, while small enterprises and small workshops are forced to disappear

let's first review the import of waste plastics from 2017 to 2018:

according to the statistical data, the import of waste plastics in the first half of 2017 reached 7.0506 million tons, and 76000 tons in 2018, accounting for only 1.1% of the import of waste plastics in 2017. However, in more than a year, the import volume suddenly dropped from millions of tons to tens of thousands of tons.

"how can the gap of nearly 7million tons of waste plastics be filled?"

"can imported regenerated particles fill this big hole?"

"how can China develop recycling industry to recycle" waste plastics "

this will be another huge challenge that the industry will face soon

according to customs statistics, as of August 31, 2018, China had imported 1.73 million tons of recycled plastics under general trade, with a duty paid price of 9.8 billion, an increase over 2017. Under other trade items, 70000 tons of recycled plastics were imported, and the duty paid price was 460million yuan. The overall import volume of recycled plastics in 2018 was nearly double that in 2017

the change-over switch should be turned to the loading position. It is estimated that the total import of recycled plastics will exceed 2million tons this year and reach 4million tons in 2019. In 2018, the gap of China's imported materials will be about million tons. If the import of recycled plastic particles doubles this year by about 1million tons, less than 1/6 of the imported materials will be made up. By implication, there is a gap of nearly 5million tons that needs to be made up by new materials and domestic materials

this is a visible business opportunity

although the total import of recycled plastics increased in 2018, the import of recycled PE in China has been declining in the past five years

since the hedgerow action in February 2013, environmental protection supervision has become more and more strict. In addition, the domestic plastic market was depressed from 2015 to 2016, and the import volume of recycled polyethylene fell rapidly. Then right click on my computer. In just two years, the import volume of recycled PE has dropped to 3.5683 million tons, a drop of 18.95%. In the following years, the import volume fell by 20% - 30%. Until this year, the import volume fell to the freezing point

according to statistics, the import volume of recycled PE from January to September 2018 was 10300 tons, a decrease of 1666100 tons compared with the same period last year, a decrease of 99.39%. The domestic recycling market of polyethylene recycled particles is also poor. From January to October 2018, the domestic recycled polyethylene recovery was 2427700 tons, a decrease of 17.84% compared with 2017

at present, the supply pressure in China's plastic market is not prominent, which is mainly limited by downstream demand. This year, many downstream manufacturers were affected by environmental protection supervision and plastic ban order, and the operating rate and product output decreased. However, in the later stage, domestic plastic product factories will operate stably, and the supply pressure in the plastic market will gradually become prominent. However, the above gap of nearly 7million tons will also break out in an all-round way. Therefore, the supply of plastic market will still be less than demand in the general direction. In the later stage, we must pay close attention to the new production capacity and do a good job in macro-control

therefore, we can not help worrying that with more and more * closing the door to waste, a garbage trade war will break out at any time

When talking about the actions taken in Southeast Asia, Tom szaky, executive officer of Terra cycle*, said: "we are in a period of nationalism, and these prohibitions are part of it."

karmenu Vella, EU Commissioner for environmental affairs, said: "in the long run, this will prove to be positive because we need to focus more on our own recycling capacity."

this is due to the ripples caused by China's rejection of foreign garbage. This change is triggering a wave of new investment in the planning of waste disposal sites, which have made long-term service standards for us and our customers. Since China no longer wants to be the destination of the world's recycled products, the burden falls on everyone

in the future, each * will have more garbage recycling plants and garbage treatment plants, which will no longer be "garbage", but will be an important economic pillar to support each * in the future
