core tip: China forbids it to effectively ensure the smoothness of friction and wear testing machines in normal use. The policy of "foreign garbage" entry not only greatly improves the ability of domestic solid waste enterprises to deal with domestic solid waste, At the same time, it also forces the development of the global solid waste recycling industry and the progress of related technologies to contribute to global ecological security

[China Packaging News] GDB is currently the largest major exporter in the United States that can export four different recycled commodities. For example, waste plastic film, secondary resin, waste metal, waste paper, etc., and it is the supplier of liquid construction materials and industrial coatings that have successfully entered the markets of the United States, Europe, Southeast Asia and other places in the world. GDB is one of the 5000 companies recognized in the United States with annual sales growth of nearly 90million

in the past many years, GDB was very satisfied with exporting a large number of recycled plastics to China for further processing. After China implemented the import ban, the plastic recycling and processing business was transferred to other Southeast Asian countries, but the good times did not last long. After these countries encountered various problems caused by the surge in the amount of waste, they now began to restrict the import of waste

Bagaria pointed out that this fact proves that countries that produce waste plastics need to be responsible for processing and reuse, and the long-term solution is that countries that produce waste must be responsible for this

Bagaria said that U.S. recyclers have long relied on exports to dispose of most of the waste plastics produced in the country, and over reliance on exports has led to the U.S. plastic recycling infrastructure lagging behind the overall demand

he said: "although the plastic industry has been promoting the value of its recycled materials for a long time, exporting a large amount of plastic waste overseas at one stroke sends the wrong message to customers! If plastic waste is a valuable material for other countries, it should also be the case for the United States."

Bagaria said that its company needs the impact of the "sword of the country" action to change its business model, although from the left: Andy Johnston, vice president of Ashland group, Chen Shaohui, general manager of Asia Pacific region of Ashland high performance materials, and Dr. Fred good, vice president of global technology of Ashland high performance materials. This is not an easy thing

bagaria invested more than US $1million to build three new regenerated film processing lines in the New Brunswick plant to prove this

like GDB, far west recycling company in Portland, Oregon (hereinafter referred to as far we strive to improve the innovation mechanism st) also relied mainly on Asia to process these materials in the past. Keithristau, the company's chief executive, said he understood why China imposed a waste import ban after complaining about contaminated materials

after China's "national sword" action, Far West took some measures to improve the quality of recycled plastic bags by reducing the speed of its material recycling equipment, so as to improve the efficiency of the equipment. In addition, the company also hired additional workers to pick out pollutants from the recycling line

these measures brought farwest higher quality plastic bags and were sold to plastic recyclers in the United States. These recyclers have historically been less tolerant of pollution than Asian buyers. Most of the company's plastics were exported to China before China implemented the "national sword" action. Ristau said that all such materials are now digested by the domestic market in the United States

far West processes a wide range of recyclable materials, including about 1250 tons of various resins per month

"I don't blame them at all for this. It's a good thing for me. Although the process was very difficult, we finally succeeded." Keithristau said

before China introduced the import ban, about 90% of Far West's plastic bags were PET bottles. By reducing the speed of the sorting line and increasing the number of sorting workers, about 98% of the company's plastic bags are now PET bottles

like bagaria, ristau believes that the "national sword" action has a positive impact on the U.S. recycling industry

as the largest importer of waste plastics, China has had a far-reaching impact on the world's waste plastics after the introduction of the "waste prohibition order". After the waste plastics from Europe and the United States were rejected by China, they quickly chose to export to the Southeast Asian market. Recently, there was also news that Malaysia, Indonesia and other countries refused to import solid wastes

it is believed that in the later stage, all countries' solid wastes will be returned to their own countries for treatment. At present, EU countries are also actively accelerating the transition to circular economy. The EU will strengthen the implementation of the waste grading system through economic means, with producers responsible for the recycling, classification and treatment of goods, and achieve new binding targets for waste reduction in 2025, 2030 and 2035

it can be seen that China's policy of banning the entry of "foreign garbage" not only greatly improves the capacity of domestic solid waste enterprises to deal with domestic solid waste, but also forces the development of the global solid waste recycling industry and the progress of related technologies, making contributions to global ecological security
