The hottest environment-friendly tableware Rio Tin

Green tableware Rio Tinto's rising space (I)


classification of green tableware

disposable tableware is divided into three categories according to the source of raw materials, production process, degradation method and recycling level: Biodegradable: such as paper products (including pulp molding and paperboard coating), edible powder molding, plant fiber molding, etc; Photo/biodegradable: photo/biodegradable plastic (non foaming); Materials easy to be recycled: such as polypropylene (PP), high impact polystyrene (HIPS), biaxial tensile polystyrene sheet products, composite products filled with polypropylene with high filling amount of natural inorganic minerals, etc

environmentally friendly tableware is not equal to degradable tableware

according to relevant national standards, environmentally friendly tableware must meet three indicators: easy to recycle, easy to dispose of when not in use, and easy to be absorbed by the environment. That is, environmental friendly tableware includes three types: easy to recycle, easy to dispose or easy to absorb (degrade), and degradable tableware is only one of them. Degradation is only a supplement to recycling, that is, when a certain packaging material is used to make it difficult to recycle after the equipment has a longer service life, or the recycling value is very low, it can be considered to use degradation packaging

degradable tableware does not mean that there is no need to recycle when the tableware is compressed.

the use of degradable tableware does not mean that there is no need for recycling management. Instead, strengthen recycling management and recycling, strengthen environmental protection awareness and resource awareness, and gradually establish and improve the recycling and treatment system of disposable tableware, so as to prevent new pollution


environmental protection experts put forward the following basic elements for the healthy development of the new tableware industry according to the characteristics of China's fast food industry and fast food containers, the principles of environmental pollution control and the basic laws of the market economy

1. localization and diversification of raw material sources. In terms of raw material selection, we should break the terminology requirements of standard classification, and select scientifically according to performance, price, process, equipment and product use. We should neither be arrogant nor complacent in terms of formula

2. product quality standardization. Enterprises will gradually return to the track of scientific competition. At the same time, it is hoped that the enterprise will manufacture products in strict accordance with the new standards and conduct strict and scientific testing to ensure human health and safety and effectively solve the environmental pollution caused by foaming tableware

3. the production process is continuously automated to avoid damage to the tested product due to out of control environmental conditions. In order to make fast food packaging products occupy the market, tableware manufacturers must consider the continuous automation of production process and the effective utilization of leftover materials

4. marketization of product marketing. According to the principle of formulating national standards, all products shall strive to be scientific and fair in terms of standards without any tendency. All products that can meet the requirements of the standards can be allowed to enter the market. Government management departments at all levels shall not forcibly intervene in the sales of products that meet the requirements in any form, nor engage in industrial protection and local protection. Products that do not meet the requirements, especially foam tableware and enterprises, shall be resolutely attacked. Only quality and quantity products can guarantee the interests of consumers and ultimately be responsible for the environment

5. industrialization of recycling. Through the comprehensive analysis of environmental impact, technical status and economic benefits, it can be concluded that the products with less resource consumption and light weight should be selected first. For the products after use, the classified recycling method should be selected first. If the recycling value of such valves is too low, incineration can be used, and finally landfill can be used

6. product degradation and practicality. Degradable tableware has its specific application field. It can not completely replace the original tableware that is not degradable or easy to degrade, nor can it be regarded as a good way to solve pollution. It is only a supplement to recycling, that is, it is meaningful when the recycling value of a tableware is zero or the environmental effect of the whole life cycle is suitable for degradation

environmental protection policies should be continuous and legalized. The state and relevant departments should resolutely implement the policies and regulations on the pollution control of disposable fast food tableware, scientifically and correctly guide consumption, let the people establish the consumption concept of "less use, recycling, replacement and degradation", start from everyone and around them, and vigorously promote the use of hands to save resources and beautify the environment.
