On packaging and circular economy

release date: Source: China paper industry

in the packaging and printing industry, more and more paper enterprises begin to pay attention to circular economy. Circular economy is a circular process of "resources → products → wastes → renewable resources". Circular economy is different from the traditional one-way linear economy. The former is: in the process of flowing from the beginning to the end, consciously make it form an effective or valuable link relationship, while the latter is: at a certain node of the flow, there are unreasonable waste and waste accumulation, and there are disadvantages of mass production, mass consumption and mass waste

with the rapid economic growth and the continuous increase of population, people have found and predicted the contradiction between tension and shortage of material resources, and the development of circular economy has been put on the agenda. People demand themselves; Take "reduction, regeneration and recycling" as the social and economic code of conduct. Namely: improve resource utilization and reduce natural resource consumption. Strengthen the comprehensive utilization of resources and maximize the use of renewable resources, reduce the final disposal of waste, and actively develop the environmental industry

the development of circular economy is a wide range of social systematic projects involving production enterprises, commodity circulation and consumption. Therefore, we should vigorously popularize people's concept of circular economy, provide material and technical support and positive and powerful revolution and support from various fields for the efficient utilization and recycling of resources. In the upstream link of material flow, scientific and reasonable effective circulation can be foreseen. Avoid the situation of waste before utilization and pollution before remediation in the operation of non circular economy

nowadays, technological innovation has attracted much attention, scientific research achievements appear frequently, information dissemination is fast and timely, and economic cooperation is closer. It can be predicted that with the enhancement of people's belief in circular economy and the improvement of their understanding of future development needs, and under the guidance of government departments, they will be able to achieve the expected results in the process of developing circular economy

Recently, at the 2004 annual meeting of the China Circular Economy Development Forum held in Shanghai, the Shanghai declaration was adopted in principle, calling on people's congresses and governments at all levels to strengthen macro guidance for the circular economy, carry out research and Exploration on circular economy laws, regulations and related policies, and start the formulation of circular economy laws, regulations and related policies. At the same time, it was learned from the meeting that the revised draft of the law on the prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste under consideration by the environmental and Resource Protection Committee of the National People's Congress has clearly penetrated the belief of circular economy into the legislative process, and included "the 3D printer Limited to the future will become the fastest-growing plastic printing equipment for over packaging products in the future"

at present, China has a small per capita share of resources, serious environmental pollution and low resource utilization rate. Therefore, it is very important and urgent to vigorously develop the circular economy and speed up the construction of a resource-saving society in accordance with the requirements of the scientific concept of development

among them, the problem of excessive packaging of products has attracted more and more attention from the society, and has become an important object. At the same time, according to the statistical data: waste packaging accounts for 30% of the total waste. Rectifying excessive packaging has become a necessary and effective way to take the sustainable development, protect the environment, and develop a circular economy, which can reduce the consumption of materials and waste resources. At this time, it is necessary to clean the oil delivery valve or replace the pressure stabilizing spring with appropriate stiffness to eliminate pollution

in recent years, relevant departments of the central and local governments have organized special investigations or formulated relevant laws and regulations on the control of excessive packaging of products. For example, the Cleaner Production Promotion Law of the people's Republic of China passed by the National People's Congress in 2001 proposed that enterprises should pack their products reasonably, and imposed preliminary restrictions on excessive packaging. Entrusted by the national development and Reform Commission, the China Packaging Association proposed the "measures for the management of compulsory recycling of packaging materials with a sharp pick-up in the orders of China's plastic extruder enterprises". According to the requirements of Shanghai Economic Commission, Shanghai Association for packaging industry has successively investigated and studied, and written the subject report of "Research on rational utilization of packaging materials"; Further organize forces to carry out special research on excessive packaging, and try to put forward the management plan for moderate packaging of commodities. For example, in the "rules for the inspection of the net content of quantitatively packed goods" drafted by the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China, the volume and weight of product packaging are put forward to limit the measurement standard of "misleading packaging". This shows how much attention the whole country has paid to the control of excessive packaging. It is not only conducive to the deliberation, issuance and implementation of the revised draft of the law on the prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste by the National People's Congress; It will also help to gradually bring commodity packaging into a reasonable and appropriate track and push forward the development of circular economy

the evolution process of this excessive behavior of commodity packaging and the result of serious waste of resources and public hazards have been experienced by most of the economically developed countries in the world, and have attracted widespread attention. After that, special organizations have been organized to discuss it, and policies and measures have been taken to guide and contain it, and certain results have been achieved. It has provided us with a lot of useful experience

"packaging" is the product of commodity economy. With the development of economy, the mode and scale of commodity production, circulation and sales continue to develop and change. As a modern commodity packaging, it is not only the packaging of commodities, but also an important part of commodities. It participates in market competition and even becomes one of the important means to control the market. At the same time, the ever-changing new materials, new technologies and processes continue to provide rich material conditions for the upgrading of packaging

we have noticed that there are many factors related to product quality, health and safety, enterprise management and market competition, such as different commodity performance and characteristics, different levels of commodity consumption and demand, and the consumption of packaging materials and techniques. In addition, packaging is closely related to people's traditional life and customs. When formulating relevant laws and policies, we should take into account and pay attention to moderation, so as to facilitate the practical implementation. In particular, it should be noted that there are still many gaps between the overall level of China's goods and the international advanced level, regardless of packaging materials, manufacturing technology, as well as the level of appearance design. In the face of fierce trade competition, it is necessary to give production enterprises a time and space to catch up

in a word, the field of packaging is very broad, and there is great potential for developing circular economy; It is the eternal goal for a country to develop economic norms. Therefore, with the smallest possible resource consumption and environmental cost, we can obtain the largest possible economic and social benefits. The development of circular economy can be a single link small and medium-sized cycle, or a multi link large cycle; It can also be an auxiliary circulation link for developing circular economy commodities. For example, in order to reduce the consumption of packaging materials, we should rectify "excessive packaging" and advocate "appropriate packaging"; In order to make the best use of packaging, strengthen the recycling of (paper, plastic) packaging; And promote the progress of saving, substituting and environmental protection in the use of packaging materials from the source of packaging production - packaging design. At present, the development of circular economy in the field of packaging is being carried out in an all-round way, with large-scale cooperation among packaging enterprises, packaging and related industries, regions and so on. It is expected that under the guidance and coordination of relevant policies of government departments, we will work together with production, circulation, consumption and other aspects to make achievements in vigorously developing circular economy and building a resource-saving society, and at the same time make contributions to the realization of China's transformation from a big packaging country to a powerful packaging country
