Four problems of the hottest disposable foaming ta

Four major problems of disposable foaming tableware

the first is product standards. The particularity of disposable foamed plastic tableware lies in the production process of foaming and the use of flammable and explosive foaming agents. In the notice, the executive standard of disposable foamed plastic tableware is the hygienic standard for polystyrene molded products for food packaging (gb9689), which only adopts the general standard requirements from the perspective that the quality of polystyrene accounts for 50% of the world, without explaining the special process of foaming, There are no requirements for the physical and mechanical properties and practical properties of disposable foamed plastic tableware. The notice only stipulates the additives, products and labels of disposable foamed plastic tableware, and does not require raw materials, especially the standards that recycled raw materials should not be used in food packaging

the second is production requirements and licensing. The difference between disposable foamed plastic tableware and disposable non foamed plastic tableware lies in the use of additives and production technology in the production process. At present, China implements a market access system for disposable non foaming plastic tableware, which regulates and manages seven aspects: quality and safety management responsibilities, enterprise environment and site requirements, production resource provision, procurement quality control, production process control, product quality inspection and production safety protection. While it is also used for food packaging, the notice of disposable foaming plastic tableware does not require the implementation of production license, Whether from enterprise management or market supervision, disposable foamed plastic tableware may cause market chaos

the third is the relationship between local regulations and the notice. Since the elimination of disposable foamed plastic tableware by order No. 6 issued by the former State Economic and Trade Commission in 1999, local regulations have been issued in many places to eliminate the product. As of the implementation of order No. 21 of the national development and Reform Commission, there are still many places whose elimination policies have not been abolished. According to the provisions of the legislative law, if the provisions on the same matter between local regulations and departmental rules are inconsistent, and it is impossible to determine how to apply them, the State Council shall put forward opinions. If the State Council believes that local regulations should be applied, it shall decide to apply the provisions of local regulations in that place; If it believes that departmental rules should be applied, it shall be submitted to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress for a ruling; In case of any inconsistency between departmental rules or between departmental rules and local government rules on the same matter, the State Council shall make a ruling. The notice requires that all localities should report the problems in the implementation of this notice in time. According to the national standards and relevant requirements such as gb/t10801.1 (2) 002 molded polystyrene foam for thermal insulation, gb/t10801.2 (2) 002 extruded polystyrene foam for thermal insulation, gb/t20974 (2) 014 rigid phenolic foam products for thermal insulation, local governments and superior competent departments, It did not explain how to deal with inconsistencies with local regulations. In addition, how to deal with the illegal production, sale and use of disposable foamed plastic tableware before the issuance of order 21 is not explained in the notice

the fourth is recycling. The Ministry of commerce is responsible for the recycling of disposable foamed plastic tableware, which is emphasized in the interpretation of order No. 21 of the national development and Reform Commission. According to the division of responsibilities of departments, the Ministry of commerce is responsible for the recycling of disposable foamed plastic tableware. Because of its light weight, low value, high transportation cost and difficult cleaning, it is difficult to recycle disposable foamed plastic tableware, which is difficult to adjust spontaneously by market mechanism, Sometimes, non-ferrous metals such as aluminum alloy and special metal bubble plastic tableware are also used to reduce the amount of one-time delivery, which may pollute the environment again. However, the recycling issue is not involved in the notice

in short, the release of the notice shows that disposable foamed plastic tableware can be legally used for food packaging, but at present, there are still products with the global new energy vehicle boom and the lack of quality standards, and the relevant national requirements are significantly relaxed compared with non foamed disposable plastic tableware, which may cause many problems such as improper market competition. I hope the relevant departments can solve the above problems as soon as possible for the healthy development of the industry
