The latest development of the EU Single-use Plastics Directive (SUP)
On June 12, 2019, the Official Journal of the European Union issued Directive (EC) 2019/904 to restrict single-use plastics and products to prevent and reduce the impact of certain plastic products on the environment and human health. The directive directly affects member states and will take effect on July 1, 2019.
The EU is at the forefront of the world in the treatment of plastic pollution. Up to now, among all EU countries, 23 countries (France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, Sweden, Denmark,Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Greece, the Czech republic, Croatia, Malta, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria) have legislated or taken actions for the single-use plastics directive (SUP, Single Use Plastics), but there are still Slovakia, Slovenia, Cyprus, Four countries in Poland postponed the implementation of the directive.
The ban will apply to products made entirely or partly of plastic, which are usually single-use products, or products that are only used for a short period of time before being discarded. These are plastic tableware-forks, knives, spoons, plates, straws, as well as earplugs, beverage stirrers, cup lids ,plastic sticks with balloons, food storage containers made of expanded polystyrene, cups and made of oxidatively degradable plastic product.
According to data from the European Commission, plastics account for more than 80% of marine pollution waste. The EU plans to phase out the production of non-recyclable plastics. From 2025, only bottle caps that are permanently fixed to the container can enter the market. The production of plastic bottles needs to use at least 25% of recycled materials and increase their recycling and reuse levels to 77%. The current recycling rate of PET bottles is only 43%.
Sugarcane bagasse molded pulp paper is a material that can replace some plastic Products
With the implementation of the plastic restriction, the use and implementation of environmentally friendly materials has received more and more attention.
The disposable products produced by sugarcane bagasse molded pulp paper as raw materials are completely degradable and compostable, and will not cause any pressure on the environment.
In the future, sugarcane bagasse molded pulp paper plates, sugarcane bagasse tableware. Sugarcane bagasse cup lids, can completely replace disposable plastic tableware, and take an important role in protecting the environment
