Analysis of the steep rise in the consumption of printed paper packaging products in 2016
Analysis of the steep rise in the consumption of printed paper packaging products in 2016 Since this year, the EU market has gradually increased its requirements for cargo packaging. It is not only required to minimize the impractical packaging in the goods under reasonable circumstances, but also required that the materials used for packaging must be biodegradable and recyclable, otherwise they will not be imported. For example, when packaging TV and motorcycle products in China, in addition to the commonly used carton packaging, once molded foam is also used as the packaging to fix and protect the fuselage. This kind of packaging will not work in the EU, because foam products are very difficult to handle and will cause environmental pollution
For a time, the consumption of paper packaging products for printed matter rose sharply.
However, the application of printed paper packaging products is not limited to this. Paper packaging of printed matter has always played an important role in daily life. From refrigerators, televisions and other household appliances to radios and MP3 players, almost all products are printed paper products. Thus, since the implementation of the plastic restriction order on June 1, 2008, the application scope of printed paper products has been expanded. The original plastic packaging shopping bags gradually withdrew from the domestic market and were replaced by printed paper packaging shopping bags. Plastic packaging bags have gradually become the most unpopular products.
We have clearly sent a signal that we need to find more reliable and environmentally friendly materials to replace them. This is undoubtedly a huge business opportunity for the manufacturers of printed products and paper products. In addition, more and more printed paper products have been developed. The "environmental protection chair" made of recycled milk packaging that can be seen everywhere in the World Expo has pushed the application of printed paper packaging products to a new climax.
Printed products and paper products have become candidates again. Because if businesses want to use plastic products for customers, they must charge corresponding fees. For consumers, the original "free" service suddenly requires additional fees, which is difficult to arouse people's interest and virtually reduces their consumption desire. It is not difficult to understand why many businesses replace the original plastic packaging with printed paper packaging, because it can be provided to consumers free of charge.
Compared with plastic products, printed materials and paper products can be recycled, reused, and still degradable even if discarded. The "shock proof" function of printed paper products is also reflected in the egg tray. However, if we trace back upward, the raw material stage of the two products, printed matter and paper products will be questioned. Public data shows that for every 40000 paper lunch boxes, one ton of paper pulp is needed, and more than 300 cubic meters of trees need to be cut down. In addition, the papermaking process will cause water pollution. Will the popularity of printed paper products cause forest reduction and river pollution again?
With the gradual replacement of plastic products by printed paper products, people have higher and higher requirements for printed paper packaging. The original brown yellow cardboard box with the simplest packaging of monochromatic characters can no longer meet the current needs. The development of IT industry also requires printing paper packaging to change to the direction of exquisite and delicate. Such "fragile" eggs can still "retreat" under the protection of the paper tray, and other products will not be damaged.
On the other hand, the wide range application of printed paper products also raises a new question. Is it true that printed paper products are more environmentally friendly than plastic products? It is undeniable that in the later stage of packaging processing, printed paper products undoubtedly have great advantages over plastic products. However, if we trace back upward, the raw material stage of the two products, printed matter and paper products will be questioned. Public data shows that for every 40000 paper lunch boxes, one ton of paper pulp is needed, and more than 300 cubic meters of trees need to be cut down. In addition, the papermaking process will cause water pollution. Will the popularity of printed paper products cause forest reduction and river pollution again?
Like the food chain in nature, every step is linked. If we change one link of the food chain rashly, it will inevitably lead to the imbalance of the whole food chain. If we want to eliminate this imbalance, we need the whole food chain to "act together". Similarly, it is by no means a good way to remove the plastic products in the whole chain and replace them with printed paper products. Afforestation, reduction of paper industry pollution, and recycling of printed paper products, only when each link acts together, can the balance transformation of the entire chain be truly completed.
