The plastic industry has completed the transformation from high energy consumption to environmental protection

With the awareness of environmental protection deeply rooted in people’s hearts, all walks of life have raised the standards of energy conservation and emission reduction. Plastic material is not only a low-energy and low-pollution product, but also an “image ambassador” of low-carbon and energy-saving in almost all downstream industries. As long as plastic is used, it means that the energy consumption in this field is reduced.

In the plastic industry itself, from raw materials to equipment, energy-saving and low-carbon products are continuously introduced, and the related industries of low-carbon and energy-saving have also become the focus of the rubber and plastic industry, such as solar energy, wind energy, tidal energy, all-electric vehicles and other fields, which are all important markets for plastic application development. For example, for the application of solar energy market, suppliers from raw materials to equipment, such as DuPont, Bayer, BASF, Dow Chemical, Breyer, Shicheng, Xinle Huabao, etc., have launched their own solutions.

The plastic industry has completed the transformation from high energy consumption to environmental protection

In December 2010, at the theme forum “Sustainable Development-Contribution of Plastic Industry”, it was pointed out that plastic is one of the most resource-efficient and widely used materials at present, and it is a renewable and recycled resource. It is necessary to advocate the scientific management of the whole life cycle of plastic, increase the recycling and utilization of plastic, clarify some incorrect understandings of plastic, and promote the healthy development of plastic industry.

The impact of the wide application of plastics on the environment makes the development of the industry face more and more pressure and challenges. How to effectively solve the adverse impact of plastics on the environment, change people’s inherent understanding of plastic “polluting the environment”, and make environmental protection policies such as “plastic bags” forbidden and limited use unnecessary will be the key to the sustainable and stable development of the plastics industry.
