Plastic waste sorting

Although every country is trying their best to release its burden, it is inevitable to produce tons of plastic waste. According to the statistics from the British “Guardian”, 1 million plastic bottles are sold every mimute,  and an average of 70000 plastic products are consumed per person per year.

To avoid escalation of the crisis and the worsening of plastic pollution, we must take corresponding measures. While waste plastics serve human beings, their negative impacts should be avoided. Under the demand of scientific treatment and utilization of plastic waste, waste plastic pyrolysis technology came into being. Niutech Pyrolysis has cooperated with advanced waste plastic disposal companies in the world, established a harmless waste plastic pyrolysis disposal and utilization project, realizing large-scale industrial operation.

1.Increase the application management of single-use plastics

The governments of some developed countries have aggressively launched various measures. The Japanese government has finalized the “Plastic Resource Circulation Strategy” that strives to significantly reduce domestic plastic waste emissions. The strategy proposes to reduce the emission of single-use plastics such as food containers by 25% by 2030, and to achieve 100% effective use of all plastic waste, including waste home appliances and auto parts by 2035. The European Parliament has decided to ban disposable plastic products on a large scale from 2021 to control the pollution caused by plastic waste flowing into waterways and fields. Canada has also announced that it will ban the use of most single-use plastic products from 2021, including plastic bags, straws, tableware and stirring sticks.

2. Garbage classification is the basis for improving the efficiency of plastic waste treatment

A long time ago, Germany proposed garbage classification and regarded it as a systematic project. On the streets of Japan, there are almost no trash cans. People usually pack the trash and take it home for sorting. “Waste Disposal Law” in Japan stipulates: throwing away waste indiscriminately can be sentenced to 5 years in prison and fined 10 million yen. In China, Shanghai will take the lead in implementing the domestic waste management regulations in China, and gradually turn waste sorting into a living habit.

3. Improving waste disposal capacity

In Korea, pyrolysis equipment of Niutech has been mechanized in large quantities from the treatment of domestic waste, which has greatly improved the sorting efficiency of waste plastics. The plastic pyrolysis machines operate at full capacity without interruption and will process more than 100,000 tons per year. The quality of waste plastic pyrolysis oil has been improved by using intelligent machines for sorting waste plastic waste. This pyrolysis oil is more widely used and has been used by many internationally renowned petrochemical companies to replace petrochemical energy.

In Denmark, the world’s largest waste plastic pyrolysis project jointly built by several giant companies in the European Union and Hengyu Environmental Protection has been in operation for nearly two years. This project has greatly alleviated the waste plastic disposal crisis in Denmark and several surrounding countries. And people start to sort, discard and place garbage from the time of use and disposal, which greatly strengthens the pressure on the recycling end, and even eliminates the need for sorting. At present, this technology has been jointly recommended by many countries in the European Union and has been used in dozens of countries around the world. It has been actually verified in a waste plastic disposal project.

With the development in recent years, plastic pyrolysis technology has gradually met people’s needs for waste plastics. The discharge during the treatment process has also achieved full compliance. This can be fully reflected in projects in several countries such as the European Union and the United States. However, due to the unbalanced economic development, the problem of waste plastic pollution in many developing countries is still very serious, and they cannot escape the situation of being reduced to waste recycling sites in developed countries. But a series of problems of waste plastics are global problems, affecting our common environment and energy security. Therefore, in order to completely solve the problem of waste plastics, we need our joint efforts.
