The hottest plastic recycling industry in Hainan i

  • Detail

Hainan plastic recycling industry is struggling to survive

fresh plastic raw materials can be produced into mineral water bottles; After recycling, it can be produced into agricultural film; After being recycled, it can also be produced into plastic barrels; After being recycled again, it can still be produced into seedling cups or Suns... Recycling is the biggest advantage of plastic as a synthetic material. It is particularly important today that we must carefully select when purchasing experimental machines, and resources are becoming increasingly scarce. However, due to various restrictions, the plastic recycling industry in Hainan Province is in an awkward situation of struggling to survive

worry about "green protection"

located in Qionghua village, Liuliu Town, Haikou mayor, Haikou, Hainan Province, Haikou green protection renewable resources Co., Ltd. is piled up with mineral water bottle fragments waiting to be recycled. In the workshop, we can see that these plastic bottles broken by the waste recycling point can be directly entered into the granulation workshop to produce plastic particles for reprocessing in the future after being washed by the production line equipment and then disinfected at high temperature

"these are good plastic production raw materials, but because they are produced from waste plastics, they can no longer be used to manufacture mineral water bottles and other edible plastic products." Fan min, the executive director of the company, told that these mineral water bottles can be recycled into plastic products such as agricultural mulch films and pesticide bottles

Founded in 2012, Haikou Lvbao renewable resources Co., Ltd. is the Hainan sorting center of the second batch of national renewable resources construction system of the Ministry of Commerce, mainly engaged in the recycling and processing of all kinds of waste plastic bottles, pesticide bottles, waste fishing, waste paper and other waste materials. The company has 20 recycling processing sites in Haikou, 10 in Sanya, 22 in other cities and counties, and a total of 52 processing sites in the province. In the whole year, about 10000 tons of waste pesticide bottles, fishing and other plastics can be recycled and processed, accounting for 30% of the waste plastic recycling market share in Hainan

"mineral water bottle recycling is one of the company's main industries, with more than 8000 tons of recycled bottles per year." Fan Min said that at present, the whole island produces about 24000 tons of waste plastic bottles a year, and their company recycles more than one third. The loss rate of this kind of plastic bottle in the reproduction process is only about 3%, so the resource regeneration of this piece can create great benefits for the society

as the vice president unit of Haikou renewable resources recycling association, although the green protection company has made a lot of achievements in the recycling of renewable resources in Hainan Province, it also faces many difficulties

"regardless of the rise in raw materials and labor costs, land use is the most practical difficulty for enterprises like ours." Talking about the situation of the enterprise, fan Min said that plastic recycling needs a lot of land because of the need to stack waste products, and the green protection company is the rented collective land circulation land in Qionghua village. Although the lease term is 20 years. 3. The experiment that needs to be done in a high temperature environment has only passed for 9 years, with the development of urban planning, the haixiu road section where the company is located is likely to face demolition and other problems in the future, At present, the relocation of renewable resource recycling enterprises is being carried out in the urban area of our city. And our city and even Hainan Province have not planned this kind of enterprise land, so once faced with demolition in the future, where will the enterprise go

"Mingda" dilemma

in Huangliu Town, Ledong, Hainan, in a waste plastic dump of Ledong Mingda plastic products Co., Ltd., mineral water bottles as high as a hill are hard to count. Panmingming, the general manager of the company, told that the recycling price of old mineral water bottles is generally 2-3 per cent. Because there are no workers, millions of bottles have been piled up in this site alone

"last year, the workers' wages were threeorfour thousand yuan a month. This year, the workers proposed to increase another twohundred yuan, otherwise they would not come home after the Spring Festival." Pan Mingming reluctantly said that in recent years, wages have been rising, and the profits of recycled plastics industry are not high. In addition, the purchase price of waste products is also rising, so the factory temporarily stopped production because no one works

It is an indisputable fact that the purchase price of waste products has risen. Taking the recycling of agricultural mulch film as an example, the recycling price this year is 2000 yuan per ton, while it was only about 1000 yuan per ton three or four years ago. In addition, in recent years, the rental price has been rising, and plastic stacking requires a lot of space, which has virtually increased the operating costs of enterprises

Mingda company was established in 2006, specializing in the recycling and processing of agricultural greenhouse film, mulch film, fertilizer woven bags, sprinkler belts, etc., with an annual recycling and processing of about 5000 tons. The company has three recycling processing sites and five production lines in Ledong alone, and the recycled waste plastics account for more than 50% of the whole Ledong County. The finished plastic particles after recycling and processing are called "second materials" by the company's employees, some for their own use and some for sale in the industry. The factory set up by the company in Sanya, Hainan, specializes in the production of "pansu" brand mulching film and sprinkler irrigation belt, with an annual production capacity of 2000 tons, which is specially supplied to farmers in Sanya, Ledong and other places

"our industry also faces a common problem - venue." Pan Mingming said that his plant in Sanya is facing demolition and relocation, and it will be relocated after just a few years of operation. It is difficult to recover the investment, and now it is also very troublesome to find a new production site to build a plant. Recently, he is looking for suitable land to build a factory in Ledong. According to the development plan of Mingda company, in addition to the recycling processing points and production lines in Ledong, Sanya, Ding'an and Lingshui, it is also planned to set up recycling processing points in other cities and counties

"land is the biggest problem in building factories." Pan Mingming explained that first of all, the renewable resources recovery industry needs large sites, as well as emission standards. At present, there is no corresponding planned land, so land is a shackle that restricts the development of the renewable resources industry. 5 Cement mortar vibrating table lock

the pain of waste

plastic products are the main culprit of "white pollution". Experimental data show that polyethylene (PE), commonly used in plastics, decomposes in nature for 200 to 300 years. In this process, the pollution is serious. At the same time, the pollution caused by decomposition to soil, environment and groundwater system cannot be systematically solved by modern research and scientific and technological means

Zhou Hongxun, Secretary General of Hainan Plastic Industry Association, said, "when talking about agricultural pollution, we first think of the old holes of pesticides, fertilizers and sewage. In recent years, agricultural pollution has appeared a new face - residual plastic film. Hainan is a large tropical agricultural province, and modern agriculture has a great demand for plastic products such as plastic film."

according to incomplete statistics of the Agricultural Department of Hainan Province, in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, the cultivation area of film mulching in Hainan Province was 1million mu, 1.2 million mu, 2.24 million mu, 2.4 million mu and 3 million mu respectively. The agricultural film in Hainan is mostly black plastic film, with a thickness of 0.02 mm to 0.022 mm. It requires about 14.5 kg per mu of land. According to the planting area of 3 million mu of melons and vegetables in 2013, it requires about 40000 tons of black film. Due to the high recycling cost and small output value, only 30% - 50% of these mulching films are recycled, and most of them are still left in the land. Some experts pointed out that the harm of residual plastic film is more serious than that of plastic bags in cities. It cannot be degraded, which increases the air permeability of the soil. Coupled with the soil hardening caused by chemical fertilizers, the cultivated land is facing serious degradation and decline

according to the data obtained from the provincial Plastic Industry Association, there are currently more than 100 plastic recycling and processing enterprises in Hainan Province, with an annual recycling of nearly 40000 tons. However, although the number of enterprises and personnel engaged in recycling and processing of recycled plastics is huge, it is unstable, mainly self-employed, supplemented by the unemployed at the bottom

correspondingly, Hainan province still has a large number of waste plastic products that are not recycled every year, including about 15000 tons of agricultural mulch film and 5000 tons of pesticide bottles. In addition, there are sprinkler belts, various fertilizer bags, various fruit bags, various seedling bags, various seedling plastic plates, as well as various industries, municipal buildings, medicine and medical treatment, electronic communications, food About 50000 tons of household plastic products are discarded in tourism and other industries and people's daily life

turning waste into treasure

recycling is the greatest advantage of plastic as a synthetic material. Recycling has opened up a path of reduction, harmlessness and recycling for the treatment of waste plastic waste. As a measure to save energy and protect the environment, the recycling of waste plastics is widely valued by countries all over the world. In recent years, countries around the world are actively carrying out research on the recycling of waste plastics, and the recycling rate of waste plastics in Western European countries has reached 90%

"as long as these waste plastics are recycled properly, they can turn waste into treasure." In the interview, many heads of plastic recycling enterprises said that this is a matter of benefit to the country and the people, and the whole society should pay attention to it. Pan Mingming, the general manager of Ledong Mingda company, often comes from Mian with the words "pick up the wasteland of heaven and earth, and clean the face of mountains and rivers"

panmingming told that their market survey found that Sanya currently has a planting area of about 170000 mu of melons and vegetables, a planting area of about 50000 mu of flowers, and needs about 10000 tons of various agricultural plastic products every year. On the one hand, their company recycles the existing waste plastics in the market, on the other hand, it reprocesses them and supplies them to the market after "turning waste into treasure", which has well alleviated the market demand

the plastic processing industry has made great contributions to resource recycling and environmental protection, and is an important part of the environmental protection industry. Relevant people suggested that Hainan Province could speed up the establishment of waste plastic film recycling system, and gradually form a waste plastic film recycling network with three links of farmers' picking - point recycling - enterprise processing, which support and constrain each other. In addition, we can support the establishment of a number of waste agricultural plastic products recycling and processing enterprises, and drive the recycling, processing and reuse of waste plastic films and waste plastic products in the surrounding areas; Establish waste plastic film recycling stations (points) in villages and towns to facilitate farmers to sell; Carry out the "old for new" work in combination with film subsidies


according to the speed of developing tropical efficient facility agriculture in Hainan Province, many figures in this paper will increase every year. The use of agricultural film is increasing sharply every year, and the residual film in the farmland is also increasing. The first meeting of the Standing Committee of the Fifth National People's Congress of Hainan Province has considered and passed the "Regulations of Hainan Province on the quality and safety of agricultural products", which stipulates that agricultural producers should remove and recycle agricultural films and other packaging materials of agricultural inputs in a timely manner. However, it is undeniable that because of recycling, customers are not recommended to buy it, which is difficult and time-consuming. There is still a long way to go to completely recycle agricultural mulch film, and farmers and recycling and processing enterprises need to increase a lot of work

fortunately, just a few days ago, Hainan Provincial People's Congress has cooperated with the provincial agricultural department to conduct in-depth research on the province's recycled plastic industry, and is ready to launch recycling subsidies specifically for agricultural film and plastic pesticide bottles
