The Australian government has released “the National Plastics Plan 2021”. It is another national-level action plan to address the growing plastic problem, following a series of EU and US policy actions to combat plastic pollution.
EU policy actions include the "An European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy" published in January 2018, the "European Green Deal" published in December 2019, and the "Circular Economy Action Plan" published in March 2020.
The US policy actions include the “National Framework for Advancing the U.S. Recycling System”publised by United States Environmental Protection Agency in November 2019; the national recycling goal of 50% overall U.S. recycling by 2030, announced in November 2020, and the U.S. Plastics Pact, signed in August 2020 by The Recycling Partnership with support from the WWF (World Wildlife Fund). They have officially joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's (EMF) Circularity 2.0 network of plastics conventions.
Looking at the plastic strategies and action plans of these countries, we can see a common understanding and actions. Plastic pollution has become a global public hazard, the essence of which is the large-scale encroachment of plastic on the environment, and there is no time to lose in combating plastic pollution.
These countries and regions have followed a "ban-prevention-governance" course of action. The so-called "ban" is to immediately ban those plastic applications that have been proven to be more harmful than beneficial. Such as some disposable straws, plastic bags, disposable plastic packaging, etc.. They are widely used, but some of these plastic products have no reasonable disposal methods, even if the deposit and other means can not be effectively recycled, so the ban on the use of these products become inevitable.
The so-called "prevention" is to prevent waste plastics from entering the environment. Many countries are actively evaluating some methods to ensure their feasibility and effectiveness, avoiding to introduce other problems while solving plastic waste problem.
The so-called "clean" is to clean up the plastic pollution has entered the environment. The current plastic recycling technology is not a good solution to the problem of plastic pollution, and new technologies need to be developed.
Pyrolysis technology has become an emerging waste plastics treatment method and aroused wide concern. By thoroughly decomposition, the polymer in waste plastic can be cracking into small molecular or monomers, converting waste plastic to fuel.
As a professional waste plastic pyrolysis plant manufacturer, Niutech is committed to research and develop more cutting-edge waste plastic treatment technologies. The industrial continuous pyrolysis technology and equipment has the advantages of wide material adaptability to handle complex components, low energy consumption and low cost, excellent treatment effect and good product quality.
Niutech has successfully cooperated with many countries and projects such as China, Germany, America, Britain, Denmark, Brazil, Hungary, Turkey, Estonia, Iraq, India, Thailand, etc., and are committed to the promotion and application of global harmless, reduction and resourceization of waste plastics.
