According to May 7, 2019, Russian Minister of Natural Resources and Ecology, Kobelkin, recently said that the Ministry was preparing to implement a ban on the sale of disposable plastic tableware.
According to reports, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev pointed out that Russia's ban on disposable plastic tableware may be considered at the legislative level in the future. He also believed that Russia would begin to discuss the ban on the use of plastic.
"Russia's Ministry of Natural Resources supports working with countries to reduce environmental pollution," Kobelkin said. We support the global trend to reduce the use of plastics. I believe we are working in this direction. Many large retail networks have supported us. We are preparing for the limitation order and need time to recognize and accept it."
It is reported that the European Union has passed a bill to ban the sale of disposable plastic tableware from 2021.
In addition, on April 8, 2019, the National Development and Reform Commission issued the announcement of the Guiding Catalogue for Industrial Structure Adjustment (2019 edition, draft for comments). In this phase-out category, for the first time, it mentioned that disposable foam plastic tableware, agricultural film and plastic beads would be eliminated.
At the same time, in recent years, many domestic policies are gradually implementing this point. Hainan Province took the lead in issuing a "plastic ban", prohibiting disposable non-degradable plastics.
Since 1909, plastics have gone through more than 100 years of development. Plastic products have been everywhere, everywhere. Plastics have been closely related to human life. But how to use plastic better, safer, more environmentally friendly and greener has been paid more and more attention by more and more countries and people.
Non-degradable disposable plastic tableware and other products, from the current trends at home and abroad, will inevitably encounter resistance from the relevant policies of many countries in the future. Relevant manufacturers should be aware of the changes in the current environment in a timely manner, upgrade existing production equipment, carry out transformation and upgrading of enterprises, and avoid the operation and manufacturing of enterprises because of policy-related factors. Make unnecessary losses.
