As the concept of environmental protection is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, the environmental problems brought about by plastic packaging bags have long been paid attention to by people all over the world. Many countries are advocating reducing the amount of plastic packaging bags or switching to degradable plastic packaging bags, and have achieved certain results. It is undeniable that although plastic products bring certain environmental problems, the convenience they bring to people cannot be ignored. As far as the current situation is concerned, the use of non-degradable plastic packaging bags cannot be completely banned in a short period of time, so plastic bags will inevitably develop in the field of environmental protection. Now let’s take a look at the overall situation of the development of plastic products in the direction of environmental protection.
At present, in the production process of plastic packaging bags in China, the research and use of environmentally friendly plastic products has reached a certain scale, and it is constantly changing and progressing in the direction of professional environmental protection. In the process of producing plastic packaging bags, by adding a certain amount of starch, modified powder, bio degradants and other ingredients, it can be naturally degraded, and by reducing the stability of plastic packaging bags, it can be used in Self-degradation in the natural environment. At present, there are many plastic bag manufacturers in the research and development or production of environmentally friendly plastic bags. Experiments have shown that in the general natural environment, degradable plastic bags will not cause any damage to the natural environment, and can decompose on their own after a period of time.
Secondly, recyclable plastic packaging bags also have relatively good development prospects. The environmental advantages of secondary utilization of plastic bags are mainly reflected in the saving of materials, less waste, easy recycling and energy saving. Recyclable environmentally friendly plastic bags should comply with the basic principles of harmless, non-polluting and renewable utilization. Although pure natural environmental protection materials do not have any pollution, the cost is high, so the scope of use has certain limitations. It can be seen that composite environmental protection materials will become the mainstream development trend of environmental protection plastic products in the future.
In short, plastic packaging products have many advantages and still occupy a very important position in today’s packaging industry. According to the current development of the industry, the development of environmental protection is an inevitable trend in the field of plastic bags.
