"Small food boxes are light and heavy, small and large, simple and complex," AQSIQ officials said at a press conference in Beijing to promote the use of environmentally friendly tableware Disposable foam plastic tableware has been widely used in many countries in the world because of its advantages of sanitation, heat preservation and low price. However, it is also restricted by more and more countries because of its disadvantages, such as the natural environment that is difficult to recover and easy to degrade. In January 1999, the State Economic and Trade Commission issued the catalogue of eliminating backward production capacity, technologies and products (Order No. 6), in which item 58 stipulated that disposable foam plastic tableware should be banned nationwide before 2000, and put forward the requirements for replacing products. In 2001, the relevant departments of the State Economic and Trade Commission issued documents one after another, requiring relevant local and units to stop producing and using disposable foam plastic tableware. In June 2001, the State Environmental Protection Administration issued the "technical requirements for certification of environmental labeling products disposable tableware" (hbc1-2001), which stipulates that "tableware that is not foamed, not degraded and easy to recycle" can be used, such as polypropylene products.
There are two sets of national standards for environmental protection tableware. There are some differences between the standards and indicators of the two product categories. The former is mainly used for the setting standards of degradable tableware. Although it is not foamy, it is easy to recycle tableware, such as polypropylene. It is not said that the latter has made it clear that such products can be used (because the world is in use), as long as 75% of the recovery can obtain the environmental mark certification.
Due to the disunity of the government order, the prohibition policy of foaming tableware is not completely consistent in the whole country. For example, the Beijing Municipal People's government announced the sequence rule on March 25, 1999, which is to restrict the sale and use of plastic bags and disposable plastic tableware. It is required to strengthen the recycling. In railway stations, bus stations, airports, capital civilized scenic spots (spots) and hotels, the sale and use of disposable plastic tableware are prohibited, and the penalty amount is up to 5000. Article 84 of the Shanghai municipal government order was issued in June 2000. The principle of "source control, recycling, gradual prohibition and encouragement of substitution" was proposed to manage used plastic lunch boxes. Beijing and Shanghai continue to recycle and use foam plastic tableware. In Shanghai, as long as the fees are paid according to the requirements, the foamed tableware can continue to produce, which is inconsistent with the policy of the State Economic and Trade Commission to ban foam tableware in a certain extent.
At the same time, because the state's ban document on foaming tableware does not have a clear basis for law enforcement and punishment, it brings some difficulties to law enforcement departments.
The fate of tableware manufacturers is that they are controlled again and again by policies in the process of observing and not abiding by the law, in the process of supervision and indulgence.
