In July 2017, China announced that it would stop importing 24 types of foreign waste, including waste plastics, paper, and waste slag, and it will be officially implemented on January 1, 2018. By comparing the data of 2016-2018, Sohu Digital Way found that China's actions on foreign garbage SayNo have changed the global garbage disposal pattern. After experiencing 'panic and helplessProhibition 1 Plastic waste from the United States has been reduced by 90%. China’s claim that it refuses to accept foreign waste is by no means a joke, and its attitude is staggeringly firm. From 2008 to 2017, China has always been the largest garbage importer in the United States. In the first quarter of 2017 alone, China imported 224.2 thousand plastic waste from the United States (excluding plastic waste transferred from Hong Kong, China to the Mainland). In the first quarter, this data 'suddenly dropped' to approximately 15.12 thousand, a decrease of 93.3%. Hong Kong, China has always been an important transfer station for foreign waste entering the mainland. In 2017, 1.867 million plastic waste was transported to Hong Kong for a total of 6.635 million US dollars, of which 5.407 million US plastic waste was transferred to the mainland. In the first quarter of 2017, the number of plastic waste shipped from the United States to Hong Kong was 156,000, compared with 30,200 in the first quarter of 2018, a decrease of 80.7%. Not only the United States, but also the plastic waste exported to China from Japan, the United Kingdom, Thailand, and Mexico also suffered this kind of 'cliff-cutting' decline. The declines in the United Kingdom and Japan reached 97.2% and 96.5%, respectively. China no longer accepts plastic waste from these countries. It is like a 'storm' that is reshaping the global waste management landscape. Those countries that originally dumped rubbish to China easily have difficulty adapting to news such as 'the U.S. waste recycling plant has piled up rubbishIn the newspapers, Rongsheng Co., Ltd., which exports waste plastics, filed for bankruptcy in March 2018 due to its inability to carry out business. The knock-on effect after China’s Say No on plastic waste is far more than this. Even Starbucks has promised to stop using plastic straws in 28,000 stores worldwide by 2020. The EU proposes to completely ban plastic products such as disposable knives and forks, plates, and straws. Switch to more environmentally friendly materials and propose to increase the recycling rate of disposable plastic beverage bottles to 90% by 2025. However, “far away cannot quench the near thirst.” Although these countries have set out to formulate long-term plastic waste disposal plans, how can the immediate difficulties be overcome? After China rejects plastic waste, Southeast Asia took over the rescue and sent the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan to China. Take the “big households” who export plastic waste as an example. Their response measures are all aimed at Southeast Asia without exception. India, which is located in South Asia, “has also contributed” to this. Compared with the first quarter of 2016, the plastic waste exported from the United States to Malaysia and Thailand in the first quarter of 2017 increased by 31.6% and 4.2%, respectively. In the first quarter of 2018, the plastic waste exported from the United States to the two places increased by 5.2 times and 26.2 times year-on-year. Plastic waste in Vietnam has doubled year-on-year. Britain and Japan also turned their attention to Southeast Asia. In the first quarter of 2018, plastic waste exported from Japan to Thailand was 14.8 times longer than the same period last year, and plastic waste exported to Malaysia from the United Kingdom and Japan was 2.8 times and 4.8 times longer than the same period last year. Not only that, the UK has also 'targeted' Indonesia. In the first quarter of 2018, plastic waste exported from the UK to Indonesia increased by 54.2% year-on-year, much higher than the 4.3% year-on-year increase in the first quarter of 2017. You should know that Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam were previously one of the main countries exporting waste to China. In 2017, the plastic waste exported from these four countries to China accounted for 14.3% of China’s total plastic waste imports. Now they are receiving from China. Passed the 'Global Waste Treatment Plant' hat. China has already strongly refused to accept foreign garbage, and the impact has been significant. This has also sounded the alarm on a global scale. It is only a stopgap measure to look for other countries and regions to take over the role of China. A more sustainable method is to reduce the use of plastics, increase the recycling rate of plastic waste, and refine the treatment rate. Acrylic lens processing plant
