According to an article from “Russia Today” on October 21, since China’s ban on waste, many countries around the world have been trapped by the increasing number of waste materials, and Japan, which is under “plastic siege,” is the latest country to report that the recycling industry is “overwhelmed”.  Data recently released by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan shows that among 102 local governments surveyed, about one-quarter reported that plastic waste is accumulating more and more. At least 34 local governments in Japan stated that more and more waste plastics cannot find new export destinations, which has also led to the increasing cost of waste disposal. According to Mr. Saito Kyohei, President of Shinnan Co., Ltd., waste plastics in Japan are already in a state of incomplete disposal, and because of the sharp increase in the amount of waste plastics, the price of incineration of waste plastics has also risen sharply. The cost is 20000-25000 yen, but now it has to rise to 35000-45000 yen, and the entire waste plastic incineration cost has almost doubled. But everything has two sides. We can look at the issue of Japan’s 'plastic siege' from a dialectical perspective. On the one hand, from the perspective of recycling and environmental protection, many places in Japan are in an overwhelmed state, but from the perspective of investment In other words, abundant waste plastic resources are also a favorable business opportunity.   However, unlike investing in Southeast Asia, there are three aspects that need to be reminded of investors in Japan.  Strengthen environmental protection awareness   The environmental protection threshold for investment in Japan is high, and the Southeast Asian investment model of low-end production capacity shifting is obviously not suitable for investment in waste plastics in Japan. On October 11th, Ms. Fukuchi, head of the Resource and Circular Economy Section of the Bureau of Industrial Technology and Environment of Japan, visited the Plastic Recycling Branch of the China Synthetic Resin Supply and Marketing Association and systematically introduced the current status of plastic recycling in Japan and the legal system formed by a recycling society. In particular, it explained in detail the laws and regulations related to the recycling of waste plastics, such as the Container and Packaging Recycling Law.  According to his introduction, in Japan’s waste plastic recycling industry, relevant laws and regulations are sound, and environmental protection requirements are high. The illegal discharge of waste water, waste gas, dust and other environmental pollution behaviors is absolutely not allowed. In an interview before, Mr. Saito Kyohei, the president of Shinnan Co., Ltd., repeatedly emphasized that the factory must be built in a place that does not affect neighbors, and environmentally friendly treatment of industrial waste such as waste water, exhaust gas, dust, etc. should not be secretly discharged, and try not to Disturb the people and avoid being 'complained.' The consequences of complaints are very serious.  Avoid 'getting together' to build factories,   'getting together' to build factories, this is a painful lesson for waste plastic investment in Southeast Asia. Investing in Japan needs to avoid this risk and invest in an orderly manner.   Recently, netizens who intend to invest in waste plastics in Japan have reported that they are worried that Japan will tighten the policies related to land leases and factories, import and export, etc. because of investment 'getting together'.   The netizen’s concerns are reasonable. With questions from netizens, the editor interviewed Kyohei Saito, president of Shinnan Co., Ltd., and veterans of the recycling economy in Japan.   According to Saito Kyohei, there is no news of policy tightening yet. He said that in an industrial park, dozens of companies are building factories at the same time, and there is no big problem. However, 'getting together' is too obvious to be inappropriate.   Mr. Saito said that the disposal of waste plastics in Japan is a difficult problem. Local companies cannot dispose of a large amount of waste plastics. If they go to Japan for recycling and processing waste plastics such as pelletizing, the Japanese government welcomes this.    Japan's resource recycling economy veteran also told the editor that in order to deal with the problem of waste plastic recycling, Japan's Ministry of the Environment recently stated that it will expand domestic waste plastic processing capacity. Chinese investors went to Japan to build factories to make pellets, which solved the sales problem of local waste plastic recycling companies. Objectively, it can also alleviate the social problem of the sharp increase in waste disposal costs in Japan.  According to his introduction, Japan's laws and regulations on the recycling of waste plastics are relatively sound and stable. He said that he has not received any news of policy tightening. Pay close attention to market trends   What product line has the most 'money' scene?   What material is the price right?  How is the market?   Recently, there has been feedback from recycled pellet buyers that the price of pellets in Japan has risen! Is it true? As far as I know, this news is not True and not false.  According to Japanese trader Mr. Hashimoto, the price of PET net flakes has indeed risen slightly, and the prices of PP, PE, PA, PVC and other particles have not received any price increases for the time being.  According to Saito Kyohei, in December of this year, his factory will be transformed into PET film. He is very optimistic about the market prospect of A film. He believes that the demand for A-films in China, Europe, America, and Japan is increasing. It is also understood that Zhejiang Dafa, which is quite powerful in China, purchases waste materials (Coke bottles, etc.) in Japan at a high price. The purchase price is 3-10 yuan more than that of local companies. It plans to open a second factory. .   Various signs indicate that the product line is stratifying. PET net flakes have become the new favorite of investment, with increased demand and prices; other PP, PE and other particles, conventional products, have stable demand and stable prices.
