Information
To combat environmental pollution, the European Union has announced a plan to recycle plastic packaging. Under the plan, the European Union will end the use of plastic products, including disposable coffee cups, by 2030. The European Commission said it hoped to improve the recycling efficiency of plastic packaging through the plan and ensure that all plastic packaging could be recycled or reused by 2030. In addition, the EU hopes to create new business opportunities through the plan.
 
 
 
At the same time, the EU will develop new measures to improve the recyclability of plastic products used in the market, increase the use of recycled plastic components, and improve the plastic recycling mechanism to establish a more advanced and standardized garbage sorting and collection system. Because plastic particles can enter the human body through air, water and food, the plan also includes measures to limit the use of plastic particles in cosmetics and detergents.
 
 
 
Statistics show that 85% of beach waste worldwide is plastic waste. As a result, the measures announced by the European Union also include cleaning up 700 kilograms of plastic waste washed ashore every day. At the same time, the EU also plans to reduce the generation of marine litter from the source, and to develop new rules for the port and shipping industry to ensure that the waste generated by ships at sea will not be discharged into the sea, but be transported back to land and handled properly.
 
 
 
The European Commission will provide guidance to member governments and European enterprises on how to minimize plastic waste at source and support related technological innovation. The EU said it would provide an additional 100 million by 2020 to develop more recyclable plastic materials, improve recycling processes and track and remove harmful substances and pollutants from recycled plastics.
 
 
 
Regarding the reasons for launching the plan, the EU said that the extensive use of plastic packaging in Europe has caused alarming waste, and plastic waste is often difficult to decompose, which has brought serious environmental problems. The European Commission pointed out that only 5% of the economic value of plastic packaging materials can be retained in economic activities, and the remaining 95% will disappear after the first use. It wastes 70 billion to 105 billion euros a year in Europe. In addition, the EU produces about 25 million tons of plastic waste annually, but the recovery rate is less than 30%. Non-recyclable plastic waste takes hundreds of years to decompose. As a single commodity market, the EU has the responsibility to participate in solving these problems.
 
 
 
"The EU also hopes to help the region's economy gradually transform into a circular economy through the plan." Yurki Katynin, vice president of the European Commission for employment, growth, investment and competitiveness, said that while protecting the European environment from plastic pollution, the plan could also promote economic growth and technological innovation in the European Union. By changing the design, production, use and recycling of plastic products, new investment and employment schemes can be created, thus adding momentum to the EU's economic growth. Under the plan, the EU will do a good job in recycling, curbing plastic waste, eliminating littering at sea, promoting investment innovation and stimulating global change.
 
 
 
Catherine believes that the plan is also "a good opportunity for European industry to establish a global leading position in new technologies and materials". He added that since there is no complete set of standards and there is no specific plastic recycling market in Europe, it is imperative to establish a market.
 
 
 
According to the European Association of Plastic Manufacturers, the output value of the plastic industry in the EU reached 340 billion euros in 2015, with more than 1.5 million people employed. The EU plans to create 200,000 new jobs in the plastic waste sorting and recycling industry by 2030.
