The hottest waste paper recycling trend

The trend of waste paper recycling (I)

in recent years, the gap between the world's raw pulp output and the output of paper and paperboard has become larger and larger. The difference is mainly supplemented by waste paper, which will account for 50% - 60% of the raw materials of paper fibers. The highest recycling rate of waste paper is Hong Kong, Germany, South Korea, Japan, China, and Taiwan in the stainless steel standard, of which the recycling rate of waste paper in Hong Kong and Germany is as high as 88.2% and 71% respectively. Mexico, Taiwan, China and South Korea have the highest utilization rate of waste paper. Papermaking in Mexico absolutely depends on waste paper raw materials. It is estimated that recycling 1 ton of office waste paper can produce 0.8 tons of recycled paper, saving 4 cubic meters of wood. If half of the office paper used in the world today is recycled, 75% of the demand for new paper can be met, equivalent to 8million hectares of forest protected from deforestation

United States

the United States is the world's largest producer of pulp and paperboard and a major consumer. The United States strongly advocates recycling waste paper and promotes enterprises to use waste paper to produce cardboard and packaging materials. For example, the stone container company of the United States produces cordeck corrugated plates with waste paper for the packaging and transportation of goods; The e-cubes packaging material produced by r-tech company is made of recycled waste paper. It can pack fragile items after adding fillers. Compared with foamed plastics, it is more convenient and fast in filling. It can fill goods of any shape, recycled, biodegradable and non-toxic

in 2000, the output of paper products in the United States was 85.495 million tons, and the consumption was 92.355 million tons, accounting for 28.6% of the world consumption. The recycling volume of waste paper is 44.938 million tons, with a recovery rate of 48.7%. In the same year, 35.908 million tons were recycled, and the net export volume is 9.03 million tons, accounting for 20% of the total recycling volume. The waste paper of the United States is mainly exported to neighboring countries Canada, Mexico and South Korea and China in East Asia. OCC is the main waste paper in the United States, accounting for almost half, followed by ONP. The recovery rates of OCC and ONP have reached 70.1% and 68.9% (1999). It is unlikely to improve the metal material tensile testing machine, which is mainly suitable for plastic plates, pipes and profiles. On the contrary, a kind of mixed waste paper (RMP) has not been fully utilized at present, and the recovery rate is only about 20%, which needs to be further recycled. For future development, the United States proposed that the utilization rate of waste paper should reach 50% of the paper output. Among them, paper reaches 60% - 70%; If the printing paper reaches 4, the measurement and control function of the experimental machine can be greatly improved by 0% - 50%; Toilet paper should be made entirely of waste paper

in December 2003, the report released by the forest service of the United States Department of agriculture predicted that the supply of recycled paper in the United States is expected to increase year by year from 2010 to 2050. The predicted figures are as follows: the supply in 2010 was 156.2 million tons, including 105.6 million tons of wood pulp for papermaking and 50.6 million tons of recycled paper. In 2020, it was 178 million tons, including 120.9 million tons of wood pulp and 57.1 million tons of paper. In 2030, it was 198.2 million tons, including 134.9 million tons of wood pulp and 63.3 million tons of recycled paper


although Germany lacks fiber resources and imports a large amount of commercial pulp and paper every year, due to large consumption and high waste paper recovery rate, a large number of waste paper are exported every year. Germany is the second largest exporter of waste paper in the world. In 2000, the output of waste paper and paperboard was 18.182 million tons and the consumption was 19.112 million tons; The recovery of waste paper is 13.57 million tons, with a recovery rate of 71%; In the same year, the net export of waste paper was 2.578 million tons, accounting for 19% of the total recovery, which is very close to the level of the United States

under the jurisdiction of EU competition regulations, the German two-way system recycling Organization (DSD) will be forced to have excellent light stability and open the bidding rules of packaging waste recycling contracts to EU countries. DSD is composed of 414 packaging paper collection, classification and recycling operators in Germany, with an annual collection of 1.5 million tons of waste paper, including corrugated boxes. The organization gives waste paper collectors an annual subsidy of 50million euros ($53million), which is paid by the German national green dot marking system in the annual income. (to be continued)
