Introduction to the environmental protection of packaging and waste in Japan

recently, the packaging and environmental protection expert group composed of the executive director of the Japan Packaging Technology Association and the director of affairs, Akihiko Sakamoto, and the Secretary and member of the Bureau of affairs, Takeo zemura, told them that I was very sorry to visit and exchange with Shanghai packaging and related industries on the theme of packaging, packaging waste and environmental protection

Mr. Kojima, chairman of the Japan packaging branch and head of the Toyo Canning (Zhuzhou) business planning department, first introduced the "joint planning plan for packaging and packaging waste classification and environmental filtration packaging standards" (Draft) initially formulated by Japan. It is intended to invite international peers to discuss it at the international packaging exhibition in October 2006 to improve it and promote it to a wider world

It is reported that the current recycling of packaging waste in Japan is of great reference value. For example, in 2004, the output of glass bottles in Japan was 1500 (thousand tons), the utilization reached 1480 (thousand tons), and the utilization rate reached 90%. The output of metal cans is 800 (each ton), and the resource utilization rate is 87.1%. PET bottle production is 490 (thousand tons), and the utilization rate is 63%. Beer bottles produced 15.91 billion cans, with a utilization rate of 86.1%. One of its important experiences is that in the recycling operation of various packaging containers, most of them have established special "promotion and promotion" organizations, such as aluminum can recycling association, polyester bottle recycling Promotion Association, glass bottle recycling Promotion Association, Japanese Packaging Container Recycling Association, etc., forming a coordinated management system for renewable resource recycling on the whole, It plays a quite powerful and effective role

Japan also has many successful experiences in saving and reducing the use of packaging materials, such as: Sony electric in the use of cushioning packaging materials, (1) the reason for this kind of phenomenon in the front of the product uses foam plastic materials, and then uses corrugated cardboard as cushioning materials; (2) Raw electrical products use four pieces of plastic foam materials for cushioning and shockproof. Now it is convenient to operate. Instead, it is only wrapped with four corners for cushioning and shockproof. According to Japanese experts, the United States, Japan, Germany and other advanced industrial countries have experienced the importance of packaging and packaging waste to environmental protection in the process of industrial product production and development, and have accumulated a lot of valuable experience of considerable promotion value. Such as "three Rs" (i.e. resource reduction, reuse and recycling) and other important contents in line with circular economy

it is reported that in the course of economic development, Japan has been raised the problem of excessive packaging since 1969, and at the same time, there have been problems such as garbage pollution caused by packaging; Therefore, a series of corresponding restrictive measures have been taken for long-term research. Although it has been more than 30 years since then, we are still tirelessly studying the topics of packaging and environmental protection. It is not difficult to see the importance of packaging in economic development. At the same time, it is also experienced that packaging and packaging waste and their impact on the environment are complex and difficult problems, which should attract the attention of the broad society. Like their Japanese counterparts, this work should be carried out unremittingly for a long time
