Will the spring of domestic waste be far behind when foreign waste returns to zero?

release date: Source: zhuochuang paper

this year is the end of the year to ban the entry of foreign waste and promote the reform of solid waste import management system. In recent years, China's waste paper import has also shown a decreasing pattern year by year. As a substitute for foreign waste, ensuring the accuracy of the test, imported waste pulp also has its limitations, and the demand for domestic waste substitution may continue to rise

At the beginning of June, the Ministry of ecology and environment held a regular press conference in May to introduce the national environmental quality status and environmental monitoring in 2019. Liu Youbin informed Fang Huayin, the on-site person in charge of the project of the Ministry of ecological environment, that he would continue to promote the reform of the solid waste import management system. This year is the closing year of banning foreign garbage from entering the country and promoting the reform of the solid waste import management system. The Ministry of ecological environment, together with the member units of the inter ministerial coordination group, has formulated a 2020 work plan to significantly reduce the import of solid waste and maintain the high-pressure situation of cracking down on foreign garbage smuggling. The newly revised law of the people's Republic of China on the prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste has significantly increased the amount of fines for illegal dumping, stacking and disposal of solid waste into the country

judging from the trend of domestic waste paper import in recent years, China's waste paper import volume is decreasing year by year

since 2015, the import of waste paper has changed from the automatic import license directory to the restricted import directory. The imported waste paper needs to be examined and licensed by the competent administrative department of environmental protection under the State Council, and can be imported only after obtaining the restricted import license of waste paper. On July 18, 2017, China officially notified the WTO that it would urgently ban the entry of 24 kinds of solid wastes in four categories before the end of 2017, including highly polluting solid wastes such as waste plastics from domestic sources, vanadium slag, unsorted waste paper and waste textile raw materials

in 2018, China introduced more intensive policies to restrict the import of waste paper. Since 2018, the import of mixed waste paper has been completely banned in China. Since March 1st, 2018, the new regulations on waste paper import have been implemented, which clearly stipulates the qualification of import enterprises and the impurity content of imported waste paper. The scale of imported waste paper enterprises requires more than 50000 tons/year, and the impurity content of imported waste paper ≤ 0.5%; On May 28, the General Administration of Customs publicized the "implementation rules for the supervision and administration of the pre shipment inspection of imported solid wastes that can be used as raw materials", which emphasized the specifications of the inspection institutions engaged in the pre shipment inspection of imported wastes by loading weights, especially the 100% open box inspection and Quarantine of American wastes

in June 2018, the State Council issued the opinions of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council on Comprehensively Strengthening Ecological Environmental Protection and firmly fighting the battle against pollution, which clearly proposed a comprehensive ban on the entry of foreign garbage, and strive to basically achieve zero import of solid waste by the end of 2020

with the continuous enhancement of domestic environmental protection situation, domestic approval for waste paper import has also been significantly tightened. In 2020, the cumulative import was 1.3412 million tons, a decrease of 48.62% over the same period last year

at the same time, the domestic paper industry has also increased the import of waste pulp

according to the monitoring data of zhuochuang, in April 2020, due to the excellent mechanical and heat resistance of engineering plastics, the monthly import of waste pulp was 194900 tons, up 9.62% month on month and 302.61% year on year. Although there has been a rapid increase in the import of waste pulp in recent years, there are still some limitations in the current import of waste pulp: the price of high-quality waste pulp is also higher, and the papermaking cost increases; The quality of cheap waste pulp is difficult to guarantee; The import standard of domestic waste pulp has not been issued yet, and the production capacity of foreign waste pulp is relatively limited

on the whole, it is still difficult to make up for the gap caused by the ban on the import of foreign waste. The demand for domestic waste substitution may continue to rise, or will continue to boost the price of domestic waste in the later stage. Of course, at present, due to the impact of relevant public health events, market demand has weakened, and the driving force of this gap for the price of domestic waste is not equal to the weakening of demand. However, if the market demand recovers well in the later stage, the waste paper gap may be an important driving force for the rising price of domestic waste
