The hottest polluter pays for environmental treatm

Polluter pays applied to environmental treatment

recently, the European Commission on environment, public health and consumer policy approved a report submitted by Italy by a majority vote. The main content of this report is to require that the "polluter pays" principle be applied to the treatment of PVC waste, and PVC products are subject to mandatory and clear identification, so as to distinguish them from other types of plastics when recycled

this report from Italy pointed out that due to the discharge of highly toxic dioxins during the incineration of PVC waste, further legislation should be considered to implement the classified collection of PVC waste, that is, soft and hard PVC should be separated, hard PVC should be landfilled because of its high chlorine content, and the main problem of soft PVC is the possible pollution of groundwater caused by the release of plasticizer phthalate, so incineration treatment is appropriate. Additives added in PVC production, such as cadmium and lead, are highly toxic metal elements that have been blacklisted by the EU. Therefore, the use of stabilizers containing cadmium or lead should be phased out. Phthalate, as one of the plasticizers in plastic production, is suspected to be associated with some cancers and kidney diseases Φ 44mm disease, which may cause reproductive system problems, should also be minimized, especially in the use of medical equipment

pvc is one of the most widely used plastics in the world at present. It is widely used in the construction industry, the manufacturing of packaging materials and household goods, and the automotive industry. According to the statistics of the European environmental Commission, at present, 3.6 million tons of PVC waste are produced in Europe every year. With the scrapping of products produced in the 1970s and 1980s, this figure is likely to increase by 80% in 20 years. The recycling of PVC is extremely difficult, so the vast majority of PVC waste can only be landfilled

according to the results of a recent study released by the Ministry of environment, transport and regions of the British government, although the production and use of PVC have an impact on the environment, its impact and recycled plastic granulator has broad development space in China, which is not necessarily more serious than the relevant environmental problems caused by some common substitutes at present, such as linoleum, lead products and paper products. This new research report suggests that a wider range of factors should be taken into account when formulating policies for the PVC industry, including the applicability of various substitutes generally specified as 1 ≤ h0/d ≤ 3 and whether the source is sufficient, the comparative study of the environmental impact of substitutes and PVC, the impact on employment, consumers' willingness to accept and bear high-cost substitutes, and so on

according to the investigation of the European Union in recent two years, the environmental harm of PVC mainly lies in its production process, not only in the treatment after waste. After the adjustment of the production process, the environmental harm is expected to be greatly reduced, and the environmental cost of the production process can be reflected in the product price
