A Ban On A Foreign Trash Global Trade Dark War.
Apr 20, 2018

"Made in China" is supplied to the world, and Chinese recycled garbage is being labeled "seal".

Since July 2017, China formally notified the world trade organization, said after the start will no longer receive the import of solid waste at the end of 2017, the ministry of commerce again additional ban, since the end of 2018, China will ban the other 16 kinds of scrap metal, chemical imports.

As the world's largest garbage importer, the "foreign garbage" trade is beginning to come to the fore.

Shut out of the

Chinese ecological environment ministry spokesman said in Beijing Liu Youbin 19, to further standardize the solid waste import management, prevention and control of environmental pollution, will be banned the import of scrap metal, scrap, scrap car parts, smelting slag, waste plastics, and 32 varieties sources of industrial solid wastes.

Starting in July 2017, China has announced to the world that it will no longer accept 24 kinds of solid waste, such as waste plastics, waste paper, discarded slag, discarded textiles and waste slag.

As the January 2018 ban went into effect, the foreign solid waste, commonly known as "foreign trash", was officially rejected.

"Foreign garbage" is not the "garbage" of conventional cognition. Its scientific name is imported solid waste.

In addition to the common residual wastes, waste materials, medical equipment, industrial waste and radioactive waste are also in their category.

After the reform and opening up, China has the world's largest reserves of cheap labor force, the rapid development of the manufacturing at the same time, the demand for resources is increasing year by year, moderate imported solid wastes abroad, can effectively supplement of plastics, paper and other resources.

According to ChinaBriefing, a business consultancy, more than two-thirds of us waste paper exports went directly to China in 2016, with a total value of more than $2.2 billion.

The 27 eu countries also rely on China to receive waste, sending 87% of recycled plastic directly or indirectly to China.

According to the guardian, 2.7 million tonnes of waste plastics go to China each year, accounting for two-thirds of the country's plastic waste.

According to one set of data, China's annual imports of solid waste account for 56 percent of the world's annual production, and last year it imported 7.3 million tons, worth $3.7 billion.

In 2016 alone, China imported 7.3 million tons of waste plastics, worth $3.7 billion.

The U.S. exports about 16 million tons of garbage to China.

According to a study in the journal of dialogue, India, the second largest importer, receives only a sixth of China's waste, compared with the rest of the world.

World tour

A beverage bottles from the United States, together with other waste landed at tianjin port, in hebei province was melting plastic particles, then shipped to a mill made of lighter chassis, zhejiang province, and then in the factory of jiangsu are assembled into a cigarette lighter, the last shipment from Shanghai to Europe's retail -- thus depicts a typical science blog "foreign garbage" round-the-world journey.

In fact, in addition to the plastic case, the metal part of the lighter is likely to be made from recycled scrap metal.

It's a normal business chain, and every link in it doesn't really know where the ingredients are coming from, or where the product is going.

But every link has benefited from the deal: America's recycling companies are getting rid of the plastic that is hard to deal with;

The three small factories harvested the difference between the intermediate profit and the waste plastic and the new plastic;

European consumers get cheap lighters;

Even the logistics companies that helped tranship the material have received freight charges -- higher if they are illegal.

Over the years, the state has collected and classified waste paper and waste plastics, and exported them to China, Vietnam, Thailand and other regions.

As a result, these countries not only have to pay for waste disposal, but they can also make money from it.

The collected garbage, mainly plastic, waste paper, metal materials, etc., is also a certain recycling value of materials.

The cost of new plastics recovered from waste plastics is cheaper than the direct synthesis of new plastics from petroleum extracts. Once the use is large enough, it can create huge profit margins.

Industrial chain "blackening"

Economic interests will lead to various profit-seeking behaviors, and the value of foreign garbage will be gradually "developed".

For example, the discarded syringes and pipes are imported after the name of ordinary waste plastic, and then they are sold on the market by re-cleaning the packaging.

After the import of slag containing all kinds of non-ferrous metals, it can be resmelted to extract high purity products.

E-waste is a major import item.

Globally, more than 500 million tons of e-waste are generated each year, more than 70 percent of which enter China.

According to the CCTV report, it costs 300 yuan per ton to dispose of e-waste in some foreign countries, but it costs only 100 yuan to smuggle it to China.

For domestic "importers", instead of paying for e-waste, they get 100 yuan from each other, which they can then sell for a little more.

Some smuggled illegal foreign garbage into China, through the entry, transshipment, processing, sales and other links, formed a profiteering industry chain.

Old garment, for example, after they enter into the Chinese country receiving general with postiche a ton of price to buy these old clothes, and then through the layers of sorting, can eventually sold by 1 yuan 1 catty price, removing the artificial cost, turn a hand price is expanded several times.

A serious industrial chain can easily "turn black" under "inside and out".

Along with it, fake and inferior products and health risks;

Long-term irreversible damage to soil, water, air, etc.

The influence of foreign garbage on the environment mainly comes from insufficient sorting.

While developed countries have a stable and efficient garbage classification system of Japan garbage classification according to the regulation of various counties and cities can be as many as dozens of different, but the level of the sorting of garbage utilization is still not enough.

A windfall to restore

As of January 1, 2018, a system that has been running smoothly for decades is being reshaped: on this day, China's import ban on foreign waste is officially in force.

The ban covers 24 types of solid waste, including waste plastics from domestic waste, unsorted waste paper and waste textile materials.

According to New Zealand's environment ministry, the total value of the new country's exports to China last year totaled 21 million, with a total weight of 50,000 tons.

The rubbish, which will not be available to China from next year, will have to be found in New Zealand's recycling department.

But for New Zealand, which is small, domestic land is hard to use and buyers are hard to find.

Not only is the New Zealand family troubled, but the UK's environmental protection agency is also paying the price for its chronic laxity.

Although they have long been warned that China will eventually ban the import of foreign waste, the local government has yet to make any effort to build a new garbage collection system.

Simon ellin, chief executive of the British waste recycling association, said angrily that the British government had done a terrible job at the job.

"If the government takes waste and recycling seriously, they need to invest and come up with a coherent plan for the recycling industry," he said.

The fact is, the plan does not exist, and the British Isles are facing a serious waste siege crisis.

Not only is the new day such small and medium-sized island is China's policy tightening, even as large as the bay, in the garbage disposal system relies heavily on China's case, once can't deal with so much rubbish.

In the United States, according to bloomberg, a business information agency, one-third of the world's garbage is not recycled.

To eliminate excess waste, 40,000 people are engaged in jobs related to the export of garbage to China.

China bans the import of rubbish, and the United States faces the difficulty of dealing with these enormous things on its own.

Peter bird, chairman of the government recycling advisory council in the UK, said the responsibility for tackling long-term waste must cover global supply chains, particularly manufacturers.

This means that producers have to pay a price to ensure that the products they are making can be processed in a more efficient and environmentally friendly manner.

The French media believe that China's moratorium on foreign waste will force Europe to upgrade its renewable industry.

French BBS newspaper reported that a total ban on the garbage, in the short term, the French local governments at all levels and related waste recycling business losses can be hard to avoid, but in the long run this disruptive decision may promote manufacturing.
