Food packaging containers focus on recycling

At the seminar on the current situation and development trend of food packaging containers organized by the China Packaging and Food Machinery Corporation and the Italian company STMA, the representatives from the backbone enterprises of the food and food machinery industry carefully analyzed the current status of the domestic food packaging containers and various The advantages and disadvantages of the containers have been extensively discussed and discussed with regard to popular packaging containers and development trends in developed countries and regions. Everyone agrees that it is the responsibility of those in the industry to eliminate obsolete food packaging methods and containers and pay attention to the recycling and recycling of food packaging containers.

Looking at several current food packaging containers, the advantages and disadvantages coexist.

Metal containers are lightweight and easy to transport and store. From an environmental point of view, they are renewable materials that can be fully degraded in 10 to 20 years. The disadvantage is that the tank body is vulnerable to damage, rust, and lack of visibility.
Due to the glass's own characteristics, the glass container packaging can provide the health guarantee after the metal screw cap. Glass containers are often used for food packaging containers where the value is high and the consumer has specific needs. The disadvantages are the possibility of crushing on the canning line and in transit, which affects the cost. The packaging of glass containers imposes strict requirements on the quality of wide-mouth bottles. It is indispensable to use safety and shock protection devices, over-safety devices and avoidance of wide-mouth bottle collision devices. It can better demonstrate the high efficiency of the production line and the excellent products. Sex.

Polyester container packaging is a new packaging method developed in the market in recent years. It is based on mineral water in the beverage industry. It also includes many other products such as tea, juice, and milk. In Europe, polyester containers are replacing Tetra-soft packaging, which was almost irreplaceable in the past, to solve the problem of recycling. Some countries in Europe stipulate that by the year 2005, Tetra Pak will no longer be able to recycle and reuse soft packaging materials.

China has not paid attention to the issue of recycling of food packaging containers. Some food companies are still introducing large quantities of materials to be eliminated in Europe to meet the growing demand for food packaging. In another decade or so, when we are delighted with the rapid development of the food industry, we will also face an anxiety that is the “pollution” of food flexible packaging materials. This is just as if we face “white pollution” and we must manage it. It, we must pay a certain price. Therefore, grasping the development trend of international food packaging containers as soon as possible and pursuing advantages and avoiding harms are both the responsibility of our food industry and should become our actions.
