Since its inception, paper tableware has been widely promoted and used in developed countries and regions such as Europe, America, Japan, Singapore, Korea, and Hong Kong. Paper products are uniquely beautiful, environmentally friendly, sanitary, oil-proof and temperature-resistant, and are non-toxic, tasteless, good image, good-feeling, degradable, and pollution-free. As soon as paper tableware entered the market, it was quickly accepted by people with its unique charm. International fast food and beverage suppliers such as McDonald's, KFC, Coca-Cola, Pepsi and instant noodle manufacturers all use paper tableware.
• While the plastic products that appeared twenty years ago and are known as the "White Revolution" brought convenience to mankind, they also produced "white pollution" that is difficult to eliminate today. Because plastic tableware is difficult to recycle, incineration produces harmful gases, and cannot be degraded naturally, and burial will destroy the soil structure. The Chinese government spends hundreds of millions of dollars each year to deal with it, but the results are not great. The development of green environmental protection products and the elimination of white pollution have become a major global social problem.
• At present, from an international perspective, many countries in Europe and the United States have already banned the use of plastic tableware. From the domestic situation, the Ministry of Railways, the Ministry of Transport, the State Environmental Protection Administration, the State Planning Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology, as well as local governments such as Wuhan, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Dalian, Xiamen, Guangzhou and many other large cities have taken the lead in issuing laws to completely prohibit the use of disposables. Plastic tableware, the State Economic and Trade Commission (1999) No. 6 document also clearly stipulates that at the end of 2000, the use of plastic tableware is prohibited nationwide. A global plastic tableware manufacturing industry is gradually emerging. The green and environmentally friendly products of "replacing plastic with paper" have become one of the trends of current social development.
• In order to adapt to and promote the development of the activity of "replacing plastic with paper", on December 28, 1999, the State Economic and Trade Commission, together with the State Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision, the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Health, issued the "General Technical Standards for Disposable Degradable Tableware" Two national standards and the "One-time Degradable Performance Test Method" have been implemented since January 1, 2000. It provides a unified technical basis for the production, sales, use and supervision of disposable degradable tableware in my country.
• With the rapid development of our country’s economy and the steady improvement of people’s living standards, people’s awareness of hygiene and health has been continuously strengthened. At present, disposable paper cups
have become a necessity for people’s daily consumption in many economically developed areas. Experts predict: in the past three years Paper tableware will quickly become popular throughout the country and enter the home in large numbers. Its market is rapidly growing and expanding.
•Plastic tableware is the general trend to end its historical mission, and paper tableware is becoming a fashion trend. At present, the paper product
market has just started, and the market prospect is broad. According to statistics, the consumption of paper-based tableware was 3 billion in 1999, and reached 4.5 billion in 2000. It is expected that the consumption will increase by 50% every year in the next five years. Paper catering utensils are now widely used in commerce, aviation, mid-to-high-end fast food restaurants, cold drinks halls, large and medium-sized enterprises, government departments, hotels, families in economically developed areas, etc., and are rapidly expanding to medium and small cities in the interior. In China, the most populous country in the world. Its huge market potential provides a broad space for paper manufacturers.
