Development status and trend of global non-fibrous PET
Non-fibrous PET was first introduced by Kodak as a substrate for photographic film. Since the mid-1980s, Coca-Cola introduced this variety into the beverage packaging field. Since then, non-fiber PET has developed rapidly and has been developed into bottles. , film, sheet, engineering plastics, packing belt (plastic steel belt) and other fields, only PET pellets for food grade bottles have mineral water, carbonated beverages, hot canned beverages, white wine bottles and beer bottles, etc. Classification. The global PET production capacity for packaging in 2005 reached 14.5 million tons, and its distribution is as follows:
China’s packaging and non-fibrous PET started late, but it has developed rapidly. In 2005, China’s Pet Preform production capacity reached 3.1 million tons, and the output reached 1.7 million tons, of which 1.2 million tons were sold domestically and 500,000 tons were exported. According to the current consumption of PET in bottles in Europe and the United States (17KG/person in the US, 20KG/person in Europe) and the proportion of total PET production capacity, there is still much room for development of PET production for packaging in China (currently 1.3KG/person), it is expected that its growth rate should be 15%/year, which means that the production capacity will be close to 6.5-7 million tons/year by the end of the 11th Five-Year Plan.
Conclusion: Due to the rapid growth in the use of disposable China Pet Bottle, new pressures are placed on environmental protection in China and the world. We often say a word “waste is put together as garbage, and waste is placed separately as a resource.” If we can do a good job in the recycling and utilization of waste PET, it will not only reduce environmental pollution, but also provide a new raw material route for human beings.
