In 2019, 15 countries and regions unveiled the “Plastic Ban”, which restricted the production, sales and use of disposable plastics. In January 2020, China National Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Ecological Environment issued the “Suggestions on Further Strengthening the Regulation of Plastic Pollution”, which also prohibited/restricted the manufacture and use of some non-degradable plastics. Under the increasingly stringent policy, the global demand for degradable material is now in rapid growth.
This webinar aims to interpret the regulatory requirements of degradable plastics for food contact use in China, EU and in the United States. The speaker will introduce the development of food-contact degradable plastics in China and its market access preparation work.
