Since the new "solid waste law" clearly states that the state will gradually realize zero import of solid waste, increases the punishment for illegal solid waste, and makes it clear that the carrier and the importer shall bear joint and several liability (some illegal acts can be fined more than 500000 yuan and less than 5000000 yuan), the new solid waste law will come into effect on September 1, 2020.
Affected by this, shipping companies are worried about or will be jointly and severally liable. At present, only COSCO Shipping Company has heard the statement issued by COSCO Shipping. At present, Sinotrans, Yangming, evergreen, one, CMA and other major shipping companies import recycled plastic particles, but such enterprises have not made relevant statements.
In the medium and long term, the attitude of the main shipping companies will affect other shipping enterprises. It is still unknown whether to follow this practice in the later stage. The impact will be evaluated according to the evolution of the situation.
At the same time, as a finished product, the regenerated particles are not in the form of solid waste. It is worth noting that with the implementation of the new "solid waste law", people in the industry generally believe that low-end imported particles will be gradually rejected in the future, and high-quality imported particles will be the main source.
