The environmental protection of ink products has become an irreversible trend. Since June 1, the "food safety law" and the "Hygienic standard for the use of additives in food containers and packaging materials" have been officially implemented, which put forward clear requirements for food packaging materials and containers: containers, tools and equipment for storing, transporting and loading and unloading food should be safe and harmless, and directly imported food should have small packages or use non-toxic Determination of noise power level of clean packaged heating ventilation and air conditioning equipment - engineering method gb9068 (8) materials and tableware. It is prohibited to produce or deal in food contaminated by packaging materials, containers, means of transport, etc. This has a significant impact on ink manufacturers, food packaging printers and consumers. The use of green ink has become the only way for environmentally friendly printing. In order to cooperate with the publicity and implementation of the new law and standards, the first China Green Ink Industry Development Summit Forum in 2009 was grandly opened in Hangzhou today. At the same time, in order to promote the environmental protection of the ink industry, the conference launched the large-scale environmental protection public welfare activity of "China's green ink travel" to highlight the themes of "healthy enjoyment of green ink" and "making printing more environmentally friendly and better life". Wujianhua, one of the organizers of the conference and the Secretary General of the national ink manufacturer green alliance, said that as the only national environmental protection organization in the ink industry, the green alliance has carefully planned this environmental protection public welfare activity. This activity will popularize the knowledge of green ink to consumers, spread the concept of green consumption, and improve the public's awareness of food safety, so as to create conditions for the development of the green ink industry
it is reported that the majority of enterprises engaged in food packaging production in China are small and medium-sized enterprises. Such enterprises often do not strictly control the purchased raw materials. Some food packaging and printing enterprises do not meet the safety requirements in the printing process, resulting in the direct contact of hazardous substances with food, causing pollution, and then affecting human health
on the other hand, China started relatively late in environmental protection ink technology, and there is a lot of difference between enterprises and foreign countries in technology cost investment, and their environmental protection ink technology level is far behind the world advanced level. Japan, the United States and Europe have already banned the use of benzene in food packaging inks. However, the current situation in China is that nearly 90% of food packaging uses benzene soluble inks, of which more than 30% exceed the standard
tanjunqiao, senior consultant of China printing and equipment industry association, pointed out that enterprises should improve their awareness of environmental protection and control the new technology in the field of global engineering plastics, and actively promote the use of green water-based and benzene free inks. It is an inevitable choice for the implementation of the sustainable development strategy to reject "excessive packaging" and follow the principles of "reduce", "reuse" and "recycling"
at present, the proportion of environmental friendly ink used by domestic printing enterprises is small, and it has not been widely promoted, which has a large market development space for ink manufacturers. The implementation of the new law not only promotes the environmental protection of the ink industry, but also brings opportunities to the development of the ink industry
