The study found that compared to some so-called environmentally friendly "green" packaging, PS is more "energy efficient" than water in its use of energy, water use, solid waste (weight and volume). Green packaging "competitors use less. Moreover, the study pointed out that PS foam products consume very little energy and water, and only 1/3 of the energy consumed by PLA products.
Nonetheless, jail officers in more than 60 California regions, large and small, inland and coastal areas, have proposed a statewide ban on PS food packaging. Food vendors in all of these jurisdictions must provide alternative packaging, including compostable materials such as paper, plastic, etc., or recyclable packaging.
In addition, Senator Alan Loveental also proposed to ban food suppliers or pharmaceuticals to give customers a foamed PS food container.
The passage of this ordinance will provide California with more opportunities to work with non-foam packaging products to inspire large international companies such as International Paper, Hutamaki, Dartboard, Pactiv and other non-foam products in California Potential employment opportunities.
Although the ban on the use of PS packaging can stimulate potential employment opportunities, but the value of recycling polystyrene packaging is immeasurable. And the broad application of polystyrene itself, light weight and other characteristics have shown the value of polystyrene packaging itself and good economic benefits.
In this regard, KeithChristman also said, "I think many communities have seen the value of PS itself, they strongly support the maintenance of PS. And people will continue to use it."
Banning the usage of Styrofoam is unwise. How to recycle waste Styrofoam and reduce the pollution is worth thinking. Recycling Styrofoam and reuse them through GREENMAX machine and then use the waste resources to make delicate frames is a good way.
