[ Food machinery and equipment net name enterprises online ] Due to the large environmental pollution caused by plastic packaging materials , many countries have realized the impact of food and beverage packaging on the environment, and began to use paper materials as food packaging, and proposed paper , Initiatives to replace plastic straws with degradable plastics or natural materials, and more. In the food and beverage processing industry, some beverage companies have also begun to adjust packaging, or use recyclable and recyclable beverage bottles, or develop biodegradable water bottles to reduce plastic pollution.

"Vials" or reusable packaging for food or beverages
It is reported that a company recently demonstrated its "sample vials" made from recycled and recycled marine plastics, which means that one day marine garbage can be used for recycling packaging of food or beverages.
According to relevant personnel, the company made about 300 sample bottles using 25% recycled marine plastic recovered from the Mediterranean and the beach, and through recycling technology, any quality PET plastic used can be recycled and made into food or beverage Packaging of high quality plastic.
The author further learned that in order to dispose of the collected waste plastics, they used a polymer depolymerization technology, which can decompose PET into multiple monomers so that they can be recycled. After that, the materials are polymerized using equipment to generate New recyclable plastics, or recycled packaging for food or beverage, can reduce the pollution and other problems caused by traditional plastics to a certain extent.
Biodegradable water bottle development helps reduce plastic pollution
It is understood that a beverage processing company has formulated a sustainable development goal and announced that it will increase control of plastic pollution, that is, to achieve 100% use of recyclable and renewable material packaging by 2025. At present, companies have begun to phase out plastic straws and replace them with paper straws or other innovative designs, while cocoa powder packaging has also switched to paper materials.
In addition, the company began working on the development of biodegradable water bottles to reduce plastic waste. It has also collaborated with other companies to develop new packaging materials, such as a marine biodegradable food-grade polypropylene, a polymer used in food packaging trays, trays, cups and bottles. The company hopes that the use of recycled PET plastic in its bottled aquatic products will increase to 35% worldwide by 2025 to reduce plastic waste.
Multiple steps to keep users away from plastic bottles
A few days ago, another beverage processing company planned to replace its plastic bottles with aluminum cans to fill a drinking water product throughout the United States, and then this program will be promoted worldwide. The industry believes that the replacement of traditional plastic bottle packaging water by pure water packed in aluminum cans can help avoid a large amount of plastic waste. Although aluminum is also polluted in the production process, recycling aluminum can save 95% of energy and achieve 100% recyclability. However, the production cost of pure water in aluminum cans is high, which is not conducive to long-term sales.
To this end, the beverage company is also actively promoting recyclable and recyclable plastic beverage bottles. In addition, the company recently launched a soda drink machine for schools, offices and other places, providing customers with an alternative to reducing disposable plastic bottles. It aims to replace the typical vending machines in the past, which are usually filled with plastic bottles. Carbonated drinks. By encouraging consumers to bring their own cups for drinks, consumers are encouraged to stay away from disposable plastic or plastic bottled water, thereby reducing plastic pollution.
 
Degradable packaging materials for food packaging
The author was informed that a foreign team successfully developed a new type of food packaging film using milk proteins such as casein. Compared with traditional food cling film, it is 500 times stronger in blocking air and keeping food fresh, and it is a renewable, biodegradable food packaging alternative. According to reports, this packaging material is more resistant to water and oil, and can be directly used in the packaging of cheese sticks, baked goods and confections, which has also created a new value-added market for the food packaging industry.
Conclusion: As the "white pollution" caused by the development of plastic packaging materials (including plastic beverage bottles) is becoming increasingly serious, various countries and the food and beverage processing industry have fully realized the harm of plastic pollution to the environment, and reducing plastic pollution has also Start to put it into action, let us look forward to an environment without "plastic" pollution in the future!
