Relevance of Conventional and Biodegradable Plastics in Agriculture(Chinese Version) 传统塑料与生物降解塑料在农业生产中的相关性

This report supports the European Commission’s potential policies for agricultural plastics and the construction of a framework for biodegradable plastics. Focusing mainly on the end-of-life issues of these plastics, it identifies the potential environmental impacts of conventional and biodegradable plastics, especially their improper collection, low recycling rates and the effectiveness of their biodegradability. It also describes the policy and technical measures that have been taken at the EU level and lists the shortcomings of existing measures and suggestions for improvement, to deal with the inefficiency or even the lack of existing agricultural plastic waste management programs in EU members and accelerate the transition to a circular economy.

该报告为欧盟委员会针对农用塑料和构建生物降解塑料框架所可能采取的各项政策提供支持。主要着眼于这些塑料的生命周期终止问题,指出了传统塑料和生物降解塑料所可能造成的环境影响,特别是这些塑料的不当收集、低循环利用率以及生物降解能力的有效性。同时也阐述了欧盟层面目前已经采取的政策和技术措施,并列举出了现有措施的不足之处及改善建议,以解决欧盟成员国现有农用塑料废弃物管理计划效率低下甚至缺失的问题,加速循环经济转型。
