With the decrease of forest resources and the rise of global temperature, the voice of protecting valuable forest resources and seeking new materials to replace solid wood is rising. At the same time, the increasing plastic waste and various natural plant fiber materials have become a major headache for all countries.
In China, a nationwide strict ban on crop straw incineration has been carried out since 2017. Previously, the government encouraged crop straw smashing and returning to the field on the grounds of increasing soil fertility and fluffy degree, and keeping moisture. It is beneficial to the utilization of farmland. However, the crop straw returning to the field after smashing did not become part of the soil as expected, but remained massive after many years, and became the survival carrier of harmful insects, causing disasters to crops. For farmers, it directly leads to the reduction of output and income. Under this severe situation, how to utilize crop straw has become the top priority of governments at all levels. At the same time, it has also become a great opportunity for the development of wood plastic composite china industry.
Traditional anti-corrosive wood, plywood, heavy bamboo products and other materials have congenital morbidity. Their short life, easy water absorption, expansion,
deformation, mildew, cracking and other problems make many contractors of outdoor projects and scenic spots have a headache because of the annual maintenance and renovation.
Wood plastic composites have the dual advantages of plastics and wood. They are not only waterproof, moisture-proof, mildew-proof and termite-proof, but also have excellent characteristics of long life, zero formaldehyde, pollution-free, pollution-free and it is recyclable. At the same time, wood-plastic composites have good plasticity, and the quality of non-cracking, non-expanding and non-deforming of wood plastic composites saves the cost of later maintenance. As a result, wood-plastic composites have naturally become ideal wood substitutes.
Such a huge development space is both an opportunity and a challenge for China's wood plastic composite application processing and marketing enterprises: while vigorously developing export trade, we should also increase the popularization and promotion of China's wood plastic composite application market. For manufacturing enterprises, it is necessary to further reduce production costs and steadily improve product quality. At the same time, the research and development of new products should be strengthened. We should promote the transformation and upgrading of wood-plastic materials from decorative to the structural application, so as to improve and possess the core competitiveness, seize the high-end market at home and abroad, maximize benefits and achieve industrial continuity.
