How to recycle paper pulp packaging?


What are the environmental protection packaging materials?

  • Paper pulp packaging: Renewable, degradable paper materials, such as recyclable cardboard, kraft paper, cardboard, etc.
  • Biodegradable plastics: made from biodegradable raw materials, such as corn starch, cellulose, etc.
  • Degradable plastic: has a certain decomposition performance, can be broken down into non-toxic and harmless substances, such as polylactic acid (PLA).
  • Recyclable plastics: plastic materials that can be recycled, such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), etc.
  • Bio-based plastics: plastics produced from renewable plant raw materials, such as bio-based polylactic acid (Bio-PET), bio-based polyethylene (Bio-PE), etc.
  • Degradable filler: Material used to fill boxes and protect products, such as degradable starch particles, cardboard chips, etc.


Advantages of Moulded Paper Pulp

Environmental Protection Characteristics

- Degradable, renewable, recyclable

When exposed to moisture, molded cardboard absorbs water and is degraded by microorganisms, gradually breaking down into harmless organic substances. And in the decomposition process will not release toxic substances, do not cause pollution to the environment. This means that in the soil or other natural environment, it can be broken down and become a beneficial nutrient. The production of paper pulp molding usually uses recycled paper raw materials such as waste paper and waste paper board.

Once plastic molded packaging has completed its function, it can be recycled and reprocessed into new molded pulp packaging or other paper products. This reduces the need for limited raw wood resources, helping to reduce stress and damage to the natural environment.

Protection Performance

- Provides good anti-shock protection function

Molded Paper Pulp Packaging can be custom designed according to the shape and size of the product to ensure that each product is properly wrapped and protected for all types of products.

Creative Design

- A variety of shapes and color options

Custom Molded Pulp Packaging usually uses molds for molding, and these molds can flexibly produce products of various shapes and styles, including box, tray, pad, etc., to meet the packaging needs of different products. When making pulp packaging, designers can give full play to their creativity by adjusting the color, texture and surface treatment of the pulp, etc., to give the product a different look and style, making it more attractive and personalized.


Recovery Methods and Recycling

The basic recycling process of molded packaging is to send the pulp packaging to the recycling facility for breaking and processing, or to chemically treat the waste molded pulp packaging, separate the fibers and produce recycled paper products.

In addition, we can also achieve effective recycling through the following methods:

  1. Biomass Energy Production: Waste paper and waste paper boards can be used as raw materials for biomass energy, which can be converted into biomass pellets or biomass fuels through compression and processing for power generation or heating.
  2. Composting: Waste paper and waste paper boards can be used as raw materials for composting, by composting with other organic waste to produce organic fertilizer for soil improvement and plant growth.
  3. Production of Biological Molded Pulp Products: Waste paper and waste paper boards can be used to produce biological products, such as biodegradable plastics, bio-based plastics, etc., thereby reducing the demand for traditional plastics and petrochemical products.
  4. Recycled Paper Products: Waste paper and waste paper board can be reprocessed and processed into recycled paper products, such as wrapping paper, paper bags, cartons, etc., to achieve the reuse of resources.
