According to the report Inpia , the forty-first meeting of the Technical Commission of the National Association of Plastic Industries of Iran this morning, December 11 The current was held in the office of Saboran Polymer.

According to this report, the agenda of the Technical Commission was; Pre-order news, review of incoming and outgoing letters, review of the issue of gradual removal of plastic bags, review of the issue of banning the use of disposable containers and review of the memorandum between the National Standards Organization and the Iranian Chamber of Commerce.
Try to reduce the attack on disposable tableware

Samadi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Association of Manufacturers of Disposable Containers, referring to the efforts made to reduce the advertising attack in this industry, said: “It is suggested that the National Association of Plastic Industries of Iran pay attention to this issue. Done, for whose benefit?

He continued in this regard: “Without a doubt, there are people who benefit from the removal of disposable tableware, while plastic and disposable tableware are embedded in people’s lives.”

The head of the Association of Disposable Containers said that the relevant institutions should educate people about not dumping garbage and plastic in nature. Not dumping disposable dishes in the environment is related to people’s culture. Attack on every industry there is a rent behind it.

In the part of the agenda dedicated to the incoming and outgoing letters, the environmental letter to the Cabinet on the subject of “environmental criteria for reducing and phasing out the consumption of plastic bags and disposable products based on hydrocarbon compounds” was reviewed.

Regarding this letter, Alireza Mirblok stated: If the content of the letter becomes a circular, it will be very difficult to delete it.

Saeed Sabouri, head of the technical commission of the National Association of Plastic Industries of Iran, also stated: “One of the major problems of the country is the issue of recycling, which has not been organized yet, while in developed countries stores buy plastic and recycle it.” .

He continued: “According to this letter, even dishes called plants are included in this circular.”

The content of the child letter and the will to implement it

Patient also described the content of the text of this letter as childish and considered it ridiculous. He continued: “Certainly, the people in whom the organization prepared this letter do not even know what it means to be environmentally friendly!”

“The definition of environmental compatibility varies from country to country,” he said. According to the literature of this letter, it is understood that they want to do so.

“As soon as people hear the name of a plant, they generally think it’s good, but that is not the case,” Sabr-Amuz said.

According to this expert, the probability of the National Plastic Industries Association influencing the above issue by letter writing method is very low. Patient suggested: For a better result, the lobby gives a better answer, because the other side is determined to implement the above issue.

Khademi, one of the other participants in this meeting, also considered the presence and involvement of all different sectors of the polymer industry and manufacturers in this issue necessary.

Khademi continued: “In principle, there is an incentive and mandatory standard, which are part of the standards of this incentive section, and the Supreme Council of the Standards Organization is responsible for this, so the environment can not oblige anyone to obtain a standard.”

They can not stop a manufacturer that has a standard

Alireza Mirblok also stated on this issue: A circular has been written and Ms. Ebtekar has sent it to Vice President Ishaq Jahangiri for approval by the cabinet. On the other hand, this letter has been sent to different places.

He continued: “As a rule, the procedure is that such cases should be sent first to the expert, then to the cabinet.” This practice of theirs shows that the other party is determined to implement and simply wants to obtain an expert opinion, with the sole purpose of stating that such opinions have been taken.

Mirblok said: the producer of goods in the country must have a standard, therefore disposable utensils that have a standard must be allowed to be produced.

The polymer expert added: “Now we have standards according to the law, and if the environment has a problem, it should inform the standards to the municipalities so that they do their job properly.

He reiterated that in this way, it seems that they are seeking to gather opinions after the approval of the Cabinet!

In another part of his speech, Samadi, pointing out that his biodegradable sentence also has a problem, said: “Biodegradable products also feed on other microorganisms in nature due to the small size of its plastic parts.” And this is another problem for the environment itself.

He continued: “If all plant products are to be produced, the plant itself will cause more damage to the ozone layer. In addition, the plant itself is bactericidal.”

He suggested that the other side hold a joint meeting with related organizations to achieve a favorable outcome.

Zahed Ahmadi also emphasized that the issue should be understood well first, then acted, raising the question of why the plastic bag manufacturers themselves do not welcome this issue.

He continued: “Manufacturers’ opinions must be taken into account in this regard, and if they have a problem with this issue, they must offer their proposed solutions.”

The university professor described the existing vacuum as the absence of producers in such meetings.
