China is importing a large amount of waste paper from Europe and the United States

the domestic paper industry is in short supply, and imported waste paper has become an important raw material

recently, it was learned from several major shipping companies in Shanghai that due to the strong domestic demand for papermaking, a large number of waste paper are constantly transported by sea from Europe and the United States. This situation has been confirmed by China Paper Association, listed paper companies and China Customs

buy 60% of the waste paper exported from the United States

according to the report in the September 17 issue of weekly, China has bought a factory of alloy in Gahanna, Ohio this year, and bought 58% of the waste paper exported from the United States. The garbage thrown away by Americans, the body of end-of-life cars, old screws and nails, and the magazines in their hands, were exported to China worth $6.7 billion in 2006, second only to aerospace products

a Tetra Pak China environmental protection report released by Tetra Pak Sweden on October 12 also said that, taking 2005 as an example, the total consumption of pulp in China in that year was 5200 tons, including about 2800 tons of waste pulp, but only about 1450 tons of waste pulp collected domestically, half of which needs to be imported. At present, China has become the largest importer of waste pulp

according to the public information of the General Administration of Customs of China, the United States and the European Union are the main sources of waste paper in China. In 2006, China imported 8.56 million tons and 5.49 million tons of waste paper from the United States and the European Union, an increase of 14.6% and 20.5%, accounting for 71.5% of the total imports. In addition, 3.24 million tons were imported from Japan, an increase of 5.9%

for Japan, China is the largest market for its waste paper export. According to statistics, Japan's waste paper export volume in January this year reached 245765 tons, an increase of 57.9% over the same period last year, which was a continuous growth for 19 consecutive months, while China imported 181108 tons of waste paper from Japan, accounting for 74% of its waste paper export

China's paper industry is in short supply

both the customs and the China Paper Association affirm that imported waste paper is an important source of papermaking raw materials in China. As of April this year, some major import regions of pulp (wood pulp) in China have declined. For example, 640000 tons of pulp (wood pulp) were imported from Canada, down 22.6%; Indonesia 431000 tons, it is generally done in the concave convex temperature box, and the copper mesh should be replaced immediately, with a decrease of 13.2%; Brazil 320000 tons, down 14.9%

Shanghai shipping enterprises, customs and the paper industry have analyzed and pointed out that China's substantial import of waste paper is first driven by domestic demand. Several announcements of Fujian Qingshan Paper Co., Ltd. (600103) show that China's paper industry is a rare market in China, which will not only affect the company's sales demand, but also one of the industries that are still larger than the market supply. It is expected that China's paper consumption will still significantly accelerate in the next few years, and the annual growth rate of paper production will be more than 10%, higher than the growth rate of national economic GDP, especially paper, packaging paper The demand and production of several major products such as paperboard and household paper will still increase significantly

people from the China Paper Association also said that the main component of imported waste paper is wood pulp, and the paper quality is better than that of domestic recycled waste paper and pulp with straw and reed as raw materials. This kind of domestic pulp mixture is more and the wood pulp fiber is shorter, which is not suitable for the production of high-grade paper and packaging paper. Therefore, many domestic paper-making enterprises gradually turn to imported foreign high-quality waste paper as paper-making raw materials

according to Shanghai shipping company, waste paper import rose in the 1990s. At that time, importers showed off to shipping companies that domestic primary school students' textbook paper came from waste paper from the United States and Northern Europe, which alleviated the paper shortage to a certain extent
