According to the Voice of China report, the new natio
nal standard for disposable paper cups was officially implemented today. The new natio
nal standard clearly stipulates that paper cups must not be brightened with fluorescent whitening agents during the production process, and raw materials must not use recycled materials. In addition, in order to avoid ink pollution, the new natio
nal standard also stipulates that there should be no printed pattern near the cup mouth and the bottom of the cup.
This morning, the reporter went to Wumei Damaidian in Beijing Asian Games Village. In the sale of disposable cups shelves, a total of more than 10 different varieties, different specifications of paper cup products to choose from. However, at the scene, the reporter did not find a paper cup product that complies with GB/T 27590-2011, the new national standard.
The reporter found that the implementation standards marked on the packaging of the paper cups sold on site were all QB-2294. Upon inquiry, this standard is the industry standard set by the paper cup manufacturer before, and it is quite different from the new national standard. For example, there is no requirement for ink used for the appearance of paper cups.
It is reported that it is difficult to find new national standard paper cups on the market. On the one hand, because the new national standard paper cup is not a mandatory standard, it is a recommended standard. Therefore, these paper cups produced according to the old industry standards can still be sold unrestrictedly in the market for regular sales.
According to industry insiders, although companies nowadays manufacture new paper cups and use new production templates in accordance with the new national standard, because these templates are still being refined and tested, consumers need to wait for new paper cups that meet the new national standard. a period of time.
