How can enterprises do a good job in plasticiser pollution prevention and control?

The use of plasticisers can improve plasticity, ensure processing efficiency, in a number of industries with a wide range of applications, such as our daily contact with more PVC, rubber and other products, plasticisers are indispensable additives. We all know that plasticisers are harmful to the human body, our country strictly prohibit plasticisers added to food, but plasticisers may still enter the human body through indirect ways, such as food packaging plasticisers precipitated contamination of food. Therefore, the relevant departments strictly require enterprises to do a good job of pollution prevention and control, to reduce the risk to a lower level, so how do enterprises do a good job of plasticiser pollution prevention and control? Next OSI editorial combined with the relevant policies to explain.

Enterprise to do a good job of plasticiser pollution prevention and control methods

1. Strengthen the control of raw and auxiliary materials

Enterprises need to establish and strictly implement the raw and auxiliary materials supplier audit and purchase inspection records system, the procurement of oil and grease, alcohol food raw materials, if you can not provide proof of qualification, you need to carry out plasticiser project inspection, inspection and qualified before being used in the production and processing processes.

2.Strengthen the control of food-related products

Enterprises need to establish and strictly implement the food-related product purchase inspection record system, not only to check the supplier’s license and product certification, can not provide proof of plastic packaging materials, gaskets, etc. need to carry out plasticiser project inspection, the results of the qualified can be used only; prohibit the use of plastic packaging materials containing plasticisers, gaskets, etc. packaging of fats, oils and wines, so as not to trigger the plasticiser Plasticiser contamination.

3. Strengthen the prevention and control of the production and operation process of oily and alcoholic foods.

During the production and operation of grease and alcohol food, equipment and facilities, gaskets, pipes, containers and tools made of plastic shall not contain plasticisers, and enterprises are encouraged to use equipment and facilities, pipes, containers and tools made of stainless steel, so as to prevent contamination from food contact. In the storage, transport, delivery, sales and other links should also be strengthened control to prevent plasticiser contamination due to high storage temperature, transport and delivery of improper problems.


I. The role and use of plasticisers


Plasticiser is a kind of additives, will be added to the polymer polymerisation system can increase their plasticity, flexibility or expansion, so that it is easier to process, and bring better performance, help enterprises to improve production efficiency, reduce production costs.


Plasticisers have a wide range of applications and are indispensable for polymers and their related packaging, automotive, electronic information, building materials, chemical and other industries. Like our daily work or life can be encountered in a variety of plastic products, rubber products, paints, coatings, paints and so on have the figure of plasticizers.

Second, plasticisers into the human body pathway and hazards

1. Pathway

At present, it is strictly prohibited to add plasticisers in food, so what is the way plasticisers enter the human body? Most of the cases are related to the precipitation of plasticisers, some products due to plasticisers exceeding the standard or use of plasticisers that do not meet the standard may cause the precipitation of plasticisers in some specific cases, once the person is in contact with the increased risk of entry into the body, posing a threat to health. For example, toddlers chewing on toys and people eating food contaminated by plastic packaging may cause plasticisers to enter the body.

2. Hazard

Studies have shown that plasticisers into the human body may be harmful to male reproductive health, promote early maturation of women, increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, long-term large-scale intake of liver cancer and so on.

Third, how to avoid plasticisers into the human body

For manufacturers to strictly control the amount of plasticisers, the use of plasticisers in line with the relevant standards, especially food packaging, medical packaging, etc., in strict accordance with the relevant requirements of the use of low-toxicity, non-toxicity, good stability of plasticisers. For us personally can start from some details, try to reduce contact with plastic products, reduce the use of plastic wrap and other parcels of food, using glass bottles to contain cooking oil, spices, etc., when buying plastic products to carefully check the product qualifications and safety information, etc., and put an end to the three-free products.
