Replacing Plastic with Bamboo: Three-Year Operation to Reduce Plastic Pollution

China is the country with the richest bamboo resources in the world. Bamboo resources, area, and accumulation volume ranks first in the world. There are 837 bamboo species, with an annual output of 150 million tons. Not only that, my country is also the earliest country in the world to know, cultivate and use bamboo. On the pottery unearthed from the Yangshao Cultural site about 6000 years ago, the pictographs of bamboo were found. Chinese literati regarded bamboo as one of the four gentlemen and one of the three friends of the cold, and has a positive and refined mood.

At the first Replacing Plastic with Bamboo international seminar held recently, my country launched the three-year operation of Replacing Plastic with Bamboo. The whole chain and full-chain of bamboo materials, deep processing, product design and manufacturing, and market application expansion are coordinated, which effectively improves the kinetic energy, production capacity, and effectiveness of Replacing Plastic with Bamboo, and help reduce plastic pollution. How to grow large industries in the fields of plastic replacement and other fields with "quite root" in China? Bamboo, everyone has seen, keyboards, and every day, but have the keyboard made by bamboo, have you used it? Jiangxi Yichun Tonggu County has rich bamboo forest resources. On the road of the bamboo industry from extensive processing to deep processing and development, some products even broke through people's imagination. Entering a local enterprise exhibition area, bamboo U disks, bamboo mouse, bamboo calculator, bamboo speaker, bamboo car interior and other products attract people's attention. Lin Wei, an enterprise R & D manager, introduced that the initial bamboo keyboard was that only the framework was bamboo, and the keycaps were plastic. In order to make the keyboard more beautiful and coordinated, the R & D team was born after breaking the model of more than 1,000 models, and it was born.

Lin Wei said: The molding of bamboo keys is very difficult. When it was started, there would be some burrs and was not neat. The formation machine we developed independently can achieve a bamboo strip in, automatic cutting, chamfering, arc, drilling, and one molding. Our keys use a concave arc design, and at the same time use CNC carving technology to sculpt the relevant content directly on the bamboo button. The feel is very good. How to use it will not wear it. High -value -added technology -based bamboo products have made a new road for the bamboo industry. Due to the small knocking sound and long service life, the bamboo keyboard developed by the enterprise was sold for 25,000 units once the market was pushed to the market. After the success of the bamboo keyboard, Lin Wei and the team members continued to closely related, and successively developed more than 80 varieties of bamboo products such as bamboo mouse and bamboo calculators to crack the problem of degradation and environmental pollution after the scrap of plastic digital products. At the same time, it has also opened up foreign markets, selling well in the United States, Canada and other places. Since the International Bamboo and Rattan Organization initiated the "Replacing Plastic with Bamboo" initiative in 2022, our local government has given a lot of preferential policies to bamboo and wood processing enterprises and increased support. We believe that Replacing Plastic with Bamboo is very promising. Call for more enterprises and individuals to join the ranks of "Bamboo Plastic" and actively respond to the country's call.

In the field of daily products, there are many types of bamboo products.
