According to the statistics of China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing, there are about 100 million pallets in China, and they are increasing at an annual rate of about 10, 000. With the application of this technology and the acceleration of market recognition, the market share of plastic wood pallet is expected to be reached within this year. Considering that the market share has certain volatility and uncertainty due to various unpredictable factors, the most conservative situation is calculated according to the market share of this product. The size of pallet used by different products is different. At present, the price of wooden pallets on the Chinese market ranges from tens of yuan to thousands of yuan. According to the minimum price of wood pallet and the price of plastic wood pallet, the direct economic output value can be up to 100 million yuan per year. According to the situation abroad, the profit margin of this product is at least above. Therefore, after normal production, plastic wood tray net profit can reach more than 100 million yuan. Therefore, the economic benefit of plastic wood tray is very great.

China Plastic wood tray is a new type of tray which is produced by mixing agricultural (forest) residues with waste plastics in a certain proportion. From the comprehensive performance point of view, the plastic wood tray has abandoned the defects of other kinds of tray products. It has the advantages of high strength, good Bremsstrahlung, no deformation, no moisture absorption, no mildew, anti-decay candle, anti-aging and easy processing, recoverable, pollution-free and so on. But the price is lower than other kinds of trays. More importantly, the main raw material of plastic wood tray is agricultural (forest) residue, which can turn waste into treasure and save a lot of wood forest resources. With the comprehensive promotion of plastic wood pallet application, the market acceptance of this new plastic wood pallet product is becoming more and more. The larger it is, the more people will change the habit of using pallets. The new environmental protection plastic wood tray can save a great deal of wood resources, be beneficial to the protection and utilization of forest resources, and promote the construction of forestry production environment. The service life of plastic wood tray is more than twice as long as that of traditional wood tray and can be recycled.


Technology needs to be upgraded. In recent years, plastic wood composites have become the focus of attention and development all over the world, but the management situation of many domestic enterprises is not optimistic. Experts have pointed out that the production technology of plastic-wood composite materials needs to be upgraded, and the production process of the laminates mainly includes:

Extrusion process, hot pressing process and extrusion molding process. Different production processes, from the different composite plate specifications, its application is slightly different, extrusion molding production process and hot pressing production process can get customer needs of any size, The extrusion production process is not allowed; from different uses, the plates produced by the various extrusion molding production processes are generally used and decorative plates, The composite plates produced by hot pressing and extrusion are mainly applied to the load-bearing plates.

At present, most of the domestic wood plastic enterprises adopt the first technology, which needs to be upgraded. When it comes to technical problems, there are some inherent defects in plastic-wood composite, such as its initial property is lower than that of its parent material, and the properties of the composite are easy to change and so on. With the development of application field, how to improve the properties of plastic-wood materials has become the focus of scientific research. In addition, the development of special equipment for plastic wood composite materials and the proportion of auxiliaries also need to be studied. At the same time, to realize the industrialization and scale of plastic-wood composite technology, it is necessary to effectively solve the problem of recycling and classification of waste materials.

The demand for WPC trays in China is increasing year by year. As a new type of environmental protection tray, plastic wood tray has excellent performance, and green environmental protection is more suitable for the green packaging industry, and is gradually entering the line of sight. Plastic wood tray has the characteristics of small pollution, acid and alkali resistance, waterproof, corrosion resistance, high strength, recyclable and so on. The raw material of plastic wood tray is filled with natural fiber in reinforced thermoplastic, compacted by high temperature and high pressure, non-toxic and odorless, renewable after use, it is 100% “green” environmental protection product, and can be recycled. Plastic wood composite tray can be reused and reused Harvesting and utilization, biodegradable, protecting forest resources and ecological environment, is a new type of environment-friendly material in the new century, and its tray has reached a certain service life. It can be recycled by the existing waste pallet logistics recovery channel, which will not have an impact on the environment. Therefore, the ecological benefit of the new environmental protection plastic wood tray is also very significant.

The promotion and application of new environmental protection plastic wood pallet will help the development of logistics industry in China. At present, due to the low level of tray technology, the low trays interchangeability and the low social sharing, the logistics industry in China has frequent pallet renewal in the process of logistics operation, which on the one hand makes the pallet wear and tear. More importantly, when the tray is damaged, the logistics operation has to replace the pallet frequently, which reduces the efficiency of the logistics operation. The new plastic wood pallet technology can greatly reduce the damage rate in the use of pallet, accelerate the construction of standardization and generality of pallet, promote the development of logistics industry, and bring about the development of the whole industry economy. Combined Look, the economic benefits, social benefits and ecological benefits of the new environment-friendly plastic pallet are very significant.

Compared with some developed countries, the development of plastic-wood composites in China is relatively slow. Although the state has issued a series of policies to encourage the development of plastic-wood composites, but due to the constraints of various factors, As a result, the development of plastic-wood composites in China cannot be developed along a healthy path, restricting the majority of people in the country, even some competent departments, not knowing much about plastic-wood composites. Not to mention to improve the technical level of plastic-wood composite materials. The application of plastic-wood composites has its limitations. The practical application range of plastic-wood composite materials is very wide. In packaging and warehousing industry, pallet, packing box, centralized loader can be made. Tools, warehouse pads, cargo racks, etc.

Plastic wood tray has more environmental and economic benefits as well as social benefits. The plastic-wood composite has high strength, good environmental protection, and is a regenerative resource. It is an ideal raw material for processing and manufacturing a new generation of pallets. The development of a new generation of pallet with the mixture of plant fiber and plastic as raw material has good economic, social and ecological benefits. The pallet made from plant fiber and plastic raw materials as main production material has a wide application prospect.
