The United States raises the standard of formaldehyde

Not long ago, the United States “Standard Wood Products Formaldehyde Act” was officially implemented, which stipulated that the formaldehyde release limit of wood products such as particleboard, medium density fiberboard, and hardwood plywood supplied, sold or manufactured throughout the United States has been greatly improved. Taking particleboard as an example, the formaldehyde emission should not exceed 0.09mg/kg, which is 1000 times higher than the national standard.

The implementation of this “Bill” poses a huge challenge to China’s export of American wood products, and also has a relatively significant impact on the export of wood products in Yantai City. The author got news from the Yantai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau. So far, the city has exported a total of 3004 batches of wood products, with a value of 63.65 million US dollars, which is 11.39% and 15% lower than the same period.

Wood products are mainly exported to Southeast Asia and Europe and the United States

In recent years, the proportion of Yantai’s exports of wood products to the European and American markets has gradually increased, accounting for one-third of the city’s total exports, but this year. The export situation is not optimistic. ‘This aspect is affected by the economic downturn in some European and American countries. On the other hand, it is also affected by the US Standard Commodity Standards for Composite Wood Products. The person in charge of the supervision of the timber supervision department of the Yantai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau said that Southeast Asia and Europe and the United States are currently the main areas for the export of Yantai wood products, with a total volume of over 90%. Wood products exported to Europe and the United States are mainly house decoration, such as doors, windows, floors, etc.; and wood products exported to Southeast Asia and other countries are mainly finished furniture, such as tables and chairs.

Increased automation of production enterprises

In recent years, due to the economic crisis, the export growth rate of wood products in our city has slowed down. Coupled with the impact of foreign environmental and technical barriers, the export enterprises of our city have faced nearly two years. Stress.

‘There are currently 86 companies registered with us, of which there are more than 50 export businesses, which are relatively large. The person in charge of the supervision of the person in charge of the timber inspection of the phytosanitary department said that from the development trend of the past few years, the automation degree of the wood product export enterprises in the city has been significantly improved.

The person in charge of a wood product exporting company said that the idea of ​​doing woodworking with an axe and a saw in the past is outdated. Nowadays, almost every company has added a lot of machines, many programs are not. Workers need to be hands-on, as long as the relevant data is entered, there is a machine to do the work. ‘The production time of some existing parts has been shortened by more than one time, and the improvement of automation is also in line with the development trend of wood products export. As the specifications and scales of various components become more and more complex, manual labor alone is not competent, so improving the automation of production not only improves production efficiency and accuracy, but also saves a lot of labor. There are several small businesses that have been eliminated because of the low level of automation and the difficulty of meeting export needs. ‘

In the first half of the year, 585 batches of unqualified imported wood packaging were detected.

All wood products that want to be exported must be inspected by the Inspection and Quarantine Bureau. According to the person in charge of the supervision of the timber supervision department of the phyto inspector, the general It is necessary to pass nearly ten tests such as animals and plants, weeds, formaldehyde and heavy metals.

‘Regulatory testing of wood products is not only carried out at the time of export. In fact, it has already started when the timber was felled. The person in charge of the supervision of the person in charge of the timber inspection of the phytosanitary department said that from the felled trees to the paints and glues used in the processing, a certain certificate of conformity must be presented in order to pass the inspection smoothly. For example, pure solid wood furniture needs to be tested by formaldehyde, paint, etc. Products exported to EU countries need to be tested by heavy metals and microorganisms. Some developed countries have begun to require some furniture to obtain forest certification. Similarly, imported wood products must undergo rigorous testing before they can enter the market. According to statistics, in the first half of the year, the Yantai Bureau detected a total of 585 batches of unqualified imported wood packaging, and the detection rate increased by 10 percentage points.
