Dulux uses recycled paint to cut carbon footprint

October 9, 2019 EcoVadis FR

Manufacturer Dulux Trade has created a recycled paint to tackle paint waste and reduce its carbon footprint.  Dulux has worked with resource management firm Veolia to develop a matt emulsion paint made from 35% recycled paint. The recycled paint is taken from leftover white paint found in tins after use. Veolia collects the paint from household waste recycling centres and “refines and filters” it at a re-manufacturing plant. This is then transported to a Dulux manufacturing facility to be mixed with new paint, which is “re-engineered and tested extensively” to make the Evolve product.
