Wastewater Recycling System Introduced

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Comment | More

AkzoNobel announced the launch of the Glidden Professional™ Wash System, which separates water-borne paint into clear, reusable water and solid waste, and is described as a “revolutionary solution to on-site cleanup” that minimizes problems related to dealing with wastewater.

The company says the wash system is the first of its kind in the U.S., can help prevent paint washings from entering waterways, and may contribute to credits under the LEED EBOM MR Credit 9 category, part of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED green-building rating system. The company recommends, however, that state or local authorities should be consulted regarding proper waste-disposal regulations.
 
Harris Cloutier, vice president, Glidden Professional Paint Centers, called the wash system “a simple solution for commercial painting contractors seeking to engage in sustainable practices.”

The company said the system reflects its commitment to developing “sustainable solutions and reducing the environmental impact of products over the entire product lifecycle, while keeping in mind current regulations, and anticipating future requirements.”
 
AkzoNobel’s Glidden Professional™ branded paints are sold through Glidden Professional Paint Centers and authorized independent dealers. The paint centers also offer contractors expert advice to simplify product selection, delivery, and job-site cleanup.
