The production of virgin paint is very carbon intensive, with the UK producing circa 600 million litres per annum. Roughly 10% of that material ends up in our waste streams with only 2% being recycled. The remaining 98% is mainly sent to incineration destroying perfectly good material including polymers from the paint pots which is in very short demand world wide. A lot of paint pots generated within construction are discarded in skips contaminating other material that could other wise be reused / recycled.
