Settling Wastes into Sustainable forms

EncapsUwaste UK has developed a novel technology looking to combat the concerns of the disposal of hazardous waste paint. Disposal of waste paint is a significant issue because of the potential release of heavy metal contaminants and the consequent impact on human health and the environment. EncapsUwaste UK seeks to reduce the leachable fraction of the harmful and toxic compounds found in paint waste using a novel ultrasonic micro-encapsulation process.

Salient Features:

  • Turns hazardous waste to a non-hazardous inert waste
  • Highly leachable metal content encapsulated
  • Reduced volume
  • Reduced odour
  • The resultant product can be reused in the construction industry (e.g. bricks, road-fill material) or incorporated back into the paint manufacturing process.
