Tikkurila’s production generates various types of waste: solids removed from the cleaning water in waterborne paint production, obsolete or out-of-date raw materials, discontinued products as well as packaging waste. Production also generates some hazardous waste, namely paint waste and residues or unsellable subpar products.
Tikkurila monitors its material usage and the amount of waste. We are constantly striving to improve raw material efficiency in our production. Waste is recycled as accurately as possible. Solid and liquid waste unsuitable for re-use or recycling is disposed of in accordance with waste management instructions. Whenever possible, we recycle production waste back into our process, taking into consideration the strict quality requirements we have for our products.
