Novel container reduces waste

03 August 2011

A European Commission-funded online technology platform has highlighted an Italian-made high-tech container for paints, coatings, inks and other chemicals designed to reduce hazardous waste by as much as 90%.

Poli-Box Italiana has developed this ‘Eco-Rivest’ product. Its innovation is an inner removable coating made from aluminium and polyethylene, which separates the containers from chemicals, disposing of the need for washing and hence water pollution.
