PPG, base in Pittsburgh announced their plans to completely phase out the use of lead in its products by 2020!
Who is the PPG?
- Global supplier of paints, coatings, specialty materials, chemicals, glass and fiberglass
- Operates in more than 70 countries
- Work in much of the industrial side of work and construction
- Currently does not include lead in any consumer products
- Lead-based paint has been banned in residential use since 1978
Targeting Industrial Coatings
“I think it’s important to clarify PPG does not use lead in consumer products anywhere in the world,” notes Mark Silvey, PPG’s senior manager of corporate communications. “Where consumers or our partners are walking into stores and using those paints to paint residential buildings, there is lead in those products.”
The only products with lead containing them now are industrial applications like certain aerospace coatings.
They have noted that is has exceeded many of its previous 2020 goals and is on track to meet several others.
They are constantly increasing their goals for sustainable product
- Greenhouse gas reduction
- Spill Reduction
- And several other metrics
With operations in over 70 countries and around 46,600 employees, they has reported net sales of $15.3 billion in 2015.
After years of these issues going on, we decided to make a stop to the madness. That is when Blastox® and Bantox® was brought to light and used in:
- Lead paint abatement
- Soil remediation
- Foundries waste stabilization.
It is a chemically base product that allows for the stabilization of heavy metals like lead and others to a non-hazardous waste. This not only allows the waste to be disposed as non-hazardous but it protects the environment and the people from contamination.
