Demonstration pilots with paint manufacturers in Small and Medium Sized enterprises (SMEs) executed in eight countries [Project Output 1.1]

This output addresses the technical barriers faced by SMEs in replacing lead additives in paint with lead free alternatives. It focuses on seven countries with SMEs producing lead paint: Jordan, Ecuador, Indonesia, Peru, Colombia, China, and Nigeria.

In Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, China and Jordan the project will work through National Cleaner Production Centres (NCPCs) to provide assistance to SMEs on phasing out lead in paint. In Nigeria and Indonesia, the project will work through IPEN partner organisations SraDev and Balifokus respectively. Under this output, the NCPCs will support SMEs during a paint reformulation industry pilot test. They will use technical guidelines on paint reformulation developed by NCPC Serbia.

Activities in this output address the technical barriers faced by SMEs in phasing out lead paint production in favour of less hazardous alternatives, as well as supporting governments in regulating lead paint.
