11. ENVIROWASH PAINT DISPOSAL SYSTEM RECOMMENDATION

We strongly recommend that the Midas Envirowash Paint Disposal System be used on site for the cleansing of tools used in conjunction with all Midas water-based paints, as no paint should be washed down the storm-water drains.
PAINT DISPOSAL SYSTEM
Midas Paints Tygervalley actively strives to be at the development forefront of environmentally friendly coatings in South Africa. We have incorporated the use of world best practices in the development of our technical formulae.
As a result the company can confidently claim the following concerning their paints:
Are lead-free
Most fall well within the European Union EU2010 & GBCSA standards for VOC’s
Many products have been re-formulated without hazardous components such as Glycol, APEO and Formaldehyde
The product range includes zero VOC coatings as well as others with significantly reduced levels.

Midas Paints Tygervalley is committed to environmental protection and out of this concern the company has developed the “Envirolite Paint Disposal System” to ensure that waste paint chemicals and residues from application systems are managed and disposed of in a safe, responsible and appropriate manner. This is essentially a mobile wastewater treatment system which effectively treats and contains wastewater from the washing of used brushes, rollers, containers and any other application system components.
The system has the following advantages:
It is the main component of the site environmental management plan (EMP) for the painting operation
It prevents contamination of the:
Storm water system by preventing spillage onto the ground surface since storm-water enters the environment untreated
Groundwater since spillage onto un-surfaced ground causes seepage of pollutants into the water-table where it is dispersed throughout, negatively impacting the groundwater quality
oWastewater discharged to the wastewater (sewage) treatment works.

Since the unit separates water from sludge it reduced the solids waste discharged into the sewers preventing blockages in the sewers and reduces the sludge burden at the wastewater treatment works. Since much of the COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) load is contained in the sludge it would also reduce this burden at the treatment works. The sludge is separated and de-watered in the unit and can safely be disposed at a general landfill since there are no residual hazardous materials present.
The unit is a definite advantage to the treatment of this type of wastewater by lending structure to what is still largely a haphazard operation which negatively impacts the environment. It ensures a safe and responsible disposal solution for waste and wastewater from these operations and complies with the provisions of the National Environmental Management Act (National Waste Management Act) and the National Water Act.

Basic Operational Procedure
The system consists of a wash basin with spray guns which needs to be attached to a water point. The paint/water mix from the basin flows into a catchment tank. Once the tank is full a proprietary combination of chemicals are blended with the mixture in the catchment tank. This leads to the flocculation and finally settlement of the solids portion of the paint. Thus you are left with a liquid layer which is tapped off via a filtering process free of hazardous ingredients (as listed in Schedule 2 of the Municipal Waste Water By-law) and either reused (in the wash system)or released into the sewer system compliant with all Municipal regulations. The sludge portion is pumped into filter bags and allowed to dry. This dried cake can then be disposed of as non-hazardous general waste. The system requires no power source as both the pump and mixing are manual operations.
