A huge automation upgrade is supposed to have it running at full production of exclusively water-based products.

Increase in production from 88 million litres to 140 million litres

Guangzhou is the last of four decorative paint plants in China to completely switch to water-based products. State-of-the-art technology will increase its water-based paints production capacity from 88 million liters to 140 million annually.

The plant’s upgrades schall also bring the company closer to its overall sustainability ambitions, which include 100% water reuse at the most water intensive sites by 2030. Once fully operational, Guangzhou will increase water reuse by 70% and reduce waste water by 50%. Significant reductions in electricity use and VOC emissions are also expected.
