Kansai Nerolac is to build a large-scale emulsion paint plant at a 50-acre
site at Hosur, near Bangalore in southern India. Work on the US$ 83-million
facility is due to begin in February and finish in 2010. Output capacity
will be raised in three steps to a total of 5,000 – 6,000 tonnes per month,
which will take Kansai Nerolac’s total paint output to 13,000 tonnes per
month when counted with the company’s existing Indian locations at Berwal,
Lote and Kanpur. The new facility will produce coatings for automotive uses
in addition to those for architectural applications.
Parent Kansai Paint is aiming to have 50% of its sales from overseas within
the next three years. In fiscal 2006, just over one third of its sales were
in non-Japanese markets.

PPG Launches 'Green' ZIRCOBOND
TROY, Mich., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PPG Industries has announced
the launch of a new, environmentally-responsible automotive pretreatment
technology at CAMI Automotive's production facility in Ingersoll, Ont.,
Canada. CAMI, an independently incorporated joint venture of Suzuki Motor
Corporation and General Motors of Canada Ltd., began processing vehicles
with Zircobond pretreatment in early January and moved to full-scale
production Jan. 14.
Metal pretreatment cleans and provides corrosion protection to automotive
body surfaces. However, traditional zinc-phosphate pretreatment processes
generate sludge containing heavy metals such as nickel, zinc and manganese,
making them subject to environmental regulations.
As a result, PPG has devloped Zircobond pretreatment, an alternative
pretreatment based on zirconium chemistry and a proprietary blend of
additives. Zircobond pretreatment cuts sludge byproduct from the
pretreatment process by at least 80 percent compared to zinc-phosphate-based
products, and it can be used in existing pretreatment lines.
Additionally, estimates show that facilities using Zircobond pretreatment
can realize annual savings of up to several hundred thousand dollars on
energy, maintenance and labor costs. Savings potential is even greater in
greenfield applications, where fewer process stages could generate as much
as several million dollars in savings on new facility capital investments.<more>

Occupational exposure as a painter is “carcinogenic to humans”
Epidemiological studies of painters have consistently found small but
significant increases in the risk of lung cancer and bladder cancer. In
addition, several studies of painters have found increased levels of genetic
Four of five case-control studies found significant increases in childhood
leukaemia associated with maternal exposure before or during pregnancy,
although findings were inconsistent for lymphatic and haematopoietic cancers
in the painters themselves.
Painters are exposed to numerous chemical solvents, pigments, and additives.
They can also be exposed to other workplace hazards such as asbestos and
crystalline silica. The available information is not specific enough to
identify particular agents as the cause of the excess lung or bladder
cancers. It also cannot be determined whether the cancer risks have
increased or decreased with changes in the solvents, pigments, and additives
used in paints.<more>
OSHA Inquiry Continues into
Painter Deaths at Hydro Plant
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration is continuing to investigate
the accident that led to the deaths of five painters at a Colorado

Action against Bajaj Auto,
MPCB has issued so-called
show-cause notices to the two firms asking them to provide reasons why their
two plants in the state should not be closed for this violation
Mumbai: Maharashtra’s pollution control agency has initiated action against
Bajaj Auto Ltd and Kansai Nerolac Paints Ltd for allegedly violating rules
related to the disposal of hazardous waste.
The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) has issued so-called
show-cause notices to the two firms asking them to provide reasons why their
two plants in the state should not be closed for this violation. The notices
were sent on 24 January after the board found 50 tonnes of paint spilt near
the Aurangabad plant of Bajaj Auto.
“MPCB has taken a note of the violation of hazardous waste rules by these
industrial units. We have sent show- cause notices to both the companies,”
said a senior board official, who did not wish to be identified.
MPCB has given 15 days to both the firms to respond. However, it rarely asks
firms to close their units; usually the firms have to pay a fine. According
to the MPCB official, it levies a penalty of Rs17,000 per tonne of paint
Bajaj Auto’s vice-president (corporate) C.P. Tripathi said that the spillage
of paint had occurred when miscreants had tampered with a consignment of 185
barrels of paint that was being sent back to its supplier in Mumbai. “The
spillage occurred when miscreants tampered with the paint barrels, far away
from our plant. We are not responsible for it in anyway. It’s the
contractor’s responsibility,” he added. <more>
