CIRCOULEUR has created the first and unique paint recycling branch in France. The company manufactures and sells recycled acrylic paints, finally bringing Circular Economy in the paint manufacturing industry. Million liters of unused waterborne paint are incinerated each year (28 million in France alone), leading to high release of carbon in the atmosphere. At the same time, large quantities of raw materials are still getting extracted to manufacture new paints. CIRCOULEUR stops this waste of resources and carbon emissions by reusing this paint waste as a material to make new and more environmentally friendly paints. CIRCOULEUR paints are high quality decorative paints with trending colors, to be applied on inner walls, and they are meeting the growing demand for products that are more respectful to the environment. They come in 2 ranges: one for consumers and one for building professionals. They both cut carbon emission by a factor of 12, offer a better indoor air quality, and allows creating new local jobs in the Social Economy.
