‘Clear coat paint’ in Milan is cheaper than traditional paint
Posted On July 30, 2021
Milan, Italy – Italian authorities are seeking to discourage the use of paint in public buildings and businesses to save money.
Milan city council on Tuesday approved a proposal by local firm Powder Coat Paint to paint the city’s city hall, the city council said in a statement.
The city’s new paint policy was presented to the council after the country’s civil service announced it was to start using powder coat paint in all buildings in the city by 2022.
The decision came after the city, one of the world’s most polluted cities, reported the highest number of air pollutants in the world last year.
“It’s a cost-saving measure and it’s not something we can do alone,” city council member Andrea Carbone told the Italian news agency ANSA.
Milano is the largest city in Italy, with a population of 8 million.
It is a city that, like other Italian cities, has been struggling to contain the pollution caused by the countrys air pollution.
