Hazards Caused by the Incineration of Waste Paints, Varnishes and Solvents

Inadequate handling, storage, transport, treatment, or landfill disposal releases chemicals into the soil, air, surface and ground waters, plants and the food chain, causing permanent environmental damage. One example of inadequate storage of paint has led to environmental pollution in the Despotovica River near Gornji Milanovac:

Paint, varnish and solvents are particularly hazardous. Their flammability and sensitivity to temperature differences directly affects their expiry date. Certain provisions of laws on flammable and combustible liquids and gases cover these types of chemicals, elaborating how they must be stored. For example, sparks or open flames of any kind is prohibited in such warehouses. The premises must have a prescribed number of fire extinguishers, and maintain a specific temperature, since both excessive and insufficient heating can cause chemical changes. Yet accidents still happen - on New Year’s Eve a few years ago, people in Dubrovnik were surprised to discover a fire had broken out in a paint and varnish warehouse in the historical town centre:
