Raw values were drawn from the EEA & ETC/SCP's NAMEA project. (The original calculations use Environmentally Extended Inout-Output Analysis (EE-IOA) on Material Flow Accounts for EU-27 as a block. DMI associated with 60 NACE product categories were then allocated to COICOP categories using a transformation matrix developed for the project). Intensities are calculated according to pressure per Euro at year 2000 purchasers prices. COICOP expenditures were taken directly from Eurostat figures

The best way to dispose of paint is to deliver it to your local specialist waste recycling centre. If you do not have access to one of these, let the paint dry fully, adding sawdust or cat litter as needed, before putting it in the dustbin. Don't throw it down the drain, because it is toxic and it interferes with the processes of water treatment plants.
