Reduce environmental impact of a paint manufacturer


Cleaning solvents are disrupting output, because they must be used and removed before each new batch of paint is produced


Output is increased through re-formulating the paint ingredients so that they not only produce paint, but also chemically absorb the residual cleaning solvents that then become an ingredient in the next batch Cleaning solvents now actually boost paint production because, in blending with the paint ingredients, they no longer have to be removed when each new batch of paint is produced

Hint 1

Think about how you might assimilate or eliminate any problematic components or ingredients in your production process, with the aim of ensuring that it flows more smoothly

Hint 2

Think how you might fully exploit the laws of chemistry, or perhaps physics, to optimize the composition of your products or services, and to increase the output of your production process
