Official Opening of Sports Facilities

Ukraine - October 06, 2017 -

In September 2017, Dow team members in Ukraine and the National Olympic Committee (NOC) of Ukraine completed a competition to identify the best ecological project among 5th and 6th graders in Ukraine with the New Leader Program. The all-Ukrainian New Leader Program was initiated by NOC six years ago. The winners have been working on the project implementation for three months. The winners held the official openings of the sport grounds in several schools in Ukraine, and Dow solutions were used during repair work.

Winning projects were based on the need improvement in sports facilities within the schools along with additional work in areas of energy efficiency, water purification and general upgrades. The following schools were selected as winners of the competition:

  • School 1-3, Kamenskoye, Nikolskiy district, Dnepropetrovskiy region. Dow coating material UCAR™ Latex-420G was used for painting the walls of the sports ground at the school.
  • School 1-3, Lintsi, Uzhgorodskiy district, Zakarpatskiy region. The surface of the facility was upgraded with a special safe covering made with rubber pellets and VORAMER™ MR 1045 Polyurethane Binder.
  • School 2-3, Bashtanka, Nikolaevskaya region. Dow PRIMAL™ HG-98 and Dow UCAR™ Latex DL-450 were used for coating of the sport court’s walls and floors.
