Inspiration for a greener tanning industry from the Arzignano tanning district.

A better use of chemicals by greenLIFE

Written by

Chemistry is essential to develop goods useful in everyday life. The tanning process is dependent on chemicals and leather quality, softness, resistance and colour developed through technical skills. GreenLIFE’s objective is to develop the tanning process on a semi-industrial scale, tanning with a better use of chemicals. In particular, it wants to develop the oxidative and enzymatic liming process eliminating sulfides and with an easier recovery of liming baths. Moreover, the project wants to develop chrome free leather which will allow easier recovery of baths and better disposal of leather goods at the end of their life-cycle.
