Innovative chemicals capable of producing high performance leathers (wet processing and finishing) with the lowest environmental impact. The inclusion of Green Chemistry in innovative proposals is recommended.
Innovative technologies in the tanning process, including machines and systems, with performance optimization of the leather and the resources needed to make it.
Standardized analytical methods are necessary for monitoring the regulatory parameters and requirements required by the market. New synergies to create new analytical methods and to manage updates for chemicals and leather.
Innovative scenarios and new proposals for wastewater treatment, sludge management. Use of LCA to assess the environmental impacts of the tanning product and chemicals used in the process. Evaluation of new proposals for recovery, valorisation of by-product and other environmental aspects including emissions, through the LCA approach.
