ArsTannery #02-2023: From green transition to circular chemistry
The tanning industry's transition to cleaner, circular production processes is now a given. The recovery of processing waste for the development of bio-based chemicals is the latest frontier in this path aimed at reducing the environmental impact of the tanning process. From green chemistry we move to the principles of circular chemistry with the understanding that a greener leather production environment, both in terms of reducing emissions and waste, is essential for the defense of a truly sustainable industrial system.
