ArsTannery #03/2022: Technology in the spotlight, and more

From new technologies that you will find at the next Simac Tanning Tech 2022 exhibition, to advanced devices and systems that improve the environmental performance of machinery, to technologies that reduce the environmental impact of cattle farms. Let’s talk about technological innovations, and more.

With just a few months to go before the important appointment with Simac Tanning Tech 2022, the event dedicated to leather technology scheduled for September, in this issue you will find some previews of the innovations that will be presented at the fair by the main mechanical-tanning companies.

The focus is on advanced devices and systems that improve the control of all leather processing operations, increasing productivity and improving the quality of the finished product, but which, above all, mark important advancements in sustainability through innovations capable of improving the environmental performance of machinery by reducing water and energy consumption, waste and emissions of all kinds.

Speaking of emissions, the following pages also look at methane emissions caused by ruminants: an international forum organised by JBS and Silvateam has turned the spotlight on new opportunities offered by research and technology to reduce the environmental impact of cattle farms with the introduction of special additives in the diets of animals.

This will be followed by a report from APLF Dubai, previews of the EuroCongress Vicenza 2022, an article on the research carried out by the Italian Leather Research Institute dedicated to sludge and wastewater, and a lot of news from the chemical tanning sector with the latest market news launched by the main companies in the sector.

  • EuroCongress Vicenza 2022, an unmissable appointment
  • Simac Tanning Tech 2022

ArsTannery #04-2023: The substantive sustainability of the Italian tannery

There is a system that seems to focus everything on “formal sustainability” and there are those who, like the Italian tannery, represent an example of “substantial sustainability.” These were the words of President Fabrizio Nuti at the last UNIC assembly, who reiterated how there are not many industries whose raw material is derived from a waste from another supply chain. Italian tanners, moreover, have gone further by putting in place “a recycling and reuse chain of their production waste in tanneries that has no equal, treating and reusing it for the cosmetics industry, the food industry, agriculture and construction. The result is a circularity rate of more than 99 percent.”
