The Project

Environmentally friendly natural products instead of chemical products in the degreasing phase of the tanning cycle
Project acronym: ECODEFATTING

The present project aims at demonstrating the use of an innovative technology for the defatting phase of the leather tanning process, with the goal of producing new or existing products with a significantly higher eco-sustainability profile.

The specific technical goal of the project consists in the demonstration of use of a new category of products of natural origin, capable of substituting chlorinated currently used in the defatting phases during the leather tanning cycle.

The main environmental, social and economical goal of ECODEFATTING project will be the replacement of current commercial chemical and toxic products with natural products in the defatting phase of the tannery cycle, in order to establish a significantly eco-sustainable and convenient business for companies.
