The project results very interesting because involves a high environmental impact sector and because it contributes sensibly to the technological advancement of the whole tanning sector in the environmental way. The new process enable the laying of the pigment only on the surface to be treated, using only the necessary quantity of colour and water, through optical and electronic controls of the whole system.
On the contrary, at the state of art leathers are treated in closed cabins in which the atmosphere, full of coloured micro-droplet, transfers the pigment on the surface, with high waste of solvents, water and raw material of over 80%.
Use of natural dyes instead of the solvent based ones;
Reduction of energy and water consumption (-75% and -95%);
Obtaining a product equal to the traditional one but preferred by the market for its environmental characteristics.
