Innovation and Information
Research and Innovation is a key building block in sustainable leather production. There are still exciting opportunities in the greening of leather production through novel processing and chemistries. This may include the development of new, greener chemistries with a preferred toxicological or environmental profile or the application of biotechnology through specific enzymes as examples. Nanotechnology offers significant promise in reducing traditional chemical burdens and research into waste to energy systems continue to provide an opportunity to add value to waste generated through the production cycle.
BLC has a long and successful history of targeted research programmes for the leather value chain and is able to support with client based R&D projects on a range of subjects.
