Proposal number EXAW-1999-01230

AcronymSAVEWATERTAN

Proposal titleA new process to saving water and diminishing pollutionin leather tanning

AbstractNew environmental models based on sustainable growth an a concern for the environment

imposechanges in water consumption. Our priority objective in the proposal is to design

a new process that will enable water consumption to tall at least 25% with respect to

current processes. Leather quality should not suffer any kind of decrease in quality as a

result of the implimentation of the process. As secondary objectives, we aim to decrease

salt consumption in hide preserving methods in at least 15%. Also, pollution generated will

be diminished as a result. To achieve the objectives presented in this project we will

develop a process ranging from hide preservation to tanning. We will optimise the relation

between water savings and leather quality in each operation. To do so, we will consider the

final destination of the leather being manufactured.
