CLEANTAN® leather tanning technology without waste water

CLEANTAN® – eco-friendly, sustainable, and cost-efficient leather tanning

Leather is a high performance, high quality and natural material. It has unique properties, from high resilience, protection against water, the capacity to hold liquid from the inside and a high customer acceptance. However, its production is anything but efficient in terms of chemical usage. Up to 40 percent of the chrome salts used for leather tanning worldwide find their way into the wastewater, and recycling is technically complex and cost-intensive. With its CLEANTAN® process, Fraunhofer UMSICHT almost completely reduces chromium-polluted wastewater.
