Discover the science and chemistry of Zeology

In October we have launched our revolutionary new tanning agent called Zeology. Chrome-free, heavy metal-free and aldehyde-free. In an industry where the demand for transparency is higher than ever, we have now taken the next step in sharing the scientific information about our innovation.

Introducing… the science of Zeology

We are airing two films about the need and the chemistry of Zeology with the aim to inspire leather technicians, tanneries, leather manufacturers, brands and designers. The two films are suitable for all viewers but differ on the level of complexity. We present:

University of Zeology

Being transparent and sharing our knowledge, that is the aim of Nera. That is why we have set up the University of Zeology. The university is a digital environment for tanneries, brands, designers, OEM’s and everyone else who wants to learn more about sustainable tanning. It contains whitepapers, position papers, video’s, downloads and more, available for everyone. New articles are added weekly.
