Inpelsa and Dercosa tanneries started the application of biopolymers on leather

The Spanish tanneries, INPELSA and DERCOSA, have started the application of biopolymers on leather.

The two tanneries, specialized in production of split-suede and goat/sheep leathers, started to use the BIOPOL products in their own application recipes with the aim of replacing the conventional chemicals and making a range of leather articles comparable to the ones produced within their traditional production processes.

These activities will foresee the fine-tuning of the recipes until the implementation of the application processes at industrial scale. The application of biopolymers on leather will be monitored through the inspection of specific parameters in the process wastewater in order to evaluate the environmental benefits led by the BIOPOL products.
