Leather researchers will discuss the key findings of More Sustainable Chemistry along the Leather Supply Chains in this free webinar on November 16.

The project developed a scenario for more sustainable leather chemistry in 2035, with sub-projects added to address specific leverage points.

Results of the project have included a sustainability assessment tool for leather manufacturing processes, an IT-based approach to report chemicals used in supply chains, an assessment of the feasibility of the chemical synthesis of a sugar-based potential tanning agent with milli/microreactors and a ‘Handbook on Leather Design for Sustainable Development’.

The webinar will position the project results in the context of current EU developments related to Sustainable Products Policies and will feature a keynote presentation from the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA).

The conference will be in English and will take place from 10:00-12:00 CET on November 16, 2022. Find out more here.
