January/February 2022The January/February 2022 edition of the magazine includes the regular Talking Point feature, where ILM asks leading experts about a specific hot topic. In this issue, we asked five people from a cross-section of the leather industry why they believe that leather is treated so poorly on the Higg Material Sustainability Index.

Consultant Technical Editor Karl Flowers examines DNA barcoding as a traceability method for leather, whether machine learning can take leather production to the next level and discusses the benefits of switching to more bio-based chemistry in leather manufacturing.

Meanwhile, Daniele Bacchi of Italian tannery machinery specialists Italprogetti tells ILM all about its ongoing projects in tanneries around the world and reveals how the company managed to adapt to the difficulties of working in a global industry during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Also in this issue, ILM interviews the organisers of the upcoming IULTCS EuroCongress event, which is set to take place in Vicenza, Italy in September, to find out more about the technical and social programme they are preparing.
