The services and products under this virtual banner will include:
- Life Cycle Assessment and Simulation: a complete suite of LCA products and services for the leather industry. Within this, Spin360 will launched the Process simulation tool at APLF Dubai, a fully web-based application that allows the evaluation of leather tanning recipes in terms of process efficiency, environmental impact, cost, technical and quality aspects
- Smart Drum: the first and only LCA-embedded patented drum, according to Spin360, empowering a scientific approach to tanning, produced in cooperation with Italprogetti

Sustainableleather.com will also host existing services from the company such as CSR and compliance platform Verified&Certified Steps (VCS) and leather traceability platform Map&Trace.
Spin360 will be located at booth H3-B02-IT, inside the Italy – UNIC pavilion at APLF Dubai, which will take place from March 30 – April 1.
