Hijacked at the WLC

During the World Leather Congress last week (August 29) I was asked to chair, or moderate, the final session and subsequent discussion panel. It was entitled ‘The Tanners Response’ and included a couple of globally respected tanners plus representatives from ZDHC, who are increasingly being seen as well aligned to the leather industry and Lanxess. The session was to end with a discussion for which two others took the stage. 


Response to The Toggler article on chromium

Dear Editor, 

I read your Toggler article in ILM May/June 2014, page 46, “Goodbye to chromium and all that”, with great interest and would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to respond. The article correctly defends chrome as a tanning material, which is excellent. Regarding comments on former “wet (white) something” with recent “next generation” wet-white technology developments, some of the mentioned arguments are no longer valid.
