Excalibur reduces risk of fire in dry shaving

Dry shaving can be a very hazardous tanning process.

Compared to wet-blue or wet-white, the shavings from dry leather can easily catch fire. The very thin and dry leather shavings are sucked in by the exhaust system together with oxygen from the air. This mixture is easily inflammable. 


Pyrolysis project to reduce chrome containing wastes

JBS Couros, the worlds largest leather maker, is looking at new ways where it can manage its chrome containing wastes and is constantly seeking better uses for this material. A good example is the project for the recycling of wet-blue shavings which last year won the Kurt Politzer Innovation Award, sponsored by ABIQUIM.
