TFL and Novozymes reaffirm strategic partnership - Both organizations have signed exclusive agreements for continued cooperation on existing enzyme solutions and joint innovations
Leading leather chemicals company TFL Ledertechnik GmbH and Novozymes A/S, a leading global biotechnology company, have reaffirmed their strategic partnership by signing exclusive agreements for continued cooperation on existing enzyme solutions and joint innovations for the leather industry.
Novozymes' leading expertise in enzyme technology research is ideally complemented by TFL's long-standing global expertise in leather process development.
Sustainability has become one of the mega-trends - also for leather production. Enzymes offer solutions to reduce waste in the tannery and optimize the production process.
As a result of joint innovation, TFL and Novozymes have developed the Peltec X-Zyme® product range, an innovative technology that offers benefits beyond traditional enzymes used in the leather industry.
This innovative technology can significantly reduce the levels of chemicals, including hazardous chemicals, to an extent that has not previously been possible with traditional solutions. In particular, this results in remarkably improved environmental performance such as sludge volume and COD.
In addition, the jointly developed products enable a new enzymatic process that significantly improves leather quality. More information on tfl.com
