TFL presents a range of booklets regarding environmental issues facing the leather industry. With practical knowledge on various topics we aim to provide our customers with valuable information on ecological topics for their day-to-day business.
The TFL environment-expertise is compiled in the TFL ECO Guidelines, a set of practical booklets, providing valuable information on important topics of ecology in leather manufacturing.
This publication is the third in series that TFL is preparing in order to enhance the understanding of ecological aspects in leather manufacturing. The tanning industry must comply with a rapidly increasing set of regulations and commercial specifications, which restrict the use of chemical substances considered to have hazardous or toxic properties. The issue “Restricted substances in leather” presents the topic in a clear and easy to understand manner for people working in tanneries and the leather industry.
This publication is the second of a series that TFL is preparing in order to enhance the understanding of environmental and ecological aspects in leather manufacturing. Worldwide there is a lot of emphasis on operating in a manner that is compatible with the best ecological and environmental practices. This requires many tanneries and supply industries to have a better understanding of the whole ecological process of leather manufacturing from the start to the end.
The first booklet features solutions for the reduction of COD/BOD in tannery waste water. The focus is to show in a clear and easy to understand manner, how much and at which process steps the COD/BOD levels can be reduced by means of modifications of the process and the chemicals being used.
