Enzymes for leather & textiles
Leather and textile manufacturers are under ever-increasing pressure to make high-quality products in a cost-effective way. They also need to make their production more sustainable. Our solutions and services can help.
Leather - generating value from waste
In the EU alone, 218 million pigs, sheep, goats, beef, and dairy cattle are slaughtered every year. Without the leather industry, the hides and skins of animals like these would - for the most part - become slaughterhouse waste. By reducing waste levels, leather production improves the sustainability of livestock processing.
More sustainable than fossil-fuel based alternatives
Leather is also organic, durable and readily biodegradable. The material itself, and its by-products, can be recycled. All that makes it inherently more sustainable than many fossil-fuel based alternatives. Our products help your customers reduce energy and chemical usage in leather production. That makes the industry even more sustainable.
Textiles – closing the fashion loop
The environmental impact of fashion is big news, and consumers are taking notice. Many are consciously choosing garments with a smaller environmental footprint. Improving a garment’s sustainability means making changes right across its lifecycle. That’s where your mill – and our products – can play a key role in closing the fashion loop.
Greener garments and a better sustainability profile
Our products help you save water and energy. They can also replace harsh chemicals to help you achieve cleaner effluent. Their gentle action prevents waste by reducing damage to your raw materials. They allow you to ‘upgrade’ raw materials and even produce textiles with a longer lifespan. Fashion brands can pass all these sustainability benefits onto consumers. The result is greener garments and a better sustainability profile.
