Chrome Free Tanning

ABOUT WET WHITE LEATHER TANNING

Wet white tanning is an eco-friendly, organic tanning method which considerably reduces the negative environmental impact of leather tanning.This fairly new method of tanning has been gaining popularity, partially due to increased concern for water treatment systems and the environment.

This chrome-free approach decreases the levels of pollution-causing emission loads and disposal of chromium-containing waste into our environment. More specifically, this process results in a 41% reduction in Chemical Oxygen Demand & a 67% reduction in Total Solids. 

Moreover, wet white tanning allows making chromium-free leathers with the same equipment that a chrome tannery uses.
