During Lineapelle's next edition, in hall 14, an exhibition area dedicated to the circular economy in the tanning sector will be available to visitors.

The tanning industry already uses a waste of the food industry to produce one of the most valuable materials for the production of footwear, leather goods, furniture, etc.

In addition, this area will host and explain some of the processes that are part of the tanning sector's circularity: in fact, starting from potential wastes (trimmings, flesh, sewage sludge), the processes applied to produce  jellies for food use (eg canned meat), collagen for cosmetic creams and biostimulants / fertilizers for agriculture, road foundations, pet toys etc.



The circularity of the Italian tanning industry.

Protagonists talk about it.
