The leather industry has been serving humanity for a very long time. This industry includes producing leather cloths, shoes, handbags, jackets, furniture, interiors and etc. For producing such products, animals’ skin are required which have become very restricted and forbidden in many countries. This has given the leather industry and negative stigma along with the fact that this industry also has strong ties to pollution.
The mentioned problem arises from the fact that many chromium based compounds, which are are used to process leather for tanning and post-tanning, have a negative impact on the environment. However, leather still plays a dominant role in our day to day lives and is part of our global culture.
To name a few of the chemicals TEAM provides to serve this industry are, Caustic Soda Flakes, Sodium Hydrosulphide, Sodium Sulphide, Lime, Biocides, Ammonium Chloride, Formic Acid, Salts, Sodium Formate, Magnesium Oxide, and Defoamers.
