Research & Development

In the leather industry and technology, R&D is a crucial component of innovation and a key factor in developing and translating the basic science into products and services that satisfy customer needs, and desires.

Our R&D resources consist of highly educated (academic) people operating with a scientific approach, working in our labs and from desk research. To fulfil our ambition “playing a visible role as a catalyst in making the leather value chain largely sustainable by 2025”, R&D is working on innovative and more efficient products having bigger biodegradability to reduce waste.

Our key strategy in this process is ensuring to improve the uptake of chemicals instead of shifting the efforts to clean the water to the effluent treatment plant. Our Research team is dedicated to finding sustainable solutions for clean water.

New chemistry means new safety risks. To control these risks, we invest in safety equipment to analyse the processes from beginning to end (e.g. reaction calorimetry and DSC). To control the reactions, analytical equipment like HPLC/GPC/DSC is used.
