Nanotechnology and biopolymers for retanning and finishing.
Aim: increase the technical performance of the leather without spoiling the tactile sensation and with the constant control of environmental impact from the processes always in the forefront. In the Stefani Chimis laboratories, a company owned by the Stefani brothers –24 employees in their Montebello factory – they focus on research to produce retanning and greasing products that are more effective and safer, sourcing supplies from renewable sources and a short supply chain. “Technology is the key to keep this sector afloat Marco Nogarole, Research
How does chemical research support the requests for ecofriendly and green production from leather companies? Stefani Chimis is developing a green product independently. We are studying innovative biopolymers, exploiting raw materials that are not derived from oil but renewable sources. Generally they are obtained from food waste, or products that have no market in the food industry. These materials are collected, treated and reprocessed then transformed into suitable material for retanning and greasing. There are noteworthy environmental advantages: first and foremost, we no longer depend on oil and all the materials come from renewable sources. Secondly, the supply chain is shorter with zero footprint. Thirdly, the products are natural and therefore more biodegradable and easy to dispose of. In fact, all supplies could be obtained locally and therefore all oil sourced materials could be completely eliminated.
