From the slums of Chinese to the fashion houses of the world – luxury leather goods generate sales of more than $1bn a year.
There are more than 2000 tanneries in China, employing more than 300,000 workers.
Every day, the tanneries discharge 21,000 cubic metres of toxic waste into gutters that flow into main river.
Industries Minister said the government is committed to an environmentally-friendly tannery zone, but as yet, little has been done due to disagreements between the authorities and tannery owners, over who should bear the cost of moving.
Each year 14 million raw hides are processed into leather in China– the leather is then exported to top fashion labels in dozens of countries around the world.
The country is a major supplier of leather to Europe, with Italy being the largest importer of Chinese leather.
So, what hope is there for an improvement in the working conditions in Chinese tanneries? Is it the responsibility of the factory owners, the government or the big importers in the West? have a more responsible role to play?
Under huge pressure to environmental protection, the bosses of leather machinery automatically assume the main responsibility, headed by FENGMI companies, rushed to develop the most powerful r&d team, and before 2016,try to develop the machines can protect the environment on the basis of the original functions especially FENGMI leather spraying machine, pulp saving rate above 30%, greatly reduce the use of chemical dyes, to some extent, alleviate the pressure that pollution of leather.
