The team at wet-green® is working at full steam to extend the application spectrum surrounding sustainable leather manufacture.
In the “Leather Innovation Centre” in Reutlingen, our wet-green® Leather Research and Development Department is hard at work to come up with additional resource-saving measures and green solutions on behalf of our partners, tanneries and manufacturers working for the premium and luxury goods industry.
-> A universal dry leather semi-finished product which requires no biocides and is suitable for all leather types.
Sulphide-free unhairing technology!
-> The development of a safe unhairing technology as an alternative to currently used sulphur compounds. This eliminates the release of toxic hydrogen sulphide which could endanger staff in the beamhouse, and also prevents noxious odours.
Natural dispersants and filling agents as well as natural dyestuffs!
-> Substitution of the crude oil chemical-based products used to date.
Use of biopolymers and alternative cross-linking systems!
-> Replacement of synthetic polymer binders and reactive cross-linking chemicals in the leather finish.
Development of possibilities for material recycling of environmentally compatible by-products from wet-green® production! (including shavings, extraction residues etc.)
We are pleased to pass on our many years of experience, partially originating from the former Reutlingen Leather Institute, and the broad-based know-how of our wet-green® experts from the field of leather research and development at seminars and individual training events.
Our expertise handed down from over 25 years of experience is also much in demand when it comes to the submission of expert opinions from an officially sworn and appointed technical expert in the field of leather.
wet-green® - a cutting edge in technical expertise and innovation for future-oriented manufacturers in an ever tougher and more fiercely competitive international leather industry.
