LIFE GOAST: a project developed to achieve alternative chrome-free tanning.
A new acrylic polymer-based chemical agent is being developed to bring substantial change to the current production cycle. This is the result of a collaboration with several partners such as Conceria Pasubio, which has been processing chrome-free leathers for years, the Medio Chiampo consortium which manages waters in the surrounding areas, and the scientific support of Cà Foscari university in Venice.
Thanks to a 2.3 million euro investment, 60% of which coming from the EU, the project is scheduled to be completed in 2020.
