This Hazardous Substance Control (HSC) workshop is designed to cover the entire leather manufacturing process from raw material to finished leather with separate modules covering beamhouse
, tanning, post-tanning and finishing.
With the correct beamhouse
and wet blue processing and using fatliquor-free chemicals the waterproof performance can be optimized leading to savings in both time and costs.
The leather chemicals market in the country is anticipated to grow on account of high demand for basic chemicals in beamhouse operations and increasing adoption of speciality chemicals in leather finishing.
beamhouse chemicals, wet-end chemicals and finishing chemicals.
Water conservation in beamhouse
system and effluent treatment remained the main focus area.

As for the production of wastewater, over 80 percent of the organic pollution load in BOD terms emanates from the beamhouse
(pretanning); much of this comes from degraded hide/skin and hair matter.
Named X-Green Crust Technology it further includes the enzymatic X-Zyme process for the beamhouse
steps, developed together with Denmark-based Novozymes A/S, the global market leader in enzymes: using two microbially produced enzymes in soaking and liming considerably increase the quality of the hides, reduce the amount of waste and significantly improve the efficiency of the entire process.
, tanning and finishing, are expected to witness growing demand over the next five years.
BASF launched DryFast, its newest beamhouse
process, on the market in 2014 which combines the advantages of a range of products to a solution that significantly reduces water, energy and process time for tanneries.
Green Leather Crust includes top innovations along the leather making process: the X-Zyme beamhouse
technology, LANXESS wet white tanning system X-Tan as well as the recently launched X-Biomer biopolymers for the retanning process.
