Leather industry, one of the polluting industries because of generation of huge amount of liquid and solid wastes, also emits obnoxious smell because of degradation of proteinous material of skin and generation of gases such as NH 3 , H 2 S and CO 2 . Solid wastes are raw trimmings, fleshings, chrome shavings, buffing dusts and keratin wastes. Accumulation of these wastes lead to sludge problem and choking of treatment pipes and finally results in reduction in efficiency of treatment plant…

Leather industry, one of the polluting industries because of generation of huge amount of liquid and solid wastes, also obnoxious smell because of degradation of proteinous material of skin Solid

Safe Disposal and Effective Utilization of Solid Wastes from Leather Industry

The leather industries produce large amount of solid organic wastes from raw hides and skins, semi-processed leather, as well as sludge as a result of wastewater treatment. If these solid wastes are

Treatment of Leather Industry Wastewater and Recovery of Valuable Substances to Solve Waste Management Problem in Environment

Every leather industry produces a large quantity of wastewater having enormous amount of pollutants which have a deleterious effect on the environment drastically if it is discharged without

Valorization of Tannery Solid Waste Materials Using Microbial Techniques: Microbes in Tannery Solid Waste Management

This chapter describes how environmental pollution is the major problem associated with rapid industrialization, due to which the quantity of solid waste generated from the industries is increasing substantially, and microbe-mediated tannery solid waste management points to the recovery of value-added products from these wastes.

The Circular Economy in the Management of Waste from Leather Processing

The tanning industry generates significant amounts of solid waste and post-production wastewater, which should be managed in accordance with the principles of the circular economy. Waste is generated

Value Addition to Leather Industry Wastes and By-Products: Hydrolyzed Collagen and Collagen Peptides

Environmental consciousness and constraints in developed societies over the past 20 years have brought about a dramatic impact on tannery operations worldwide. Leather industry has been categorized

A Review on Utilization Routes of the Leather Industry Biomass

From this study, it can be concluded that the conversions of leather processing industry waste to valuable biomaterial can protect the environment, generate additional income for leather industries, and pave way for sustainable and renewable biomaterials production.

Leather shavings treatment: An enzymatic approach

The present work is devoted to illustrating the potential application of enzymes for recycling wet-blue shavings. Two approaches were made in parallel. To recycle wet-blue shavings, the classical

Deproteination of chrome waste by washing and enzymatic hydrolysis

Waste from the manufacture of chrome-tanned leathers (so-called shavings) can be processed (apart from alkaline or acid breakdown) by enzymatic hydrolysis employing alkaline proteases. Under mild

High exhaust chrome tanning using fleshing hyrolysate

Fleshing hydrolysate (FH) was prepared from limed fleshings by an alkali digestion method. The FH that was obtained was in the molecular weight range of 15,000 daltons. It was used as a chrome

Enzymatic modification of hydrolysis products from collagen using a microbial transglutaminase II Preparations of films

The use of renewable resources in the production of goods traditionally made from petroleum products has recently gained increasing research interest. Environmental concerns, such as biodegradability

Immobilization of degradative enzyme onto collagen hydrolysate films

To add value to the recovered collagen hydrolysate, films, cast from this material, were evaluated for immobilizing degradative enzymes, including OPH, shown to be effective in degrading a range of organophosphate esters.

Enzymatic modification of hydrolysis products from collagen using a microbial transglutaminase. III. Preparation of films with improved mechanical properties

The goal was to further enhance functional properties of the enzymatically prepared films and at the same time determine if biodegradability is retained, and found that tensile strength, maximum strain, and Young's Modulus improved significantly when orientation took place on either unmodified or crosslinked dry gelatin films.
