CONCIARICERCA R&D WINS THE INNOVATION FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT 2010 AWARD
TANFAST, the new technology for rapid continuous tanning and low water discharge, was awarded by Legambiente, Lombardy Region and Confindustria on November 16, 2010 in the Pirelli Hall of the Lombardy Region.
TANFAST was developed by Conciaricerca (private body of experimentation, connected to the Italian tanning association UNIC) together with AIICA, the Spanish tanning technical institute. The innovation makes possible to treat hides and skins dehydrated using a special patented process in a linear machine equipped with a bath tank, where the tanning solution works in minutes, processing hides and skins in a continuous way until all the liquid has been absorbed. In addition to tanning, the technology may be used to re-tanning, dyeing and fatliquoring, reducing in that way water, chemicals, energy consumption.
