Expected Results

The development of LIFE microTAN project is expected to lead to the following results:

  • A procedure of recovery of untanned solid wastes from tanneries will be available.

  • As a result of the implementation of the proposed recovery procedure, the valorisation as gelatine and collagen products of 15% of untanned solid waste generated in European tanneries is expected.

  • The previous achievement will mean a foreseen reduction of about 10% of waste transportation, what will redound to a reduction in the CO2 emissions.

  • As a consequence, a reduction of the environmental costs of the tanneries is forecasted.

  • Last, but not least, valuable by-products will be obtained, which will provide the tanneries with new niche opportunities.
