R+D+i, new technology for degreasing animal skin

GRIT,S.L. in co-operation with the Multinational AKZO-NOBEL, has developed and patented worlwide,  a new process for degreasing and dehidrating animal skin for the leather industry as well as food protein industry.

This technology avoids the use of water which is always the main contamination source in traditional processes, basically for the use of tensoactives and additives which are difficult to remove from the original water.

Trials carried out in our pilot plant in Avinyó (Barcelona) with the main European Technological Institutes and key companies in those sectors, have shown excellent results, based on quality, cost and avoiding damages to the environment.

Large European groups have already shown their interest in acquiring this technology for their own companies.
