Bath exhaustion in metal-free leather processes
Navarro Tovar, Jaume
MetadataShow full item record
The study "Bath exhaustion in metal-free leather processes" aims to conduct a study on the effect of different chemical products used in the tanning industry and different wet-end processes on a wet-white raw material, with a view to the contamination of the wastewater. The problem of contamination of wastewater in the tanning industry is well known and this study will seek to find solutions and relationships between processes and chemical products to reduce the amount of Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) during the tanning processes and re-tanning on metal-free free leathers. The objective is to study the fixation and baths exhaustion in these processes, recurrent products (vegetable extracts, syntans, resins and biopolymers) and fatliquors. At the same time, it will also seek to design an ecological and reproducible in industrial level and a good metal-free article as a final result.

Circular economy: the case of a shared wastewater treatment plant and its adaptation to changes of the industrial zone over time Navarro Martínez, Diego; Cantero Gómez, M. Rosa; Valls, Elisabet; Puig, Rita (Elsevier, 2020-03-21)Due to the increase on fresh water demand, wastewater treatment facilities need to be proactive to increase the circularity of water cycles. They have to go further than the traditional end-of-pipe service. In the present ...
Minimization of the environmental impact of chrome tanning: a new process reusing the tanning floats Morera Prat, Josep M.; Bartolí, Ester; Chico, Roberto; Solé Cutrona, Cristian; Cabeza, Luisa F. (Elsevier, 2011)A chrome tanning process which allows the reuse of tanning floats has been developed. The most commonly used chromium salts were replaced by highly masked and basified ones. This substitution eliminates basification ...
