From the 1st to the 3rd of February 2017 Smit & zoon’s Wet-end and Finishing divisions will be present at the India International Leather Fair (IILF) in Chennai, India. We look forward to welcoming you at our stand 2-12-E in Hall 2.
While enjoying some typical Dutch and Italian snacks, our technical – and commercial staff will be available to tell you all about the wide variety of finished and unfinished leathers presented in our booth – most of them focusing on the Indian market.
From December onwards, Smit & zoon will start using recycled polyethylene drums.
An important next step in taking our CSR approach with regard to packaging materials one step further. Our supplier for polyethylene drums collects them and cleans and checks the drums thoroughly. Depending on the quality, the packaging is either reconditioned or collected for recycling.
At this year’s ACLE, Smit & zoon celebrated its 195-year anniversary. What better way to celebrate our 195th birthday than with fresh smoothies? Made on the spot with fresh fruit and veggies, these drinks kept even the 195-year olds vital. Many therefore also visited our stand for a sustainable shot of health!
Weesp, December 30, 2015 - A Smit & zoon study recently showed that a known technique from the food and feed industry can also be applied on leather. This opens up a new way of studying the oxidation processes on leather, the outcomes of which can be of potential use to minimize the risk of Chrome VI formation on leather.
On 9 December ZDHC (the Roadmap to Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals ) has published an updated edition of their MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List ) which now includes a leather section.
