Discipline: Engineering, Technology



This paper looks at the major stages of the tanning process with the aim of identifying the various inputs and wastes generated in each stage through the use of eco mapping. Understanding the inputs and outputs of the various tanning processes is the starting point to identify options to make improvements related to material use, waste reduction and other actions to protect the environment.
