China Leather grows greener!!!
Aug '11
Here we go again: an opportunity to see, and be seen, in China's premier leather event - The All China Leather Exhibition (ACLE).

Companies need to attend ACLE if….
- they seek new potential business partners and suppliers in China,
- looking for new technology to reduce production cost and achieve greener production targets
- they wish to get in touch with industrial professionals, leaders and consultants,
- or want to take a look at how others are managing to grow their China business.

The inaugural ACLE was held in 1998 with the purpose of introducing the best and most innovative in all aspects of leather making - primarily from overseas suppliers at that time - to Chinese companies.

It has grown in reputation and size in a steady upward curve ever since. Increasingly, Chinese domestic manufacturers and suppliers joined the burgeoning list of overseas exhibitors. Today, ACLE can rightly claim to be the 'one-stop-shop' for everything ranging from hides and skins to multi-million dollar water purification plants.

As in previous years ACLE is integrated alongside two leather finished product shows. The China International Footwear Fair (CIFF) showcases many of the best and most established footwear manufacturers in China, while Moda Shanghai (MODA) features finished leather garments, handbags and fashion accessories. Both CIFF and MODA are easily accessed through ACLE.

The upcoming 2011 event, which runs 6 - 8 September, is a 'BIG' show.

There will be 1,246 exhibiting companies, up 24% on the year before, from 37 countries and regions, on-hand to meet and greet an estimated 18,000 plus visitors.

Last year the exhibition roamed across six Halls at the SNIEC fairground. To accommodate these record numbers for 2011, ACLE will occupy one additional Hall, seven in total and bringing the total space to 80,500 sq.m., up 17% on 2010.

Sustainability is more than just a catchphrase at ACLE. Companies in China looking for the latest and most innovative products from home and abroad will find a supportive environment enabling them to locate products and services geared towards a more sustainable future for the industry.

Tough new environmental protection standards are being introduced by regulatory authorities in China and - importantly - will probably be vigorously enforced. Many smaller or under-funded tanneries may disappear as a result.

To name a few among others, companies assisting 'sustainable' leather manufacture at ACLE include:
SILVATEAM - With a history reaching back some 150 years SilvaTeam is a leader in the development and production of vegetable extracts and speciality chemicals for tanning leather.

ITALPROGETTI - An established Italian company specialising in the treatment of tannery effluents, also manufacturers in South America and China.

LANXESS - Launched a new 'Sustainable Leather Management' programme earlier in the year now offer an organic tanning material that fits into their X-series.
