Global chemical company Stahl India Private Limited and the Indian CSIR-Central Leather Research Institute have signed a ‘Letter of Intent’ (LoI) to make the Indian leather industry more sustainable.

To remain competitive, the Indian government had identified sustainability as a key priority for the leather industry.

“Worldwide there is an increasing demand for more sustainable leather and at the same time, this is one of the biggest challenges for the Indian leather industry,” Stahl India said in a press release.

“We have the innovation power and expertise to support the Indian tanneries in making their production processes more sustainable and responsible,” Tuncay Deriner, MD of Stahl India said.

“Stahl and CSIR-CLRI believe that only by working together, a significant change in the industry can be realised,” Deriner added.

The two organisations will collaborate on resource conservation technology and joint R&D in bioprocessing.

Other activities will be identified jointly from time to time with the ultimate goal being to showcase the partnership as an example for the whole Indian leather industry.

“We wholeheartedly support the Indian government in this and as a market leader, Stahl strongly believes in taking responsibility, so we are pleased that the CSIR-CLRI chose us as partner,” Deriner noted.

Few tanneries have been identified to work with on the above activities of the project and this number will be expanded over time.

"Ultimately, we hope this will motivate the entire leather sector to be associated with CSIR-CLRI to ensure the Indian leather industry remains globally competitive,” Dr. A B Mandal, director of CSIR-CLRI observed. (AR)
