Stahl & Igualada Leather Cluster work for sustainability
Stahl, a leading firm in process chemicals for leather products, performance coatings, and polymers, joined hands with Igualada Leather Cluster Barcelona for water management. About 100 people joined the event in Barcelona which gave presentations providing practical insights in optimising water usage in leather production without compromising the quality.

The event started at Adoberia Bella, the headquarters in Igualada at the Catalonia Leather Cluster, with a word of welcome by Jordi Vidal Valls, cluster manager of the Catalonia Leather Cluster.

Frederico Brugnoli, CEO of Spin360 being one of the key players in product environmental assessment, continued with an update about the process of the development of a full transparency model for the leather industry, started at the ReVeal event last year.

Charlie Walker of Global Water Intelligence (GWI) emphasised the challenges of water management like scarcity and access to water and underlined that the future of water is smart and circular.

Frank Michel of the ZDHC foundation talked about the ZDHC Roadmap-to-Zero Programme, which was introduced just a year ago to coordinate industry efforts and eliminate hazardous chemicals.

Visits to the University of Igualada and the new water treatment facility were followed up with a visit to the local Leather Museum in Igualada, where attendees were informed about the rich history of the development of leather production and use.

Michael Costello, director of sustainability at Stahl said, “The event focused on water management in leather production. It was inspiring to come together with key players in the leather and water management industry. We shared our thoughts and concerns and elaborated on new ways to continue towards a transparent industry. We believe that partnership and determination are key for achieving this and it’s great to see that our belief is being endorsed by key stakeholders in the supply chain. This opens up a host of future possibilities.” (GK)
