Govt plans CTC to enhace leather quality

A Leather Technology Centre is being built in the midwestern Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul. It is the first in the Midwest of Brazil. The centre will execute not only studies on cattle leather, but also on leather of other animals, like sheep, pigs, alligators, fish, capybaras, ostriches, chinchillas, and even frogs.

Brazil is investing in technology to improve the quality of the leather produced in the country. The state of Mato Grosso do Sul, in midwestern Brazil, is already building the Centre of Leather Technology (CTC), to include five laboratories for research and treatment of the product.

"It is a school-laboratory to improve the quality of the leather and the animal hides," stated Edson Espíndola Cardoso, the technical coordinator of the CTC.

According to him, the CTC intends to work not only with cattle leather, but also with that of various other animals, as is the case with goats, pigs, alligators, fish, ostriches, capybara, chinchillas and even frogs.

Last year the leather-tanning laboratory was inaugurated, permitting the conservation of the product so that the hides do not decompose, as was a water treatment station. "All the water used in the tanning of the leather will be reused, reducing the consumption and protecting the environment," stated Cardoso.

The other four laboratories being built are the one for finishing, where techniques for scraping, treating and dying the leather are used, the physical-chemical, to guarantee certification of the leather, the physical-mechanical, to measure the resistance of the leather, and the biotechnology which, according to Cardoso, is new to Brazil.
