Pakistan - UNIDO invites bid for waste management project in Sialkot
28 February 2019


Australian high-performance car manufacturer Brabham Automotive has appointed German brand DestroyvsBeauty (DvsB) as its official leathergoods partner.

Brabham said this new partnership underscores its commitment to heritage and pride in premium manufacturing because DvsB is “renowned for its production of unique bag models, small leather items and a ‘Handcrafted in Germany’ philosophy that has served it for 75 years”.

The United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) has published an official notice on its procurement website for a contract at a new tanning cluster in Pakistan. UNIDO is asking for bids from technology providers interested in winning a contract to build a new common effluent treatment plant and establish a common waste management programme at the Sialkot Tannery Zone.

Funds from UNIDO’s global environmental facility and technical assistance will be available to the bidder that wins the contract. Companies have until April 19 to submit bids for the work.

UNIDO has explained that the Sialkot Tannery Zone came into being because the disparate leather manufacturing set-up in and around the city was making environmental management particularly difficult to manage.
