Dr Peter Thomas
His presentation, “Leather a sustainable product – How to improve it with sustainable chemistry” will examine the intrinsic sustainability of leather, providing an assessment of sustainable chemistry and whether there is a clear definition of it. He will put forward a proposal encompassing several key factors which are fundamental to increasing the sustainability of leather. By giving examples of how certain keywords can be misleading, Thoma will sketch out the case for improvements and outline key avenues of how the sustainability of leather can be enhanced to respond to the increasing demand for sustainability in the automotive leather sector.
