The Dutch leather chemicals and coatings supplier, Stahl, runs four centres of excellence where candidates from universities and tanneries are trained as leather technicians.
These centres, or campuses, are in the Netherlands, India, China, and Mexico.
The Stahl Campus Mexico is in the city of León, in Guanajuato state, and has been training a small group of students. Emphasis is laid on best practices in environmental care and sustainability.
Three participants from CICUR (Leather Industry Chamber of Guanajuato) attended a week-long beamhouse and tanning training at the centre of excellence at Stahl Mexico. Participants learned about conventional and Stahl’s sustainable solutions for leather processing.
The students observed the different possibilities and advantages of the sustainable processes, when compared to conventional systems as they processed hides using both technologies.
Here is an in depth look at all the topics the participants learned on Stahl Campus:
