Bio-based high-performance leather: contradiction or Reality?

Michael Franken from TFL is presenting at 23rd September at the ILM Automotive Conference about Bio-Based Technologies for Automotive Leather.



Automotive Leather is certainly the most challenging leather article for leather makers. No other leather must fulfill such high and strict performance – and quality requirements as requested from the automotive industry.

For this reason, only specially developed technologies and chemistries can be considered and applied for the manufacture of automotive leather. At the same time the need for environmentally compliant and sustainable chemistry is increasing.
