At The Third Pole of the Earth Leather based in Lhasa, we adopt a greener solution (Responsible Trim) by reducing chemical and water consumption.
Due to the natural ecosystem of Lhasa, the tannery ensures zero water emission, as well as treatment facilities by recycling, recovering, and reuse of the treated wastewater using advanced cleanup technology.
With the use of Zeology (patent-modified zeolite) tanning from Nera Leather Tanning, these mainly contain natural zeolite, as well as natural collagen. Therefore, these waste streams are typically heavy metal-free, white of color and easy to handle. Furthermore, the sludge stream can be treated so that it meets the right conditions to be biodegradable and compostable.
