The DyTan process is the outcome of a partnership between Archroma and Trumpler who have combined their expertise to offer an alternative to existing metal-free and chrome-tanned leather production that claims to deliver high-performance leather for a variety of applications.
At the heart of the DyTan process is Archroma’s patented Avicuero System, developed through collaboration with leather technology consultant Dr. Leather.
This system relies on novel molecules that enable sustainable leather tanning and dyeing while simplifying the process and reducing the required energy and water resources.
As a result, DyTan is claiming to have the potential to save energy by up to 25% and reduce process time in CO2 emissions by up to 23%, compared to traditional chrome tanning through the Archroma One Way Impact Calculator.
The company said the process also shows significant water savings compared to other metal-free tanning systems.
“Our collaboration with Archroma has made it possible to rethink traditional methods of leather production and to develop a pioneering alternative,” explained Hein Vugs, managing director of the Trumpler Group. “Our vision is to lead the leather industry to a more consciously sustainable future without compromising on quality or efficiency.”
