Tanweek

Tanweek (2002)

In conjunction with the ESTW, COTANCE developed Tanweek to highlight how European tanners use science and technology innovations in practical applications that significantly enhance the lives of both tannery employees and the general public. The main event of Tanweek was an open conference in Bologna, in the framework of Lineapelle, the world’s largest leather fair. The conference was also a showcase for the information materials produced during the year:

A 12-page colour brochure explains the impact of science on the tanning industry, and shows how the latest R&D breakthroughs contribute to a cleaner environment. The brochure is available in English, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Swedish. 
A video illustrates how science has improved the production of leather in Europe, highlighting the environmental benefits and how they positively affect the public.
