In a bold move towards a more sustainable future, Bridge of Weir, a renowned figure in the leather industry, has introduced pioneering tanning technologies aimed at drastically reducing environmental impact. These groundbreaking innovations not only promise to bolster the eco-friendliness of leather production but also align seamlessly with global initiatives to combat climate change.

BioTAN® represents a hybrid approach that gradually boosts the bio-content within chrome-free leather processing, yielding finished products that maintain performance standards without sacrificing environmental integrity. By progressively integrating bio-based materials into the production process, BioTAN® strikes a harmonious balance between sustainability, performance, and quality.

On the other hand, FreeTAN® marks a paradigm shift by completely replacing traditional tanning chemistry with compostable technology. This revolutionary approach renders the leather chrome-free, heavy metal-free, and aldehyde-free, while also exhibiting promising biodegradability properties. FreeTAN® not only sets new benchmarks for environmental sustainability but also delivers finished leather products that excel in performance.

Bridge of Weir’s relentless commitment to innovation and sustainability is evident in the development of these two groundbreaking technologies. Over the past two decades, the company has spearheaded initiatives aimed at optimizing sustainability, quality, and productivity. With BioTAN® and FreeTAN®, Bridge of Weir aims to elevate the bio-based renewable carbon content of its leather, thereby solidifying its position as a key supporter of environmental targets set by automotive manufacturers.

Looking ahead, Bridge of Weir envisions a leather industry where products are 100% bio-based, chrome-free, heavy metal-free, aldehyde-free, and entirely biodegradable. These latest advancements not only underscore Bridge of Weir’s leadership in supplying environmentally sustainable Fine Automotive Leather but also provide customers with tangible evidence of the company’s unwavering commitment to sustainability.

In conclusion, with BioTAN® and FreeTAN®, Bridge of Weir sets a new standard for sustainability in the leather industry, paving the way for a greener and more environmentally conscious future.
