A tannery in Vietnam sets new standards - DEG


ISA Tan Tec is a German – Chinese leather manufacturer that received a loan from DEG for the development of a new production site in Vietnam. ISA Tan Tec produces ‘LITE Leather’ which requires 30 % less water and 50 % less energy, than conventionally produced leather. Cooling water is reused and recycled, water efficiency measures are in place and waste water is treated on site. Further the new production site in Vietnam saves 35 % of CO2 emissions compared to an average tannery.
