Best Practice Guide for Sustainable Vegetable-Tanned Yak Leather Manufacturing
Type: Guide
Year: 2023
Language: English, Mongolian
Country: Mongolia

This best practice guide has been prepared by the EU funded SWITCH-Asia SYL Project based on previous studies conducted by IUE Commission, United Nations Development Organisation (UNIDO) and the European Commission. Main objectives are to:

  • Revisit the traditional ‘standing’ issues about reducing the polluting emissions throughout the entire leather-making process (water saving, deliming, chrome management, etc.), and
  • Present a fresh, neutral assessment of some cleaner methods based on years of practical experience.

The Guide focuses on the manufacture of vegetable-tanned yak leather. Information about experiences gathered, and options available to date are presented, as well as their advantages and disadvantages.
