In a bid to ap­ply clean tan­ning tech­nolo­gies to the In­dian leather in­dus­try, dis­cus­sions are on to ex­pand ‘hair sav­ing’ tech­nol­ogy to clus­ters across In­dia, says United Na­tions In­dus­trial Devel­op­ment Or­ga­ni­za­tion (UNIDO).

Ac­cord­ing to a source, as many as eight pi­lot projects demon­strat­ing as many clean tech­nolo­gies are run­ning in 21 tan­ner­ies in Kan­pur city. When dis­solved in wa­ter, the raw hide hair con­trib­utes to pol­lu­tion. The talk for in­tro­duc­tion of a tech­nol­ogy called ‘hair save’, as it saves the hair from go­ing into the wa­ter, has been go­ing on. It has been in­tro­duced to tan­ner­ies for the first time in In­dia, and dis­cus­sion with the gov­ern­ment has been held.

It is learned that dis­cus­sions to ap­ply the tech­nol­ogy to four clus­ters - Ben­gal, Ja­land­har, Chen­nai and Ut­tar Pradesh-are go­ing on.
