Waste

In addition to the segregation of recycled material for reuse or recovery, much of Scottish Leather Group’s waste remains under our own control and its value is recovered as heat.

Reclassifying wastes as a resource for both recycling and the recovery of heat represents a step change in the industry’s approach to disposal practice.

We continue to seek other beneficial routes for recovery or reuse of our process wastes, to avoid landfill. This initiative has already reduced our waste disposal tonnage by more than 60% per hide, resulting in a reduced carbon footprint.
