Lineapelle - LEM Conference room - Ponte dei Mari (Side pav. 22) - Milano RHO Fair
Thursday, February 21, 2019 - H. 14.00 - 16.30
The Italian tanning industry represents a reference model for the circular economy.
With a modern and avant-garde industrial approach, it transforms a food waste into a material of quality and excellence. Not only that. By anticipating the European strategy on bio-economy, the Italian tanning industry has been able to go beyond its sectoral horizon. A real symbiosis with the entire value chain has originated by creating the conditions for its production wastes to become valuable raw materials for other industrial chains.
UNIC Italian tanneries, in partnership with Confindustria and Lineapelle, organizes a workshop focused on the circular economy, one of the most interesting topics linked to the sustainability of materials for fashion, furniture and cars.
During this event, the supply chain will present consolidated solutions and good practices towards circular economy, while interacting with stakeholders on future opportunities and challenges.
Universities, public institutions, food and chemicals producers, mechanical companies and fashion brands will also take part of it.
Moreover, in order to demonstrate the concrete sense of this circular approach, the event also offers a gallery of products and accessories made by companies in the supply chain using processing waste. Regenesi will be present at the Gallery with Vimono, o-Re-gami Cup and Fruit Bag.
We will waiting for you at the workshop from 2.00 pm to 4.30 pm in the LEM - Fiera Milano RHO conference room.
