Weesp, the Netherlands – September 5th, 2016 – At this year’s ACLE, Smit & zoon celebrated its 195-year anniversary. What better way to celebrate our 195th birthday than with fresh smoothies? Made on the spot with fresh fruit and veggies, these drinks kept even the 195-year olds vital. Many therefore also visited our stand for a sustainable shot of health!
From February 1st until February 3rd, 2016 Smit & zoon’s Wet-end and Finishing teams will be present at the IILF 2016 in Chennai, India. Our technical, commercial and management teams are looking forward to welcoming you at stand number 2.7.D.
Smit & zoon has just published its latest Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, which covers our environmental and social performance for 2015 and outlines our CSR approach and our ambition to play a catalyzing role in making the leather value chain largely sustainable by 2025.
Weesp, December 30, 2015 - A Smit & zoon study recently showed that a known technique from the food and feed industry can also be applied on leather. This opens up a new way of studying the oxidation processes on leather, the outcomes of which can be of potential use to minimize the risk of Chrome VI formation on leather.
On 9 December ZDHC (the Roadmap to Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals ) has published an updated edition of their MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List ) which now includes a leather section.
