ECO – Elmo Circular Operating model sets a new benchmark for circular economy within the tanning industry
The tradition of leather, refining a material made by nature is one of the oldest circular economies in the world, creating a sustainable value proposition based on up-cycling. At Elmo, we apply a 100% circular manufacturing methodology meaning all our process waste is up-cycled, recycled and reused as raw-material for other industries or as energy. Launched in early 2021, Elmo’s industry leading ECO-model facilitates zero process waste, which means that none of our waste ends up in landfill creating an industry unique ‘Zero Waste Leather’ value proposition. Leather also enables a prolonged product and application lifetime compared to alternative materials. Our distinguished ‘Zero Waste Leather’ is a high-performing, beautiful and fully biodegradable end-product, that reduces the CO2 footprint due to its extended product life expectancy and our unique ECO-model.
