Project LIFE ENV/IT/365 PODEBA “Use of poultry dejections for the bating phase in the tanning cycle” is presented by ENEA for call “LIFE +2010” and financed by CE.
The PODEBA project will demonstrate the eco-sustainability of using poultry manure for the ‘bating phase’ of leather tanning – a process whereby the hides for high quality leathers are treated with enzymes to soften them. The expected environmental benefits are as follows:
This is a demonstration project and it is related to the development of new products in the food industry, aimed at increasing the economic and environmental sustainability.
The project has a duration of 30 months from 1.1.2012 to 30/06/2014 and a total cost of € 1,200,668.00. The co-funding by the EU is 46.6% of that cost with a contribution, therefore, amounting to € 586,387.00
