Brazil Solves Leather Residue Problem Turning It into Fertilizer

Ilsa Brasil Tanning and shoe industries' leather residue, which have been an environment problem thus far, is going to become fertilizer and contribute to food production in Brazil. The inauguration of fertilizer factory Ilsa Brasil in the municipality of Portão, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, should bring about a positive change in the image of the country's tanning industry.

The unit, which will be officially inaugurated this Friday (July 10), has an installed capacity for processing 35,000 tons/year of residue, to produce 20,000 tons/year of organic fertilizer. This means that the factory will be able to receive all of the tanning and shoe sectors residue in Rio Grande do Sul, solving the environmental liability problem of supplier companies.

Ilsa Brasil is a company with Italian-Brazilian capital established in 2008. The aim of Ilsa's investment in Brazil is to provide an alternative for eliminating the environmental liability generated by tanned leather residue, producing nitrogenated fertilizers of high nutritional efficiency for biological agriculture.

Ilsa Spa started operating in Verona, Italy, in 1956. In 1979, the company moved to Arzignano, in the heart of the world's most important tanning district. This made it easier for a partnership to be established for developing technology for turning leather residue into organic fertilizers, which are highly valued, particularly in Europe.

The mission of the company is to manufacture and develop nitrogenated fertilizers of high nutritious efficiency for biological and specialized agriculture. In 2008, Ilsa exported its products to 31 countries in five continents.

It is the leading company in organic fertilizer production in Italy, thanks to heavy investment in technology. In Italy, it has capacity for processing 60,000 tons/year, generating 34,000 tons/year of organic fertilizer and 62,000 tons/year of organic-mineral fertilizer.

Ilsa Brasil is already receiving residue from tanning and shoe industries.
