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.
