Renewability Finishing

Codyeco`s range of renewable finishing products

Codyeco, as part of the Royal Smit & Zoon company, promotes the use of leather chemicals based on renewable ingredients and innovate new chemicals with more renewability. The final aim is to have leather chemicals that are completely based on renewable origins. Codyeco aims that those innovative new renewables or bio-based (fully or partially) leather chemicals provide excellent leather performance. In addition, they can be easily handled by tanneries during the leather-making process and can be processed well in the effluent treatment with a minimal environmental footprint.

In Finishing Codyeco has developed now for leather goods, footwear, and furniture upholstery a number of (partial) biobased products. The new Finishing Bio-Based products are an ideal starting point to replace petrochemical-based products and to enable to produce the same high-quality leathers as with existing, commonly available Finishing products. Although not yet fully bio-based or renewable and not yet usable for all types of leather articles it is the first major step.

Circularity goal

Ultimately, Codyeco also aims that the leather chemicals we provide for leather making enable full circularity. Codyeco is innovating and each drop makes a difference and we are in for the long run. Our new higher renewable chemicals enable us to make more sustainable eco-design leather goods and footwear and are a major element in our contribution towards the UN SDG goal no. 12 to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
