Share Article

Proviera and Cromogenia, together, will provide bio-sourced, sustainable, probiotic solutions to the global leather processing industry. Using all-natural probiotic technology, tanneries reduce the carbon footprint from tanning operations, but also reduce the effluent load and the need for biocides, while saving money.

Cromogenia Units SA and Proviera Biotech, LLC have entered into a licensing agreement on the exclusive production of probiotic products replacing traditional chemicals in the leather tanning process in Brazil and Argentina. Cromogenia, a leading supplier of innovative solutions for beamhouse operations, will exclusively manufacture Proviera® products for the Brazilian and Argentinean markets and offer probiotic products to its clients around the world.

Proviera® products are fully bio-sourced and biodegradable and are suited to replace traditional petroleum-based surfactants used in beamhouse operations. This will not only help tanneries reduce the carbon footprint from tanning operations, but also reduce the effluent load and the need for biocides, while saving money.

Proviera’s leather biochemicals are comprised of metabolites derived from a proprietary fermentation and formulation technology using probiotic cultures and natural raw ingredients. From soaking to degreasing, they can be used as a unique alternative to traditional chemicals. 100% natural and nontoxic, they help tanneries reduce operating costs, reduce waste, and create a safer, more sustainable leather production process.
