TANNING

Merichem provides both technology and service solutions for tannery waste applications; with our innovative technologies and customized chemical product formulations.

Merichem’s LO-CAT® process has proven to be highly effective in removing H2S from both: sour air streams and biogas from anaerobic digesters. The LO-CAT® technology was first installed into these types of applications in 1980 and 1990 respectively. The first installation of the LO-CAT® technology on tannery waste streams was in 2007.

Merichem’s sodium sulfide and sodium hydrosulfide solutions can be used as an economic and effective hide de-hairing agent in the leather tanning process.
