Abstract

The leather industry has gained immense socio-economic importance in India. Indian leather division has contributed significant economic growth by providing job opportunities. The main reason for the development and growth of the leather industry in the country is its large animal population. India holds nearly 10% of the total global availability of raw hides and skins which are the basic raw material for the leather industry. The impact of tanning and associated activities on air, surface and groundwater and soil pollution arise from the chemicals applied, the raw materials used and the effluents, waste and off-gas releases generated in the process. The tanning industry is known to be very polluting especially through effluents high in organic and inorganic dissolved and suspended solids content followed by propensities for high oxygen demand and containing potentially toxic metal salt residues.
