I'm working with a business in Portland, Oregon that has as a non-product output of 25 different types of leather scrap material. We are looking for secondary markets / reuse for this material. Shipping the material to, say, the east coast would not be
cost (or environmentally) effective. I understand there is a leather press technology used for reuse of leather scrap. Is anyone aware of such a leather press business on the west coast? Or other ways to manage this waste? I am already working with th
em on creating internal practices to reduce the volume of leather scrap (about 400 #s/day), however some scrap will occur.
Hope you can help.
