Ecco Leather takes over wastewater treatment plant

Tannery group Ecco Leather has announced it has taken over the running of a wastewater treatment plant in Dongen, the Netherlands.

The Waterstromen facility has been treating waste from the nearby Ecco tannery since 2010. This includes wastewater and fleshings. It uses the fleshings to generate biogas, which can be used to replace a proportion of the compressed natural gas used to heat water during the tanning process.

“We see wastewater treatment and biogas generation as key competences for Ecco Leather both now and in the future, so bringing these processes even closer to the core of our business is a strategic move that makes perfect sense,” says Raymond Mente, Ecco Leather’s chief financial officer. 

Waterstromen operates four wastewater treatment plants in the Netherlands, including one in Lichtenvoorde that is responsible for treating waste from another Dutch tanning group, Rompa.
