Abstract

The leather industry is one of the most widespread industries in the Aegean Region and its pollution loads are very high. In this study, chemicals used in the leather industry with regard to different production technologies utilized and the water consumption and pollution loads are determined. With the help of this data, characterization of the leather industry wastewaters during production are carried out, and the possible pretreatment of the leather industry's wastewaters are examined.
