SYL project partners meet in Mongolia after the first year of work

INESCOP participated in the 1st Project Steering Committee Meeting of the project “Capacity building to the Mongolian vegetable tanned yak leather on bio-leather and bio-leather products" (SYL Project) funded by the EU, within the framework of the SWITCH-Asia Grants Programme.


During the meeting of the SYL project, which took place in Ulaanbaatar, at the premises of the Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the partners had the opportunity to discuss on the interim results of the project and to review the key milestones achieved to date and the working plan for the following project implementation period. In addition, further cooperation prospects were analysed in order to ensure the stability of project's results.

After the meeting, representatives of the partner organisations had the chance to visit the premises of the consortium partner “Brand Gutal LLC” and to be informed about all stages of processing and production of handmade yak leather products.

In parallel, and during her stay in Mongolia, Dr. Elena Bañón, Head of INESCOP’s Upper Materials Dept. and expert in leather, in collaboration with the “Mongolian Association of Leather Industry” (MALI), delivered a six-day training programme for tannery staff of the Vegetable Tanned Yak Leather Cluster at Buligaar tannery facilities in Ulaanbaatar.

Throughout these days, theoretical sessions were combined to present the latest techniques of the beamhouse, tanning and finishing stages, with practical sessions where 6 yak hides were tanned using 2 liming methods (traditional and oxidative) and 2 types of tanning ("Easy White" and vegetable). The zeolite tanning method was also reviewed.
