Capacity building to the Mongolian vegetable tanned yak leather cluster on bio-leather and bio-leather products
reducing the environmental impact of production
improving resource efficiency, and adopting circular economy practices, in order to allow its members’ integration into global greener value and supply chains.
The project will address some of the main problems/constraints of the yak leather sector in Mongolia in terms of: antiquated technology for processing leather; non-compliant products with international quality standards; out-dated infrastructure for waste treatment; and lack of skilled human resources, in order to enable the Vegetable Tanned Yak Leather Cluster to catch-up-with and keep abreast of the latest consumer demands and environmental imperatives.
The tanning industry is one of the most important industries in Mongolia, however it is still based on traditional practices, old facilities, equipment and technologies, leading to a small volume of yak hides suitable for entering the value chain. Based on that, the related sector in Mongolia is in a major need for increased attention to environmentally-friendly, green technologies and circularity of products.
