Stahl Neo is fully in line with Stahl’s ambition to have a front runner position in sustainability. Products comply with Zero Discharge Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL), but go beyond this standard, targeting an even wider range of chemical substances.
The garment, footwear and leather goods industries increasingly ask for more sustainable leather. At the same time tanners are challenged to meet Zero Discharge Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) goals by 2020. With the introduction of the complete Stahl Neo portfolio for leather finish, Stahl will help tanners to make their business more sustainable. Tanners using Stahl Neo products will be able to produce the full range of leather articles in a qualitative, compliant and sustainable way.
‘The launch of Stahl Neo is a logical step to contribute to a more transparent and sustainable supply chain. This product portfolio is interesting for tanneries that value health, the environment and the future of their business,’ says Huub van Beijeren, Chief Executive Officer at Stahl. ‘We continuously innovate to help create a better future,’ Xavier Rafols adds, Group Director Leather Finish. ‘Tanners are looking for sustainable leather finish solutions. With Stahl Neo we provide our clients a complete sustainable leather finish range that can be easily adapted to existing formulations and applications’, he concludes.

For now and in the future. Since the efforts of different NGOs aiming for zero discharge, it’s up to us to come as close to zero discharge as technically possible. Stahl Neo helps us to reach this goal.’
