Abstract

The BioNaD project will aim to demonstrate the use of a new category of dyes, as innovative colorants for the leather industry. These compounds are named naturalised dyes, meaning chemical species resulting from the linkage between a dye and the sugar lactose, obtained from waste milk serum. The goal of BioNaD will be the replacement of current commercial products, in order to establish a significantly eco-sustainable and convenient businness for companies.
