A total of 19 papers are available to download, including B. Autenrieth from Trumpler with “Leather: A Natural High Tech Material – Facts rather than Words”; R. Faatz from Lectra Germany with “Sustainable and competitive? Flexibility is the key to profitable leather processing”; M. Costello from Stahl with “Renewable Carbon and how it is changing the leather chemicals industry”; and E. Heller from SLCR Lasertechnik with “Animal meets Laser – Traceability of hides, skins and leather!”.

Initially planned to be held June 18-19, 2020, the next edition of Freiberg Leather Days will now take place June 9-10, 2021.
