Abstract: The Indian leather industry has gained substantial socio-economic significance due to its contributions to social equity and export contributions. Environmental concerns associated with leather processing, however, had placed the Indian leather sector under serious threat of survival in 1996. Over 400 tanneries in Tamil Nadu were closed under the orders of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India for reasons of inadequate compliance to environmental discharge norms of the State. National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) and the Central Leather Research Institute (CLRI); played a key role in providing critical technological solutions to the vexed problem in a span of 15 months. The outcome of the implementation of technology plans developed and delivered by the two CSIR laboratories to the All India Skin and Hide Tanners and Merchants Association (AISHTMA) enabled the tanners of Tamil Nadu to comply with the environmental norms of the State.
