Empowering our Customers

With the plant, we drive the whole industry towards water-based coatings while also pioneering discharge water purification.

Circular economy and 'Zero Waste Leather'

ECO - Elmo Circular Operating model sets a new benchmark for circular economy within the tanning industry. The tradition of leather, refining a material made by nature is one of the oldest circular economies in the world, creating a sustainable value proposition based on upcycling.

Clean Water Tanning

Making Wastewater into Drinking Water


Our goal goes beyond producing the best leather in the world, we also aim to generate the cleanest wastewater in the world. Our optimized biological wastewater treatment plant sets an industry benchmark for purifying wastewater generated during the tanning process. Employing our innovative clean water tanning technology allows us to borrow and return water from the nearby river Ätran, rather than consuming. In addition, we are committed to supporting WaterAid in their mission to provide safe drinking water to communities worldwide.


We use water from nearby river Ätran. Purified almost to perfection with several parameters pushing 100%, it empowers Elmo the position as the obvious industry benchmark. Downstream, a regional cleaning facility filters the water, supplying cities on the Swedish West Coast with clean drinking water. Established in 2005, our biological waste water treatment plant is optimized to manage waste water from our tanning process, enabling waste water purification at an industry benchmark level. The plant and its innovated technology received honourable citation by the EU LIFE-Environment programme “the new waste water treatment technology also gives better results than the current best available techniques (BATs) for the tannery sector”. Clean water tanning technology enables us to borrow water instead of consuming it.


Elmo Supports Wateraid

In order to extend our pursuit of good quality water resources for everyone regardless of geographic location, Elmo supports WaterAid and the quest to facilitate safe water for everyone, everywhere.
