India develops the technology of making gelatin from tanning waste

India's central tanning Research Institute recently developed a new technology that can produce high-quality gelatin from waste animal skin, and the failure and damage of glass pipes are becoming more and more serious. At the same time, this technology can also help reduce tanning waste, which can be described as killing two birds with one stone

each ton of animal skin used in the tanning process will produce about 50 kg of trimming waste, which can produce about 10 kg of gelatin through new technology. At present, the Institute is applying for a patent for this technology

high quality gelatin is usually synthesized from collagen, which is mainly extracted from animal bones and pig skins. Now Indian researchers have successfully extracted collagen from leather waste animal skin and synthesized gelatin. These wastes are usually cut from the neck, noise part and tail of the whole animal skin. The extracted collagen is hydrolyzed to synthesize gelatin

gelatin is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a capsule and as a thickener in the production of jelly, ice cream, pudding, cake and soup in the food industry. B madhan, director of the Institute and senior scientist, said that it would take a long time to produce gelatin for industrial use if these solid wastes were treated by traditional methods, and the value of the gelatin produced was low. The new technology is high-quality gelatin obtained by hydrolysis, which can be used to produce capsules

P SA Parker, chief senior scientist of tanning technology, said: "The new factory is fully equipped. Within one year from the date of receiving the goods, ravanan said that India needs about 700000 tons of raw leather every year, and more than 10% of the raw materials will become solid waste. Tanners feel very difficult to deal with these wastes, and now the Institute has solved this problem for them. He also said that if the new technology is used properly, it can also reduce the import of high-quality gelatin.
