Xeros Tanning Technologies is the world leader helping tanneries address their water and effluent management challenges. Xeros is the only company using ground-breaking technology to significantly reduce water in the leather production process, a resource that is quickly becoming scarce, on a global scale. Our innovative, patent-protected technology significantly reduces water and chemistry in re-tanning, which also reduces the resulting effluent, allowing tanneries a significant commercial advantage. Xeros technology works with tanneries` existing chemical recipes, but is simply more effective at delivering the chemicals into the hide. Xeros seeks experienced mechanical engineers to join the team to help introduce their technology to tanneries, initially with a focus on the European market.
