Leather industry is one of the oldest industries and also highly polluting industry in India. Tanning industry in India stands among the five top exports oriented industries. The unplanned growth of the leather industry, inadequate knowledge and inexperience in environment pollution management has caused several pollution problems which are yet to be solved at the desired level. In the present study a sincere attempt is made to cover all the important aspects relating to environmental pollution problems associated with this industry. In the present study, results have demonstrated that mostly all the stages of leather processing, individually and collectively have an impact on the environment. The quantity of chemicals used for processing, details of wastewater discharge processing capacity, and characteristics of wastewater released in various pre-tanning processes, characteristics of effluent from tannery have been studied. The treatment of liquid wastes generated by the Tanning unit has also been highlighted.
