Andrea Gruppo wrote a thesis entitled ” PIPER. New scenarios for reusing the waste of leather processing in the architectural field “, focused on sustainability in the architectural and building sector. He involved the company Menichetti in its project. We were very happy to support him in reaching the goal of his thesis: to fit into a circular economy, through the reuse of waste leather processing, to obtain panels to be used in the building sector.

This thesis work allowed to analyze, design and develop a possible material for thermal insulation through the use of tannery waste. The main objective was to fit into a circular economy, which can be regenerated alone and based on the valorization of waste.
