    Ultrasound as the only mechanical effect in the first soaking of bovine rawhides and goatskins were tested. Three different working systems were used at pilot plant level. In the first work system only the soaking float was subjected to the action of ultrasound. In the second and third systems, both the soaking float and the skin were underwent the same action. In the third system a surfactant was added to the soaking float. The variables analyzed were the water absorbed by the skin and its organoleptic properties, the chemical oxygen demand, the suspended solids, and the conductivity of the wastewater. Through analysis of variance in bovine hides, the influence on the results of the hide part (butt, neck or belly) and the work system employed were compared. Related to the values obtained by performing a comparative soaking on stationary way, the use of ultrasound allowed an increase of up to 23% in water absorption of the soaked skins and up to 49% of COD, 58% of SS and 34% of conductivity in soaking floats. For goatskins, due to their thickness and size, a comparison based on the work system was developed. It was proved that for dried goatskins and one of the tested systems of ultrasound application, the skin becomes saturated with water in 36% less time than if it was soaked on stationary way. With the same soaking time, the ultrasound application showed an increase of up to 16% of water absorption in soaked skins and up to 162% of COD, 87% of SS and 9% of conductivity in soaking floats. In both cases, the results were compared with those obtained when the first soaking was performed on stationary way or in drumming. The results show that the use of ultrasound in the first soaking of the skins is a valid alternative that may be useful, at the industrial level, to replace the working systems where the use of drums is not possible.

    La utilització dels ultrasons en sistemes d'adobament vegetal presenta avantatges respecte els sistemes més consolidats en la indústria en l'actualitat: adobaments vegetals dinàmics on s'utilitzen els bombos com a reactor, i adobaments vegetals estàtics o s'utilitzen les tines com a reactor.Els adobaments vegetals dinàmics s'utilitzen en la majoria d'articles adobats al vegetal i presenten un temps de procés reduït(1 a 4 dies) basat en la ràpida difusió del taní degut a l'elevat efecte mecànic que es produeix a l'interior dels bombos. En contrapartida aquest efecte és el causant de danys irreversibles en la dermis de la pell que poden reduir la qualitat del producte considerablement.Els adobaments vegetals estàtics s'utilitzen principalment en aquells articles (soles i similars) on l'oferta de taní per adobar la pell és tan elevada que ni el correcte control dels principals paràmetres que intervenen en l'adobament eviten danys molt greus en la dermis de la pell. En aquest casos s'opta per sistemes estàtics d'adobament on la pell es submergeix en tines a diferent concentració de taní per dur a terme l'adobament. En aquests sistemes l'efecte mecànic és pràcticament nul, però el temps de procés és llarg(7 a 90 dies) fet que redueix la productivitat i obliga a gestionar un estoc més elevat.L'objectiu principal d'aquesta tesi és dissenyar un sistema d'adobament vegetal per ultrasons a nivell industrial que aprofiti els avantatges dels sistemes que s'utilitzen actualment i n'eviti les seves problemàtiques a fi i efecte d'aconseguir un producte final amb una major qualitat i amb un grau d'optimització del procés que el permeti ser viable industrialment.El sistema preveu utilitzar la potència ultrasònica per disminuir la grandària molecular de les micel'les de taní i així aconseguir una ràpida difusió a través de la pell, sense necessitat d'aplicar efecte mecànic a bombo, i accelerant molt el procés respecte a un sistema estàtic.Per tal d'assolir els objectius plantejats s'ha estructurat la tesi en tres etapes: Estudi inicial: Estudi pilot on es pretén estudiar el comportament dels paràmetres que intervenen en l'adobament amb ultrasons i seleccionar les condicions òptimes per tal de dissenyar el processos posteriors.Estudi en l'etapa de penetració: En base els resultats obtinguts en la fase pilot, es proposa l'estudi en fase de penetració. En aquesta etapa s'estudiaran els paràmetres que intervenen en la difusió del taní en tota l'estructura fibrosa de la pell. S'estudiaran les condicions de procés òptimes per aconseguir la penetració en un temps mínim així com la màxima absorció del taní penetrat. Estudi en l'etapa de fixació: A partir dels resultats obtinguts en l'etapa de penetració es proposarà l'estudi en la fase de fixació. En aquesta etapa s'estudiaran els paràmetres que intervenen en la fixació del taní, un cop aquest ha penetrat completament, per tal d'aconseguir optimitzar la fixació i completar el procés d'adobament. Per tal de poder avaluar cadascuna dels assajos que es duen a terme en l'etapa experimental s'utilitzarà com indicador l'índex de curtició. Aquest paràmetre relaciona el percentatge de tanins combinats i el percentatge de substància pell, permeten quantificar l'absorció. Degut a la dificultat analítica per obtenir aquest paràmetre i el volum d'assajos que s'han hagut de realitzar en la tesi, seria molt interessant per futurs estudis poder comptar amb una nova metodologia per obtenir-lo.Estudiades les tres etapes es proposarà un sistema de treball òptim per ultrasons que sigui alternativa als sistemes industrials existents actualment.

    The use of ultrasound in the vegetable tanning processes, show nowadays, some advantages compared with the standard industrial systems like: dynamic vegetable tanning processes where drums are used as a reactor and static vegetable tanning processes where pits are used as a reactor. The dynamic vegetable tanning process is the most common method to produce full vegetable tanned articles. The production time is quite short (between 1 to 4 days), based on the quick diffusion of the vegetable agents due to mechanical effect produced inside the drums. In contrast, the mentioned mechanical effect can produce irreversible damages in the grain side that decreases the quality of the final product. The static vegetable tanning processes are mainly used in those kind of articles (sole Leather and similar) where the amount of tanning agents to make the product is so high that even the right control of the main parameters involved in the process can't avoid heavy damages in the grain side. With this kind of articles, the skins are immersed in pits with different tannin offers. In this case, the mechanical effect is none, which makes the process long in time (between 7 to 90 days). This point reduces the productivity and forces to administrate a bigger leather stock. The main objective of this PhD is to design a vegetable tanning process assisted by ultrasound, which could take advantage from the standard processes used nowadays and could solve the problems related with each one. This could bring us to a final product with a better quality and a possible process optimization that could make it industrially viable. The system uses the ultrasound waves to reduce the molecular size of the tanning agent's micelles, producing a quick diffusion through the skin without the use of any mechanical effect, and speeding up the process compared to the static system. In order to achieve the exposed objectives the thesis has been structured in 3 parts: Initial study: Pilot study to determine the performance of the parameters involved in the ultrasonic tannage and selection of the ideal conditions in order to prepare the next steps of the process. Study in the penetration stage: Based on the results obtained in the pilot study, an assessment in the penetration stage is proposed. In this phase, the parameters that take part in the tanning agent's diffusion all over the fiber structure of the skin will be studied. Study in the fixation stage: Based on the results obtained in the penetration stage the study in the fixation stage will be proposed. In this phase, the parameters performing in the fixation of the tanning agents will be studied once it has penetrated completely, in order to optimize the fixation and complete the tanning process. In order to evaluate the trials done in the experimental stages, the tanning degree will be used as an indicator. This parameter links the percentage of fixed tannin with the percentage of hide substance, enabling to quantify the absorption. Due to the difficulty to obtain this parameter and the amount of trials done to make this thesis, it will be worth to use new methodologies to obtain this value for future studies. After assessing the 3 stages, an ultrasonic working process alternative to the existing systems will be proposed.

    La utilización de los ultrasonidos en sistemas de curtición vegetal presenta ventajas frente a los sistemas más consolidados en la industria en la actualidad: curticiones vegetales dinámicas donde se utilizan los bombos como reactor, y curticiones vegetales estáticas donde se utilizan las tinas como reactor. Las curticiones vegetales dinámicas se utilizan en la mayoría de artículos curtidos al vegetal y presentan un tiempo de proceso reducido (1 a 4 días) basado en la rápida difusión del tanino debido al elevado efecto mecánico que se produce en el interior de los bombos. En contrapartida este efecto es el causante de daños irreversibles en la dermis de la piel que pueden reducir la calidad del producto considerablemente. Las curticiones vegetales estáticas se utilizan principalmente en aquellos artículos (suelas y similares) donde la oferta de tanino para curtir la piel es tan elevada que ni el estricto control de los principales parámetros que intervienen en la curtición evitan daños muy graves en la dermis de la piel. En estos casos se opta por sistemas estáticos de curtición donde la piel se sumerge en tinas a diferente concentración de tanino para realizar la curtición. En estos sistemas el efecto mecánico es prácticamente nulo, pero el tiempo de proceso es largo (7 a 90 días) hecho que reduce la productividad y obliga a gestionar un stock más elevado. El objetivo principal de esta tesis es diseñar un sistema de curtición vegetal por ultrasonidos a nivel industrial que aproveche las ventajas de los sistemas que se utilizan actualmente i evites sus problemáticas a fin y efecto de conseguir un producto final con una mayor calidad y un grado de optimización del proceso que le permita ser viable industrialmente. El sistema prevé utilizar la potencia ultrasónica para disminuir el tamaño molecular de las micelas de tanino y de esta manera conseguir una rápida difusión a través de la piel, sin necesidad de aplicar efecto mecánico a bombo, acelerando mucho el proceso respecto a un sistema estático.

    The tanning industry is currently influenced by the globalization of international markets. Competitiveness among industries has increased substantially. This therefore results in the need to further control the tanning processes in order to adjust each process thus preventing potentialmanufacturing errors. To avoid compromising production, controls must be performed in the least possible time. In the case of vegetable-tanned leather the official method for determining the `degree of tannage¿or `combined tannins¿ parameters is not directly from a single standardized test method. The procedure to obtain these parameters involves performing several independent analyses and these presentseveral drawbacks. The process is slow, involves the use of pollutants and the reproducibility of results depends on the experience of the analysts who perform the test. Consequently, the determination isinfeasible in some cases. Our work aims to develop a new analytical method for determining the tanning degree and theparameters associated with its calculation (combined tannins, hide substance and leather substance) of leathers tanned with vegetable extracts in order to solve this problem. We prepared a wide group of leathers for this purpose, tanned with a mixture of vegetable extracts (mimosa and quebracho) andhaving different values of the degree of tannage. Initially, the spectra of leather samples were recorded by Fourier-Transform Mid-Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Attenuated Total Reflectance cell (ATR).They were also recorded with Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy (NIR) using a fibre optic module. The subsequent mathematical treatment of spectral signals by a Partial Least Squares Regression (PLSR) chemometric method enabled the calculation of the parameters studied. The analytical method proposed has several advantages over the traditional method. It enables direct leather analysis, without any manipulation, in a very short time and without using chemicals.

    This paper presents a review of the literature on low carbon and low embodied energy materials in buildings. Embodied energy is defined and discussed vs. operating energy of buildings and its growing importance due to the implementation of the Energy Building Performance Directive(EBPD) in Europeas example.The difficulty of measuring embodied energy and the difficulty incomparing published data are highlighted, showing an example of proposed new methodology found in the literature. Relationship between embodied energy and embodied CO2 or CO2 footprint is defined. Different materials defined in the literature as low carbon materials are referred, such as cement and concrete, wood, bricks, rammed earth and sandstone. The review shows the research efforts found in the literature to develop new materials with less embodied energy. Finally, the effect of material substitution in the embodied energy of a building is reviewed in the literature

    This study concerns the implementation and improvement of a system that applies ultrasound technology to vegetable tanning floats. The system is versatile and requires no major modifications or investment expense for tanneries. In particular, the study investigated grain fineness and fixation of tannins in relation to several mechanical approaches, which included: no mechanical effect (pits), drum, ultrasound, and ultrasound plus drum. A comparative study of energy expenses on the basis of the mechanical effect being used was also carried out.

    This work studies the effect of several variables on a series of properties of the final leather obtained from chrome tanning, using ultrasounds as the sole mechanical effect during the tanning operation. The variables studied (at two levels by means of a 23 factorial design) are tanning temperature, condition of chrome offered (solid or dissolved) and salt basicity. Our studies indicate that the results obtained measuring parameters such as struck-through time of tanning agent, chromium uptake and its distribution, shrinkage temperature, tensile strength, tear load, grain distension and leather burst distention significantly depend on the previously selected level of one or more of the variables being studied. The study of the evolution of the concentration and basicity of the chromium salts has led us to conclude that reutilization is possible. Results show that ultrasound use in chrome tanning is a possibility to consider in the case of leather goods in which the use of drum may not be advisable.

    Wastes from tanneries present a good opportunity to produce biogas and use it in high temperature fuel cells for combined heat and power systems. Biogas is considered a renewable fuel, domestically produced and free of carbon emissions, while molten carbonate fuel cells are ultra-clean and highly efficient power generators. In this paper, we study the economic viability of a fuel cell (considerating capacities from 300kW to 1200kW) operating on biogas. The results are based on Spanish legislation, which establishes a special feed-in tariff for biogas and cogeneration. Paybacks range from 5.7 to 8.5 years depending on the fuel cell capacity. Due to the high investment and operating and maintenance cost, the Spanish feed-in tariff for cogeneration using biogas is not enough to make the project economically viable in a short-term. Further fuel cell price reducation and longer lifetime as well as new government subsidies are required

    Se estudia y pone a punto un sistema externo de aplicación de los ultrasonidos en los baños de curtición vegetal. Este sistema es muy versátil y su uso no requiere realizar modificaciones en la tenería ni supone grandes gastos de inversión. Se estudia, entre otras propiedades, la finura de flor obtenida y la fijación de los taninos en la piel en función del efecto mecánico empleado para curtir: sin efecto mecánico (tina), bombo, ultrasonidos y combinación de ultrasonidos más bombo. También se realiza una valoración económica del gasto energético en función del efecto mecánico empleado. Los resultados obtenidos en este trabajo indican que el uso de los ultrasonidos en la curtición con extractos vegetales es una alternativa a tenir en cuenta si se pretende realizar el proceso sin usar el bombo. Se mejora significativamente la calidad de la flor de los cueros y se soslaya en gran parte el inconveniente de una excesiva duración del proceso, típico de una curtición realitzada en tina

    Se ha desarrollado un método analítico para determinar el índice de curtición (IC), así como de los parámetros asociados a su cálculo, mediante la técnica instrumental de la espectroscopía de infrrojo medio con Transformada de Fourier (FTIR) con un módulo ATR y el tratamiento quimiométrico de los datos espectrales. Los primeros estudios realizados ponen de manifiesto que es posible realizar la determinación de varios parámetros simultáneamente (IC, taninos, sustancia piel, sustancia cuero) utilizando los espectros FTIR registrados directamente sobre las pieles curtidas con una mezcla de mimosa y quebracho, reduciendo espectacularmente el tiempo de análisis y evitando la utilización de productos contaminantes
