In this study, the components which will cause emissions in the old tanning industry were determined, and the processes as potential polluting were shown. Twenty sheepskins from a facility of meat and meat products located in Izmir were processed with a typical clothing sheepskin recipe. Samples were taken from certain production steps and analysed according to Headspace-GC/FID/MS and GC-FID-MS for the volatile organic compounds. This study also evaluated the production steps which will cause emission problems.
