The area of interest is the synthesis and study of properties of new types of hydrogels made from pelt waste, in order to recover waste from tanneries. The complex aspects related to protein projects in the leather industry are addressed by accurately determining a chemical composition, a skin designer and a different possibility of recovery and claiming a value, the use of biotechnology. The complex aspects related to protein waste in the leather industry are addressed by accurately determining the chemical composition of leather waste and the different possibilities of recovery and recycling using biotechnology. The technologies used in order to obtain a smart hydrogel based on collagen and natural polymers are non-polluting and waste-free. An important aspect to note is that the smart hydrogel is obtained through an almost identical technological process to the one used for medical collagen. An extensive study of the potential for reuse and recycling of leather protein waste in ecological conditions by developing innovative procedures for obtaining an NPK collagen matrix to be used successfully as smart fertilizer for modifying nutrient-poor soils. Hydrogels with collagen structure are characterized by a high-performance instrumental analysis system (FT-IR-ATR, SEM, EDAX, etc.).
