Germany, Pro Tannery solves neighbourhood problems with a filter

A new air filter: this is how the German tannery Pro Tannery solves neighbourhood problems. The company from Weida, a city in Thuringia, will soon install a new device to reduce the emission of bad smells. City residents are pointing their fingers at the tannery, complaining about the spread of miasmas. But the heads of Pro Tannery, who are only waiting for the end of the health emergency to carry out the work, send the accusations to the sender. It’s not them, it’s their defence, the only cause of the bad smells disturbing the city.

Pro Tannery solves neighbourhood problems

As reported by mdr.de, the Environmental Agency ordered the company to install a new air filter to reduce the emission of bad smells into the air. The new system would cost around 100,000 euros. The operation should have been carried out in the past few weeks, but the spread of Coronavirus and the consequent lockdown have slowed the works. During this period, however, the citizens of Weida and the mayor himself, Heinz Hopfe, kept the issue open in the local debate.

A green light is needed

Pro Tannery has announced that it is ready to install the new filter. However, before being activated, the system requires a verification by those in  charge of controlling emissions and their consequent approval. Pro Tannery has entrusted the verification to an authorised external agency. Despite this, the company has not remained silent. The origin of the smells that have long enveloped the German city would not be clear. And even the experts charged with investigating the situation have not found the root cause. While Pro Tannery continues to claim that it is not the origin of those miasmas, there are those who attribute the origin of the problems to the city sewer system
