The footwear industry is related to the environment through the consumption of raw materials, energy and water, and the production of waste, discharges and atmospheric emissions. This project studies the footwear industry in Lagos de Moreno which generates considerable quantities of solid waste composed of various materials that can be recycled in multiple ways in order to manufacture new products or improve existing ones. Attending megatrends on environmental care the development of new or improved ecological products has become necessary. Hence the importance of searching and generating new technologies and products that can be adapted to satisfy local needs, which would provide environmental benefits in the regions where this type of industry is present, as well as the generation of economic resources derived from the exploitation of new selling products. This project was researched starting from industrial waste footwear, the chemical reactivity between synthetic rubber sole and caustic solutions with different concentrations and temperatures which will derive in the development of Intellectual Property.
