Eco-Efficient Dry Wool Scouring with total by-products recovery (WDS) project aims at a sustainable and innovative wool scouring process

Focus of the project:


– Obtaining valuable scoured clean wool of improved combing yield.

– Maximizing the value and recovery yield of grease wool components, such as a water soluble fraction, a solvent soluble fraction (wool grease- lanoline), dust and vegetal fibre; obtaining by-products with a market value.

– Saving water and energy in comparison with conventional aqueous process: reducing the load in waste effluents
