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

 

WDS is a project co-funded by the European Community under the LIFE financial instrument with the Grant Agreement LIFE 11 ENV/ES/588.This project integrates the environment into the Community policies as it contributes to develop and implement policies designed to ensure sustainable management and waste valorization.
