The new methodology of Wool Dry Scouring (WDS) project focuses on demonstrating new technologies based on closed-loop processing and total waste recovery. In particular, wool grease (lanolin) and wool dust will be recovered as by-products. In this way, they are not discharged into the waste streams and the complex and expensive waste water treatments are avoided.


LEITAT’s role in the project: Support on the experimental process at lab scale. It will provide the characterisation of wool, wool grease and wool dust composition to be valorised as fertilizer.
