 Project objective

The main novelty of Woolvation project is the introduction of an eco-innovative cultivation block for vegetable production in greenhouses that is made from a natural raw material (sheep wool), and being 100% bio-degradable it will have no negative impact on the environment. The introduction of Woolvation blocks means an entirely new application for sheep wool, whose chain-of-use will become 100% sustainable, from farm to farm, or from farm to biogas. The overall Woolvation idea has the ambition to • Give sheep wool a new recovery potential, which will reduce wasted sheep wool to a minimum • Minimise the use of rockwool in greenhouses, which become a hazardous waste after use • Provide a new soil amending product (mixed with manure or pure) to farmers • Provide new feedstock (mixed with manure) for bio-gas plants To achieve that the aim of this Project is to study the feasibility of the Woolvation idea which will include a a)technical feasibility tests b)economic feasibility studies c)business plan.
