GLRPPR Sector Resource: Energy-Efficient Wool Scouring Facility

Energy-Efficient Wool Scouring Facility

This New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) report describes the "Greenfleece" facility at Hoyt Farm Nursery in New York. The goal was to create an environmentally sound, totally integrated washing facility for raw wool -- one that could produce one or more retail wool products, while using what is universally referred to as "waste" from the scouring in a closed loop to produce energy as well as a beneficial by-product.
