Purpose and goal

Investigate the possibilities for producing and selling Swedish wool products that can have several life cycles and ultimately be completely compostable. Find business models that both contribute to profitability throughout the chain and to more sustainable consumption Examine how we can gain added value for the raw material while keeping down the costs at the processing stage and reaching out to consumers so that all joints benefit and on equal terms.

Expected results and effects

The goal is to get a solution where you can get economies at all stages and benefit from the raw material into the smallest fiber and any residual or by-products.

Planned approach and implementation

The circular perspective is added to the flow already included in a pilot from 2018, and we want to develop business models that are adapted both to stimulate more sustainable consumption and to increase value at all stages of production and recycling. We also want to increase product credibility to the customer as well as facilitate to make environmentally conscious choices.
