Abstract:

Worldwide surpluses of wool have depressed the price of wool and nearly eliminated the wool market, especially for the small medium sheep meat producer. These producers have large quantities of surplus wool, an unwanted by-product, which creates a waste disposal problem. The purpose of this project is to create a new value-added product with commercial potential using raw wool, a renewable resource, in the production of a soil erosion control mat. Production of such a product will offer an ecomonic, sustainable, environmentally superior performing altrnative for use by the homeowner, farmer, contractor, transportation agency and public utility.
