ASPECTS REGARDING THE ROMANIAN WOOL FIBRES MANUFACTURING, IN ORDER TO OBTAIN INSULATION MATERIALS FOR BUILDINGS AND TO VALORIZE THIS VALUABLE RAW MATERIAL
Having in view the sustainable development context, the textile sector represents a strong pillar of the Romanian manufacturing industry, which is able to contribute to the valorisation of natural indigenous raw materials. The paper presents the results obtained through developing/ implementing a research project financed by the National Sectorial Program, coordinated by the Romanian Ministry of Research and Innovation, aiming to establish strategic solutions for capitalization of Romanian coarse wool fibres. There are emphasized the results obtained by the collaboration of three important actors from research activity and economic environment: the National Research and Development Institute for Textiles and Leather –INCDTP Bucharest, the only one R&D Institute in Romania, SC MINET SA Company, Râmnicu Vâlcea county – a representative wool manufacturing company for nonwoven materials and the Research Institute for Sheep and Goats Breeding, Palas, Constanta county, partners in the consortium coordinated by the National Research and Development Institute in Constructions, INCERC Bucharest.
