Winery Wastewater

Overview

Each winery generates wastewater that is unique in terms of composition, volume and seasonal variations. Treatment technologies range from aeration, settling ponds or wetlands, discharge to sewer systems, or even trucking wastewater offsite.

During harvest and peak production times, wine-makers can struggle with limited or inefficient wastewater treatment, land for dispersal, odor issues from storage ponds, high surcharges or expensive hauling fees, along with other environmental and pollution issues.

Reducing BOD & COD in wastewater prior to discharge can help a winery simplify the management of its wastewater and deliver savings on disposal costs while maintaining regulatory compliance.

Benefits

Using BioGill® technology, winemakers can benefit from significant savings in wastewater discharge costs and improved environmental operations. For those wineries with land discharge BioGill® treatment will significantly reduce any long term degradation to soil and protect against runoff pollution.

Let nature do the work for you

Our patented Gill/Membrane provide an ideal home for microorganisms to form resilient biofilms that break down nutrients in wastewater.

Reduce BOD by 90%+

Our patented bioreactors are designed to maximise nutrient delivery and provide an ideal oxygen rich environment for these microorganisms.
