Wine wastewater treatment

The effluents resulting from the production of wine are characterized by:
   - high organic load due to the presence of ethanol and / or sugars;
   - nutrient deficiency (nitrogen and phosphorus);
   - variable pH, usually very acidic in the vintage;
   - and appreciable concentrations of suspended solids.

The NatureWaves® and Cork NatureWaves® growing popularity is due in part to the fact that the treatment system offers the advantages of a solution for the water decontamination with a passive process, natural, low-maintenance and very simple operation.

Wine wastewater treatment

The plant roots play a key role in the wastewater treatment processes, due to the contact provided with the water. The plants roots provide an area for development of biofilms communities containing microorganisms responsible for a number of very important treatment processes. This symbiosis allows removal of BOD5, nitrogen, phosphates and others, and their incorporation into plant biomass.

Advantages of the wine production wastewater ecological treatment:
   - Small area of implantation;
   - No sludge production (natural disposal of sludge through the NatureWaves® and Cork NatureWaves®);
   - Do not have the problems associated with filamentous bulking;
   - Low electrical consumption;
   - It does not produce unpleasant odours;
   - The operation of the WWTP is very simple;
   - Costs associated with maintenance are very low;
   - Ability to withstand fluctuations of flow and loads of bodies;
   - Greater retention of biomass compared to other treatment systems.

We develop solutions to install in any country.
