VitaStim Winery Waste Water Treatment
You are here:

New VitaStim Winery introduces micronutrients and biostimulants to significantly enhance BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) reduction, keeping bacteria thriving in low food conditions, bringing winery waste water back into compliance, while lowering the need for maintenance and allowing for the reuse of water.

Wineries can struggle to keep their wastewater a sustainable operation because of their variable production stages. The loading can shift from almost nothing to incredible high points.

For example, organic loading during racking can be 10 times as much as seen in municipal waste water. When a loading that massive shifts to almost nothing, it causes upsets in the bacterial environment, which immediately leads to permit violations in TSS, ammonia, and BOD.

Among these pressing concerns, wineries are being forced to upgrade their wastewater process to meet the changing demands of environmental compliance. Septic systems and traditional wastewater lagoons are failing to lower BOD, TSS, and tannin to required levels.

Now, introducing VitaStim Winery can save older or failing winery wastewater systems.

Specially designed for winery and high sugar waste, VitaStim Winery has select biostimulants that give bacteria the tools they need to break down high BOD loads, while the micronutrients introduced give the biomass a fighting chance during light loads.

No matter what type of wastewater process, VitaStim Winery will benefit it. VitaStim Winery will keep the bacterial environment in check by introducing the right amount of biostimulants to lower BOD during heavy production – and keep the bacteria alive during light. This will lower labour costs and allow wineries to reuse water, promoting a greener, more sustainable winery operation.
