ECONOMICALWater is saved & reused • Bacteria was developed to replace costly lime • Sludge used towards 200 tons of compost/yr
• Affordable bacteria replace the necessity for costly lime supplements.
• Particles that do not dissolve in the water drains out once the water goes through the Delta Separator and the sediment is used in the farm's compost. The farm makes about 200 tons of compost per year.
PROMINENT SA CELLAR
APPEAL • ECO-TOURISMA picnic area was inspired • Careful wetland construction contributes to the existing landscape.
The Wastewater Bioremediation Plant improves this farm's efforts towards Sustainable Production
Constructed wetlands with enzymes and bacteria in a joint operation with a Compact Bioreactor purifies all this wine producer's wastewater while saving through water reuse and the elimination of municipal wastewater management.
In the context that Wine Production requires between 5l to 8l water for every one litre of wine produced, the necessity for water recovery and sustainable wastewater treatment is clear.
The wetlands created an opportunity for Eco-tourism
• The wetlands and the ability to reuse the water for garden irrigation sparked the development of a picnic area.
• Careful wetland construction ensures a positive contribution to the existing landscape as well as the prevention of soil pollution due to premature leaching of effluent. There are three wetlands of about 50 m long and 2 m broad. Where necessary the wetlands with natural vegetation are fitted with plastic to prevent leaching before water filtration is complete.
