Reduced COD More Than 90% for Water Reuse & Vine Irrigation
Ridge vineyards - California
Project: bioPULSE™ MBR for California Vineyard Production
Industry: Food & Beverage; Craft Beverage
- Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)
- Total Suspended Solids (TSS) Removal
- Water Reuse
Problem: The vineyard needed to install a wastewater treatment system to reduce the BOD/TSS from the wine processing waste and use the system effluent for vine irrigation.
Solution: bioprocessH2O supplied a bioPULSE™ Airlift Containerized Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) incorporating an energy efficient airlift external tubular and backwashable membrane that significantly reduces power consumption. The permeate from the membrane process is UV disinfected and being used to irrigate the vines.
Status/Results: The bioPULSE™ MBR has proven effective at reducing the BOD, COD, and TSS from the vineyard's wastewater.
