Using wastewater to create greater business sustainability

Efficiency gains in the production process benefits your business. An improved management of winery wastewater not only is better for the environment, but may deliver improvements to your business sustainability. The Grape and Wine Research and Development Corporation (GWRDC) has funded the CSIRO and The Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) to investigate technologies that may help wineries to reduce or recycle wastewater.

The first part of our project is to gain a good understanding of how wineries use water and how they manage wastewater. We’ve developed a survey and hope you can assist us by answering some questions. If you are not the most appropriate person in your winery to complete the survey, please forward this email to someone who is.

The project is intended to help identify technologies worthy of trials and detailed economic investigations. All responses to the survey will be used exclusively for the benefit of this project and no information will be used to identify specific organisations.

Should you have any queries regarding the survey, please contact Karl Forsyth, AWRI Senior Engineer on email: karl.forsyth@awri.com.au or by telephone: 08 8313 6600.
