Wineries pose a challenge to treatment technologies as discharge varies greatly in flow and strength throughout the season. BioFiltro's robust BIDA® System dynamically adapts to influent parameters, thrives off of high sugars, and can handle months of low loadings. The system also can survive off of the carbon based wood shavings for clients who only operate a few months of the year.
Worms enable a hillside boutique winery in Napa County to regenerate process water into water immediately apt for reuse in drip irrigation on vineyards.
BIDA® System consumes up to 95% less energy than traditional wastewater technologies while delivering the same, if not better, removal rates. Many clients are able to receive substantial credits and incentives from their local utility company while self gen clients are able to recapture kW for use with other infrastructure.
- Intermittent Continuous Flow Process: Most wastewater technologies require energy 24/7. The BIDA® System pumps activate only when your facility discharges and, due to the intermittent irrigation schedule, typically demand energy for a total of 8 hours.
- Low Energy Requirement: BioFiltro engineers design plants to optimize gravity fed processes to not only minimize energy demand, but also increase system reliability. Minimum horsepower is needed to operate and typical plants consume 0.0007 kWh/gallon treated.
