With more UK vineyards entering the market place and with English sparkling wines picking up award after award, UK producers should be more mindful of recycling their wastewater, according to Phys.Org. It is estimated that to produce one glass of wine, some 29 gallons of water are used and with ever increasing mains water prices, coupled with expensive wastewater disposal costs, wastewater storage and processing should be higher up on growers’ agenda.
From washing bottles, scrubbing barrels, keeping floors clean and irrigating vineyards, that’s on heck of a lot of water being used. However, Enduramaxx cone bottom tanks enable growers in all sectors to recycle their water. Enduramaxx cone bottom tanks are very rugged storage tanks made from a ribbed, single piece of UV-stabilised polyethylene. So firstly, wastewater can be stored safely and securely. The varying degree conical bottoms allow for impurities and particles to sink to the bottom where they can be drained away. The result is recycled wastewater that is ideal for irrigating vines, providing significant savings over mains water supplies.
