Crossflow filtration with ceramic membrane in the wine-production effluents treatment: a flourishing process
Agri-food waste recovery is a growing activity, especially the waste from the grape industry in wine cellar and distilleries through crossflow filtration technology with ceramic membrane.
The reason for choosing this process is its selectivity, recovery rate on performance, and high temperature resistance (distillery outlet).
This technology allows the filtration of high value chemical compounds (ultrafiltration and/or microfiltration) or the continuous water recovery from the vinasse and the piquette of marc for disposal or reuse in a tertiary water treatment (reverse osmosis).
Moreover, this technology is already mature and well known in the wine industry for the clarification and microbiological stabilization of wines.
