We are working to improve this section, sorry

Who we are

AD-WINE is a Marie Curie network project, included into the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission, and has started on December 1, 2011.

It is an interdisciplinary project, with 5 partners made up by an spanish wastewater company leader in the field of wastewater treatment (Agua, Energía y Medio Ambiente Servicios Integrales, AEMA) and four leading non-commercial organizations: Consorzio di Ricerche Applicate Alla Biotecnologia (CRAB) from Italy, Institut Francais De La Vigne et du Vin (IFV) from France, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universitaet Hannover (LUH) from Germany, and University of Newcastle Upon Tyne (UNEW) from United Kingdom.


Nowadays, winery industry treats millions of tons of grape and produces million cubic meters of effluents that, if not treated, cause environmental pollution. In general, the winery effluent mainly contain high organics pollutants charge and other pollutants such us mineral residues, earth, detergents and other toxic contaminants.

The treatment of waste waters from wineries are usually done by aerobic systems, which involves high energy costs because of the needs of oxygen required by this system. Moreover, during the treatment process, an excess of sludge is generated, which must be managed and leads to extra costs.

Therefore, to provide a solution to effluents treatment of medium size wineries, it is necessary a profitable depuration system, with low energy costs, high yields in the elimination of pollutants and low waste production.  

What AD-WINE will get

This project aims to develop an innovative anaerobic treatment plant, using high performance digesters able to treats medium sized wineries effluents, since actually anaerobic digestion only is profitable in wineries of big size.

The development of such digesters is presented as a good option to wineries due to its different advantages over aerobic processes: will help to lower the energy and operation cost of the plant, significantly reducing the production of sludge and residues, allowing a better valorisation of by-products and biogas, as well as will allow to comply with limits established by the legislation, and carry out the European objectives in terms of production of renewable energies.
