Waste Water

Waste waterThe Waste Water Harvesting Project is a joint initiative between Adelaide Brighton and Vinpac International that explores new ways to conserve wastewater from one operation for use at the other.

Vinpac is a wine bottling plant with an operation that results in approximately 10,000 litres of wastewater per day. A water storage and treatment facility was constructed at Vinpac to capture and prepare the wastewater for use at the Angaston Plant.

The use of recycled water through this initiative has provided a saving of 120 megalitres per year from natural water resources, with an annual reduction of 33% for Angaston's slurry mill water consumption.

Adelaide Brighton and Vinpac have worked closely with the Department of Health and other externally certified laboratories and leading design consultants to manage any potential health risks associated with recycled water.
