Reducing the Environmental Impact of Wine Filtration

Filtration is used to clarify and stabilize wine before bottling. The filtration process must be controlled, repeatable and must not affect the body, aroma or taste of the wine. It can be a water, consumables and energy intensive process. Sartorius filtration systems allow you to recycle and reuse water used for cleaning and sterilization, recover energy from heat generated during cleaning, and optimize the use of filtration consumables to maximize their shelf-life. The systems reduce consumption and waste, while maintaining cleaning efficiency and eliminating microbiological contamination. This white paper presents a series of studies carried out to compare the consumption of energy, water and consumables when using Sartorius’ wine filtration systems compared with other, widely used systems.
