The article addresses the issues about wastewater management and treatment in wineries in New Zealand. Minimizing waste produced is encouraged as well as segregating strong wastes for separate off-site disposal to minimize the size and cost of the treatment plant. There is difficulty for large wineries that conduct treatment, storage, and re-use during winter. The capital costs of treatment plants are affected by factors such as the number of unit operations and the type of aerobic biological process used.
