Treatment of effluents from the wine sector with cork waste


The cork sector currently generates a high amount of by-products that can not be used in the manufacture of cork stoppers, which ultimately goes directly to landfills. The LIFE Ecorkwaste project, co-financed by the EU, aims to demonstrate the feasibility of valuing cork waste not currently used for the treatment of wastewater in the wine sector, through a treatment wetland.
