Bohemia Sekt reduces environmental impact Builds new wastewater treatment plant in Mikulov 

Starý Plzenec, 15 July 2020 – Víno Mikulov Winery, a member of the Bohemia Sekt group, has begun operating its own wastewater treatment plant. The total investment, including construction work, added up to CZK 28 million.

Construction of the new wastewater treatment plant started in August 2019, and it went live in June of this year. The plant uses anaerobic purification technology, which significantly improves the purity of the water discharged to the sewerage system. Water contaminated with organic compounds goes through a multiphase mechanical biological treatment process that destroys undesirable waste. Quality biogas, a clean and green form of energy, is produced as a by-product of anaerobic purification and is used to heat the winery's production facilities.

The winery selected the specifications for the wastewater treatment plant with a view to the needs of the new, modern grape press that the company plans to put into operation for the 2021 harvest. The new grape press can process up to 8 million kilogrammes of grapes, with an option to expand to up to 12 million.

“Given the capacity of the grape press, we needed the most reliable and best quality wastewater solution possible. That’s why we chose cutting-edge mechanical biological treatment technology and a generous capacity that can easily hold the entire daily maximum level of wastewater during regular operations as well as during the grape harvest, when the volume increases,” Víno Mikulov Winery director František Drahonský explains.
