About the Event
Presentation Summary: Join us for a presentation of BioFiltro’s largest winery wastewater system at O’Neill Vintners. At the winery in Parlier, CA, you’ll find over 200 million red wiggler worms treating 80 million gallons of winery process water for irrigation reuse. By using worms for aeration, O’Neill is avoiding the consumption of 2.1MWh per year, enough to power over 200 homes. The system is also sludge-free, and instead generates 1,225 dry tons of worm castings to boost the soil health of 500 acres of farmland.
Speaker Bio: Sarah holds a BS in biological sciences from UC Davis. She has experience in dairy herd management, aquatic toxicology, solar and EV charging design, and now working for BioFiltro’s worm-powered wastewater solutions.
