An expo of successful pilot projects in an Ontario winery
On November 12th, as part of the 2014 World-Water Tech conference and our ongoing work with the Wine Council of Ontario, BLOOM and WaterTap hosted a tour of Cave Spring winery to showcase two technologies piloted within the facility over the past year: EcoEthic‘s BioGill, and Mantech‘s PeCOD. We brought together international businesses, journalists, technology providers, government, and wine, to explore what is being done in Ontario’s wineries around water management.
Some mingling before the tour.
