World Water Tech –  Cave Spring Tour

World Water Tech – Cave Spring Tour

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.
