Climate change is increasing the number of pests and diseases on vineyard plots. Faced with this problem, treatments on the vines are increasing. The project aims to decontaminate the water that runs off these plots through a new decontamination system: the water circulates through a purification system before being released. The system was able to be set up and tested during the project.
Mitigation of the risk of water contamination.
A prototype for the decontamination of contaminated water was developed, optimised and tested throughout the project. After passing through the PHOTOPUR, the water is depolluted and can then be reintroduced into the local wastewater, respecting the environment. It works according to a photocatalytic process (allowing certain chemical reactions to be accelerated) using materials activated under UV and solar radiation. This technology can be used in all vineyard plots.It works according to a photocatalytic process (allowing certain chemical reactions to be accelerated) using materials activated under UV and solar radiation.The project has also made it possible to develop an eco-label for the sustainable management of wastewater from wine-growing. The project therefore aims to extend the improvement in the quality of water from vineyard plots.
Since its closure, the website has received little information about the results of the project.
But many websites mention the project and its results. The communication of the project has therefore been fruitful.
