Solid Waste Systems

  • David R. Storm


In the United States, no winery site utility subsystem has changed more dramatically in the last decade than the management of solid waste. Other wine producing regions of the world are also reexamining their solid waste handling and disposal practices. The principal forces which have brought about the changes were as follows:
  • Landfill sites were being filled at an alarming rate.

  • Untapped opportunities for waste-to-energy projects emerged.

  • Concern was expressed at all levels of government on the poor management of natural resources.

  • The strong and sensible voice of the environmental movement was finally being heard around the world.
