Document Description
E&J Gallo Winery proposes to construct the Livingston Water Innovation and Energy Facility (LWINE) on an 8-acre site adjacent to their existing facilities. The facility would include waste treatment tanks and equipment, buildings to house equipment, and associate site improvements. The project would digest wastewater and pomace to generate biogas and up to 2 megawatts of electricity to offset a portion of the power usage from the utility grid; treat winery wastewater flows to reduce wastewater and contaminant loading on areas designated for land disposal of process wastewater; produce dried fertilizer from biosolids; recover some land currently used for the application of wastewater; and recover heat from internal combustion engines.
