NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The proposed techology demonstration and deployment project will integrate two technologies to increase the water and energy efficiency of a large-scale wine production facility located in Sonoma County. An efficient reverse osmosis water treatment technology will be used to treat barrel wash water to potable standards for reuse in barrel washing. This process could save approximately 90% of the water used annually for barrel washing, or over 1.4 million gallons per year, and 42,500 kWh of embedded energy annually. A heat exchanger technology system will be used to both heat and cool white wine in the stabilization process.
