It was hypothesized that a VFCW combined with adsorption media to remove/recover phosphorus and nitrogen, after idle periods before the microbial community is fully active, will effectively and efficiently treat winery wastewater so that it can be discharged without impact to the environment. Consequently, the objective of this project was to conduct a bench-scale evaluation of this integrated system and used the collected data to develop design criteria for the Michigan winery industry. Further, a mathematical model of the system was examined.
