Brewing, winemaking and distilling: overview of wastewater treatment and utilisation schemes

Dr. Luc Fillaudeau is research director at INRA (French National Institute for Agricultural Research) and works at the Laboratory for Biosystems and Chemical Engineering LISBP (biotechnology, system biology and chemical engineering).

His research is dedicated to the study of coupled transfers and transfer limitation in food and bioprocesses. His activity can be described by 3 keywords: cell cultures (polyphasic and reactive medium), bioreactor (alternative and in-situ instrumentation, BRM), physical characterization (morphology, rheometry).

After his PhD in 1998 about clarification of fermentation broth with membrane process, his activity explored (i) alternative technologies (dynamic filtration, ohmic heating) in food processing (brewing, dairy,...) and since 2005 (ii) the physical properties of complex biological matrices and bioperformance of industrial bioprocesses.

Pr Christophe CLÉMENT is currently the head of the Induced Resistance and Plant Bioprotection lab in the University of Reims.

He is also leading the Research Federative Structure Condorcet dealing with bioeconomy and anchored in the northern part of France and in Belgium.

After a PhD in 1994 about pollen physiology in the anther of Lilium under standard and stressing conditions, his activities moved to (i) the understanding of plant immunity when submitted to both biotic (pathogens) and abiotic stresses (climate change) and (ii) the strategies to stimulate plant defenses, especially using biocontrol through elicitation with amphiphilic molecules and bacteria able to produce these molecules.

mouretWinemaking fermentation: from online monitoring to modeling and multicriteria optimisation

Dr. Jean-Roch Mouret joined the Research Unit Sciences for Enology at INRA (National Institute for Agricultural Research) in Montpellier in 2008. With a permanent staff of 56 persons and 45-50 non-permanent staff, this research unit is one of the most important organizations involved in research in enology worldwide.

Since 2015, he is the co-leader of the FLAM (Alcoholic Fermentation: Yeasts, Aromas, Metabolism). The team FLAM is investigating alcoholic fermentation by wine yeasts with the aim to understand and control this process and to improve the quality and the aromatic profile of wines.

Dr. Mouret is a specialist of winemaking fermentation, elaborating new control strategies to optimize fermentation kinetics and wine quality. These strategies integrate the optimization of yeast nutrition and are based on innovative approaches combining automatic monitoring and predictive models. In his laboratory, specific tools have been elaborated to study and optimize alcoholic fermentation in highly controlled conditions.

rochardEco-design of cellars: ecological trends for the treatment of winery wastewater

After experimenting with a wide variety of devices for treating cellar effluents in the Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC), Joël Rochard became a member of the Department of National Sustainable Environment at the French Institute of Vine and Wine (IFV).

Beyond the cellar effluents, he conducted experiments on the treatment of wastewater from sprayer cleaning. He also participated in the development of strategies for measuring and reducing the impact of the wine industry on the greenhouse effect. 

In addition, he initiated the implementation of sustainable winegrowing territories, including the adaptation of viticulture to climate changes, the protection and recovery of landscapes and biodiversity. He was coordinator of a European Life project called Biodivine on biodiversity and involving France, Spain and Portugal.
