Wines of Chile: The natural choice
Wines of Chile Energy Efficiency in the Winery, Climate Change and Carbon Footprint.
The Project “Energy and Climate Change: Exports sizing and competitiveness increase in the wine industry” aimed to channel the interest of the Chilean wine companies in climate change and energy efficiency in a study that contributed technical proposals to confront these subjects nationwide.
The process began with an analysis of the industry’s most energy-intensive and CO2 emission-prone processes and a review of the different opportunities for improvement in the different stages of wine production. The next step was to synthesize the available integral diagnosis tools to develop better means of managing energy and reducing greenhouse gas emission effect (GHG). The best practices in these issues, both in Chile and abroad, were gathered. The project¡s framework called for an intensification of the understanding of the wine industry’s energy flow, which represents an innovative solution to the measuring technology for this industry in particular.
