What we do

Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater produced in wine making facilities contains mainly soluble sugars and ethanol associated with the wine. These “contaminants” are dissolved into the water and cannot be separated by mechanical means. The Lyve System uses naturally occurring bacteria to breakdown these compounds.


Lyve Systems is continuously improving the treatment process by researching and adding new technology. Our systems are now equipped with two new technologies: the MBBR & the MBR.


Because the incoming wastewater stream is always changing, periodic adjustments need to be made to the process. Lyve technicians can assist the operator in making these management changes and in fact can virtually control the system remotely via internet, reducing the need for daily supervision from on-site personnel.


Lyve Systems is an industry-focused wastewater solution geared towards wine production. With over ten-plus years of experience, Lyve Systems is the leading winery wastewater treatment system. Lyve Systems is able to target varying size wineries from small family-owned to large leading winery corporations.
