Sandihurst Wines

Vineyard Mulch from Recycled Glass

Making a winery more sustainable and finding a new end use for a waste stream both require some innovative thinking. In a collaborative project between Lincoln University and Sandihurst Wines, crushed glass (from bottles and jars) was spread around the base of grapevines see the impact of the product on soil moisture retention, grape cluster weight, ripening and weed suppression

SIFT funding helped this public-private partnership test their groundbreaking idea for reuse of glass.
