Collaboration with VITEC27/09/2012
INOXPA is currently undertaking a project (INNPACTO 2010) together with the Fundació Parc Technologic Vi (VITEC, “wine technology park”) and the FREIXENET company, intended to standardise the WineBrane skid, based on the hydrophobic membrane technology developed by INOXPA, that reduces the content of oxygen in wine and alcohol degree on an industrial scale.
The four-year project "Reduction of the content of oxygen and alcohol degree in wine by means of hydrophobic membranes" (IPT-060000-2010-016). It is funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. This project will allow INOXPA to develop parameterisation and validation protocol for the WineBrane skid.
The consortium for the project development is formed by INOXPA - VITEC and FREIXENET as user and its role is the validation of the technology in industrial conditions.
The Parc Tecnològic del Vi (VITEC) is situated in Falset, capital of the Priorat region. The center is equipped with laboratories, cold rooms, tasting rooms, microvinification rooms and the latest technology equipmet as well as two WineBrane skids, laboratoryscale one and the other one for 5000 L, for testing.
