Guest Speaker: Dr. Lin Lin Low - Supply Sustainability Manager, Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) & Director of North Para Environment Control P/L
Topic – Promoting Circular Solutions in Wine Making
Water is central to the wine industry. It is one of Treasury Wine Estates’ most critical production inputs. In the face of increasing competitive demands from urban uses, other horticultural crops, and minimum environmental flows water is emerging as a critical part of TWE's social license to operate. TWE acknowledges the company has a significant role to play in being a responsible steward of water in the regions in which it operates. Lin Lin will talk about the TWE approach to water stewardship and the ways the company treats wastewater as a valuable resource that can be recycled to offset demand on natural water systems and provide ongoing local community support.
Dr Lin Lin Low has been working in the wine and spirit industry throughout her career. Lin Lin previously worked for Accolade Wines and Tarac Technologies before joining Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) as Supply Sustainability Manager in June 2021. Her primary role is to drive the sustainability agenda across the supply chain to ensure TWE remains at the forefront of sustainable grape and wine production. She focuses on the implementation of environmental management systems, water and wastewater management, as well as driving technical and process efficiency projects. She is also a director of North Para Environment Control Pty Ltd which provides wastewater treatment services and supplies treated water for irrigation in Barossa.
