At Tamburlaine, special attention is given to water, solid waste and energy management. Waste water is recycled. Recycling of glass, cardboard, paper is done. Special lights are used to save energy. Buildings are well-ventilated with proper insulation. Future initiatives include tapping into alternative sources of energy such as the use of solar energy for lighting and use of solar and wind energy for energy generation. Energy saving technologies might be employed by the winery in the future such as off-peak equipment operation. Tamburlaine is a part of Sustainable Advantage program, an initiative of New South Wales Department of Environment and Climate Change. Some of its goals include measuring carbon footprint, proper use of energy resources and reducing environmental risk.
Tamburlaine Wines is committed to Environmental safety which can be seen with its efforts of re-engineering its machines and equipment to reduce carbon emissions. Below are few examples-
· Re-engineering Tamburlaine Winery fridge plant which saved 148 MWh energy and around hundred thousand dollars annually and cutting down carbon emission by 450 tons.
· Similarly, Nitrogen generator was re-engineered bringing down annual cost by 75% and carbon emissions by 65%.
· The vehicles at the winery run on biofuel, reducing carbon emission by 10 tons annually.
Tamburlaine is not only a member but has set a fine example for members of ‘Australian Packaging Covenant’ in recycled packaging.
Tamburlaine exports its organic wines to Canada, USA, China, Sweden, Japan, UK, Denmark, and Nepal. The winery may also tie up with Thailand, Korea, Norway, and Malaysia in future.
