Geotube® for Environmental Engineering
Millions of gallons of sludge have been pumped into Geotube® containers for containment and dewatering of industrial waste, municipal sludge, and marine sediments. Paper mills, chemical companies, and nuclear power plants are just a few of the clients that have benefited from Geotube® technology.
|How Geotube® containers work:
• Geotube® Containment: High strength permeable geotextiles with uniquely designed retention properties are fabricated into Geotube® containers that can be filled with fine grain sludge, hazardous contaminated soils, or dredged waste materials.
• Geotube® Dewatering: Excess water drains from the Geotube® containers through the small pores in the geotextiles resulting in effective dewatering and efficient volume reduction of the contained material. This volume reduction allows for the repeated filling of the Geotube® container. In many cases the decanted water is of a quality that can be returned to native waterways or for reuse.
• Geotube® Consolidation: After the final cycle of filling and dewatering, the retained fine grain materials can continue to consolidate by desiccation because the residual water vapor escapes through the geotextile.
