Retention ponds lose capacity due to high-sludge residue from the manufacturing process. To continue operations, additional retention ponds must be built or the sludge must be removed.
Geotube® engineered textiles are an economical solution to containment and dewatering these types of sludge. The dried residue can be burned or disposed of at a reduced cost. By eliminating the need for mechanical dewatering, the cost of the project may be reduced up to 40%.
- no permitting required
- efficient dewatering and volume reduction
- reduced disposal cost
- reduced fuel consumption
- reduced total overall operating cost
