GeoHay suggested for Gulf Coast cleanup

GeoHay is an environmentally friendly and green line of barrier filtration products which aid in the control of erosion and sediment. Our products are produced with 100% recycled carpet fibers and can be reused over and over again. GeoHay has been proven to be more efficient and more cost effective than silt fence or natural hay bales. Our products are produced in standard sizes, but can also be ordered to fit the specific needs of our customers. All GeoHay products come with precut stake holes for easy installation and are non-biodegradable.

GeoHay is currently being proposed as part of the remedy for the clean up in the Gulf. Please see the demostration of oil absorbtion in this video after the 1:45 mark.

Geomembrane liners:

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is typically a non-reinforced, cost effective membrane that provides many advantages for the user. For a non-reinforced material, PVC has high puncture strength and excellent abrasion resistance. In buried applications, PVC can provide a service life for over 20 years. In addition, PVC is resistant to a large number of industrial chemicals. PVC allows for an easy installation due to the availability of large factory fabricated panels and diverse field seaming capabilities which include chemical, hot wedge, and hot air processes. In addition to standard grade, PVC is available in oil resistant, UV resistant, fishgrade, reinforced, and potable water formulations.

Discover products ranging from geotechnical applications on land, in the water and underground to sources of manufacturers of geomembranes for landscaping, erosion control and groundwater.
