Landfill Construction

Tektoseal Sand is a three-layer geo-composite with encapsulated quartz sand that can be used as a combined protective layer system for the bottom linings of landfill sites. Combining non-wovens certified by BAM (German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing) and a centrally arranged sand content. Tektoseal Sand offers proven long-term protection for polymer liners in a landfill environment. In addition to its excellent protective performance, this hybrid solution exhibits outstanding frictional properties in slope areas and can offer cost effective installation.

SoilTain Protect

SoilTain Protect is an innovative geotextile containment system manufactured utilizing state-of-the-art weaving technology, which provides a tubular system interconnected into a singular geosynthetic mattress configuration. SoilTain Protect should be utilized wherever it is required to avoid solar and UV exposure on geomembranes.
This HUESKER solution reduces construction time, construction and operational risk, construction and operational cost and contributes to the economic, environmental and social sustainability of containment operations.

Unique benefits of SoilTain Protect:

  • Eliminates heavy construction equipment on top of primary geomembranes
  • Eliminates greatest threat to liner integrity
  • Enhances site safety significantly through reduction of construction traffic
  • Increases storage space due to using waste (e.g. tailings, coal ash) inside the protection tubes
  • Protects your environmental investment safely and efficiently

The steadily growing requirements placed on contaminated site remediation and groundwater protection are fueling the demand for new products and engineering solutions to support eco-friendly design and construction. Drawing on its global network, HUESKER has expended considerable resources in recent years on research into special Active Geo-Composites and the development of the Tektoseal Active product family.

Groundwater Protection

Tektoseal Active serves to prevent groundwater contamination wherever there is a risk of oil, petrol or other pollutants infiltrating into unsealed areas.
The Geo-Composite binds the contaminants while remaining permeable to rainwater. It can, for example, be used in track beds, as a base for temporary filling stations and parking areas, and for emergency clean-ups after accidents.
Tektoseal Active can also be deployed in water as an absorbent protective barrier. In emergencies, for instance, Tektoseal Active AS allows the rapid installation of an oil absorbing curtain in water or an oil barrier on the water surface. The Geo-Composite can be designed to float or sink per project specific requirements.
