Applications for Geosynthetic Bags

Dewatering of Sludge and Sediments

For sectors that produce sludge and sediments, geosynthetic solutions like Geotube® allow the recuperation of  valuable materials and separation of suspended solids. Geotubes® are perfect complements to dredging projects in tailings ponds and other water streams, and in other areas where large amounts of water with a high concentration of suspended solids are generated.

Construction of Dams, Berms and Dykes

On mining sites, geosynthetic bags are an interesting solution for water management from tailings facilities. When combined with dredging, this solution can double the benefits for users. Extracting sediments generates new pond capacity while, in parallel, the sediments collected  in the geosynthetic bags can be reused for building dams, berms or dykes. Accordingly, levels of existing facilities are raised and the pond volumes increased. 

Marine Structures and Shore Protection
Protection côtière Geotube

Geosynthetic bags can be used as a variety of underwater structures to protect shores, from marine erosion and natural disasters. For over 70 years, they have been a trusted solution as liners, jetties, dykes and breakwater installations. Geotubes® have proven their performance and efficiency, especially when they provided ultimate protection against the full force of Sandy’s Hurricane, leaving the areas protected by geosynthetic bags virtually undamaged.

Turnkey Sludge Treatment Solutions with Utmost Cost Certainty

ASDR leverages its in-depth know-how and a variety of dredges, along with water and sludge treatment technologies, in order to deliver tailored solutions. We can therefore adapt to each project’s unique context and challenges. This allows us to dredge large volumes of water with utmost accuracy and cost certainty.
