Ideal for Swine, Dairy, Poultry, and Other Uses

TenCate Geotube® industrial fabrics deliver solutions for agriculture applications.  From our complete product line for the dewatering market, we offer materials that reduce the waste in lagoons and utilize the contained nutrients for crops. TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology reduces the lagoon size by 50%, reduces labor and energy for land application by 50-70%, stores contained nutrients until needed for crops, provides higher quality flush water, and reduces the odor and insect problems normally encountered.  Found on many hog and dairy farms, TenCate Geotube® containers dewater the liquid from the lagoon while trapping the solid particles.  After time, these solids dry in the TenCate Geotube® units, making the contained nutrients easier to transport and apply to crops.

TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology is an effective way for managing waste from Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO's).  It works for lagoon cleanout and closure, and manages nutrients very effectively (over 90% phosphorous and heavy metal removal; 50% or greater nitrogen reduction).  It also controls odor and produces irrigation quality effluent water.  Click here to learn more about TenCate Geotube® Nutrient Removal System technology.

TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology is designated as a Practice Standard (Federal Practice Number 632) by the USDA NRCS (Natural Resource Conservation Service).  As such it can qualify for up to 75% matching funds under the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). 

You can even set up a TenCate Geotube® dewatering system inline, so you prevent solids from entering a lagoon.  You store water for irrigation, not waste you have to deal with later.  The system doesn't interrupt other operations.
