Gulf Coast Chemical Plant


Product:         Geotube® Dewatering Technology

Application:   Light Industrial

Location:       Texas Gulf Coast


The Challenge:

At the site of a chemical plant, a tank containing hazardous waste had to be cleaned and its solids dewatered and hauled off site every 90 days.  Previous efforts using belt presses were too costly and time consuming.

The Solution:

Geotube® units were placed in multiple roll-off boxes [photo 2] to provide containment, dewatering, and easy transportation of the hazardous waste.  The units were also manifolded together for greater efficiency [photo 3].

The Results:

The first cleanup project was completed in five days; and the second project wrapped up in only three days.  The chemical plant yielded a total savings of $60,000 per project.
