TenCate Solutions in the Environment Around Us

Bird Geotube Image Component    


TenCate GeoTube® containment technology protects against storm damage and beach erosion.  It is currently being employed to protect environmentally sensitive areas where     preservation and restoration of wetlands is a high priority. Developed using input from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, these cost effective containers can be submerged along     beachfronts to prevent erosion or offshore in areas where wave action is causing damage. 

Geotube Remediation Image Component


TenCate's fabric is a proven solution for remediating hazardous sites. Our Geotube technology filters and contains contaminants from environmental clean up. Using our advanced     filtration capabilities, we can safely remove sediment, sludge and construction byproduct. Our Geotubes are currently being utilized by the Brazilian Government for remediation     projects in advance of the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics.
