Problems with liquid waste. The disposal of liquid waste materials is expensive, difficult to transport and can lead to further contamination.

Maccaferri geotextiles make disposal easier and more cost-effective

Removing the water component from the liquid waste reduces the volume of the waste. MacTube® and MacBag® geotextile tubes and bags are used for dewatering industrial slurries, mine tailings, sludge ponds or other slurried materials. MacTube® is made from a specially designed geotextile composite. Slurried material is pumped into the tube or bag and the geotextile retains solid particles within it, whilst the filtrate fluids are released through the fabric.
