TenCate Geosynthetic Solutions for Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR)

Recently published guidelines by the EPA will most likely result in the closure of many ash surface impoundments located at coal fired power plants. Stabilizing soft, saturated ash ponds often require the need for high strength, highly engineered woven geosynthetics. TenCate has been in the business of sludge pond closures for over 30 years. Contact us today for information that will allow you to safely, quickly and economically close your surface impoundments.

Dewatering Technology for Ash Pond Waste
Industrial byproducts, such as fly ash and bottom ash, can be a real challenge for both small and large facilities to remove and manage. With Geotube® dewatering technology, facilities can easily consolidate waste materials by using TenCate’s specially engineered fabrics that retain the solids while releasing the clear water through the fabric pores.
