Energy & Mining
Worldwide, the demand for oil & gas production continues to grow along with the demand for raw materials that are derived from mining. As these demands grow, both energy production and mining companies are under increasing pressure to reduce environmental impacts, operate in remote areas and maintain maximum efficiency. Additionally, renewable energies such as wind and solar farms are becoming an integral factor in global infrastructure. Using geosynthetics in oil and gas, renewable energy, and mining site designs help to create facilities that are economically feasible and environmentally friendly. In these applications, geotextiles can reduce cost while increasing performance life of liner protection systems, support roads, tailing and storage tanks, and drainage and filtration systems. Additionally Engineered Earth Armoring Solutions can provide slope stabilization and erosion protection with a minimal carbon footprint.
