Aqua/Agriculture

Geosynthetic products are common today in both agriculture and aquaculture applications. Geotextiles act as separators of materials, livestock, fish and other marine creatures. They also provide shelter from the elements, offer protection from dirt and debris, and control water and soil interaction.

Poorly designed animal waste lagoons currently contribute to the pollution of ground and surface waters. To control waste seepage, it is common to install materials such as exposed geomembranes, geomembranes with soil cover and geosynthetic clay liners with soil cover. In addition, geotextiles and geonet composites are used for protection and gas transmission.

Odor is also a problematic concern with some agricultural/horticultural operations. Odor control covers can be constructed of a low-cost geomembrane coated fabric or a more complex engineered floating cover system, depending on what is being contained. In addition, reinforced and non-reinforced geomembranes and geocomposites are also used extensively to control odors and greenhouse emissions.

In addition to controlling environmental contamination by providing a barrier, geosynthetics and geomembranes have been used for decades in preserving clean water for on-farm use.

No matter what your agricultural or aquacultural containment needs may be, Hallaton can provide and install the right geosynthetics to get the job done.
