Sludge Dewatering

Geobags are made of high strength, permeable geotextile materials that allow water to pass through while retaining the solid particles inside. The process is commonly used in various industries, including wastewater treatment, mining, and dredging, for efficient and cost effective sludge management.

Benefits of Geobag Sludge Dewatering
  • Cost-Effective: Reduces transportation and disposal costs by significantly reducing sludge volume.
  • Efficient: Can handle large volumes of sludge, making it suitable for various industrial applications.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Minimizes the environmental impact by reducing the amount of waste requiring disposal.
  • Flexible: Can be used in remote or challenging locations where traditional dewatering methods may not be feasible.

Municipal Waste

Geobag dewatering of municipal waste sludge was a early and mature application. Most municipal sewage treatment plants store the generated sludge in ponds. Over time, there ponds are filled with sludge and needs clearn. Geobags are used extensively for dewatering sludge from these containment ponds. The effluent water is normally back to the ponds, and solids disposed of elsewhere.

For the limited space available, many customers use small size geobags technology, which can put into ‘rectangle steel box’ and can be easy moved by truck. It is also called MDS dewatering system.

Mining Waste

The mining of minerals will produce various types of waste. Such as tailings, mineral fines and processing sludge.

Large mining activities produce big amounts of tailings, which are stored in open tailings dams in isolated locations. However, small mines produce small tailings, which are close to population or environmentally sensitive areas.

The management of these tailings or their remediation are necessary, because in many cases the tailings have to be dewatered first before they can be rendered stable and inert. Geobag dewatering technology is implemented for this application.

Contaminated Sediments

The contaminated sediments are always come from industrial effluent waste that settle into rivers, lakes, ponds and streams within timeby. They are such as: PCBs, PCPs, PAHs, lead, copper, zinc, arsenic and etc. These contaminants are harmful to humans, animals and aquatic lifes.

Environmental dredging is the most common method of contaminated sediment remediation. The sediment is dredged and pumped(add coagulate/flocculate is recommended) into geobag dewatering bags and transported after weeks or months consolidation.

Industrial Waste

Many industrial processes produce waste which is stored in waste ponds on the industrial site. Over time these ponds fill with waste sludge, and have to be cleaned to continue function.

A common method of these waste reclamation is geobag  dewatering tube pump the waste sludge from ponds and dispose of it in landfill or use it for other applications after dewatering and consolidation.

Agricultural dewatering

Agricultural Animal Waste

Chicken, Cattle and Pig farms produce large amount of waste, which is commonly stored in retention ponds. Over time there ponds are filled with sludge, and they have to be cleaned out periodically.

Animal waste is more fine than sewage waste, it normally has to be treated with coagulate and flocculate to ensure colloids and nutrients are contained within the geotextile dewatering bag during geobag dewatering technology.

Food Processing Slurry

Food processing produces large quantities of slurry waste, which comes from manufacturing process such as Potato Processing(washing and skin waste), Cheese Processing, Wine Processing and etc.

Slurry waste stored in sedimentation pond and need to be geobag sludge dewatering periodically.
