Sludge Dewatering

Commercial Marine Dredges are used to hydraulically fill Caribbean GeoTextiles' geotextile tubes and bags with the sludge or spoils. Dewatered sludge using geotextile tubes is a process commonly found in industrial, municipal, agricultural and hazardous waste applications throughout the Caribbean and Bahamas for Hurricane Storm Protection.

Because the woven fabric of the geotextile tube is porous, the excess water slowly drains from the tube on its own, effectively and inexpensively dewatering the sludge. When the tubes are injected with certain polymers, the solids then begin to coagulate, forcing the water to release. As the excess water is forced from the sludge, the entire volume is reduces, which allows the tubes to be over and over again. When the tubes have filled to capacity, the tube will continue to dewater. Once dewatered, the tube can be cut open and the dewatered sludge can be transported to a landfill or used to create new land.
