Coastal erosion is the wearing away of land or the removal of beach or dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents, wave currents, or drainage. Removing sand and other materials from beaches and dunes due to tidal storm surges and construction purposes causes massive beach erosion damages and land loss of seashores, thus destroying the natural heritage of the coast and reducing the vibrancy of the tourism industry. Uprooting vegetation from coastal areas destabilises beaches and clearing sites inland results in increased soil and dirt particles being washed offshore and smothering coral reef systems.

In ongoing operation, the substances suspended in the boiler water are concentrated. In order to avoid the negative consequences (foaming, deposits) of excessive salt content in the boiler water, specified limit values must not be exceeded. With the aid of a desalination control valve, boiler water with concentrated content is constantly removed and replaced with clean water. If the limit values are exceeded, the conductivity limitation ensures prompt switching off of the burner(s). Foreign substances that have sunk to the bottom of the boiler are removed by briefly opening a drainage valve.

The GEOWEB system offers design flexibility for unpaved roadway surfaces, base stabilization, road shoulders as well as erosion protection of embankments and stormwater drainage channels. The 3D GEOWEB structure offers strength improvements to the road base layer for asphaltic and concrete pavements far greater than delivered by geogrids. A single GEOWEB layer performs well over soft subgrades - while geogrids require 2-3 layers for the same benefit - saving cost and construction time. Unpaved roads built with the GEOWEB system are permeable, and require 50% less infill. Roadway slope and channel designs include vegetation, aggregate or concrete protection.

Water is irreplaceable for life and for a great many businesses. It is a guarantee of survival and a scarce resource. Today`s society demands increasingly large volumes of increasingly high-quality water. TenCate Geosyntehtics has had a constant hand in the creation of water management infrastructure. In the last 20 years it has built more than 30 dams of a wide range of types and has used for that purpose the most modern of construction systems. TenCate filtration systems offer optimized hydraulic properties with high compression strength. Sensitive hydraulic structures - dams, dykes, canals, reservoirs - require perfect water control. Whether used to protect banks, around a drainage structure or against clay sealing cores, TenCate filtration geosynthetics achieve this level of requirement.

In the manufacturing of pulp, the raw material for paper, problems such as the piercing and ripping of paper occur due to calcium carbonate and other scales and pitch deposits (adhesives contained in wood and old paper). To prevent these problems, Kurita Water Industries offers a range of water treatment chemicals such as anti-scale agents and pitch control agents. For the paper-forming process that produces paper from pulp, we offer water treatment chemicals such as slime control agents that help improve the paper quality by removing the bacteria and fungi in the water that dissolved pulp. We also provide yield and drainage improvers that help improve production efficiency by making drainage better.

In urban areas can geotextiles be found in most diverse applications. The geotextiles are being used in access and paved roads, sport fields, riverbed protection, drainage trenches and pond liner protection. The geotextiles are also being used in vertical drainage applications. Groundwater and excess rainwater can be controlled well when geotextiles are properly used. More and more floods cause serious damage to urban areas.
