AquaBlok, Ltd. is a manufacturer of composite (clay-based) materials utilizing its patented coating and amendment approach. The company has a long history in the environmental industry and a range of products utilized in sediment remediation technologies. AquaBlok also can deliver a wide range of treatment materials to the sediment, including organoclay, activated carbon, zero valent iron, sulfur and other proprietary materials. AquaBlok also utilizes its delivery system in a range of other products including, pond and industrial impoundment sealing, as seep collars on piping, to construct cut-off walls in porous soil conditions, flood control applications (i.e. levee and dam protection), and to deliver organoclay-based materials. In addition, AquaBlok is a licensee of Halliburton`s Bariod Division for the Baraclear phosphorus control product.

- Year Founded:
AquaBlok, Ltd. was founded in Toledo, Ohio in the late-1990s to address technical challenges associated with aqueous “capping,” or the physical isolation of contaminated sediment from relatively “clean” water in aquatic environments. Our team consists of engineers and scientists who derive satisfaction from helping address recurring and often complex civil engineering and remedial challenges to save time, money, and resources – ultimately to improve the quality of life.
AquaBlok continues to be an independent private company. While we maintain close relationships with a wide range of technology vendors and consultants, AquaBlok is not owned or controlled by any outside entity.
While the uses of the foundational technology and its “composite particle” design can be highly technical, the basic concept is elegantly simple: AquaBlok delivers fine-grained powders (typically clays, modified minerals, and engineered active amendments) into or around water by wrapping these traditionally hard-to-handle materials around a stone aggregate core. This process results in a finished “composite particle” ideal to perform advantageous geotechnical functions – while also providing the ability to uniformly deliver value-added amendments at a wide range of concentrations.
