Who We Are

We are the inventors of the compost filter sock. After years of research and development, Filtrexx Soxx™ technology has expanded into stormwater management, sediment control, erosion control, pollutant removal and living walls. Our sustainable solutions, built around our proprietary Soxx™ technology, are used in diverse applications such as perimeter control, inlet protection, check dams, slope interruption, runoff diversion, sediment trap, channel protection, bank stabilization, living walls, green roofs, filtrations systems, and more. Headquartered in Akron, OH, Filtrexx has an extensive network of partners and distributors to serve customers across the globe.

What We Do

We provide design and engineering advice to utilize our patented Soxx technology. Engineered as the superior alternative to silt fence, our original Filtrexx SiltSoxx™ is the tubular mesh device used to contain composted media for a variety of erosion control and stormwater management applications. Since 2001, our Soxx portfolio has grown exponentially to cover other sediment & erosion control, pollutant removal, stormwater management, stabilization, living walls and gardening applications.

How We Do It

We collaborate closely with our customers to identify the most appropriate Soxx technology for each specific application.
