Question: How does BTL demonstrate its commitment to a clean environment?
Answer: Thank you for your question! BTL Liners produces a variety of products that are intended to mitigate environmental issues, to protect the environment, and in some cases to improve the environment.
- Containment booms are temporary floating barriers used in the event of oil or fuel spills to deter contaminants from spreading into sensitive waterways such as lakes, rivers or the ocean. Containment booms protect shorelines and wildlife, and concentrate spills into thicker layers to aid vacuum or skimmer collection. Booms are often the first containment method to be used, and are the most environmentally acceptable response technique for cleaning up oil spills in the U.S.
- Custom fabricated pit and pad liners, tank liners, as well as liners for backup containment systems are vital for safe storage of contaminated soil or water to ensure that the surrounding environment is protected from leaks. Whether a business needs containment for contaminated stormwater, wastewater, or even flowback from a hydraulic fracturing operation, BTL Liners guarantees containment.
- BTL Liner’s LEED* certified green geotextiles are made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, and can be used for credits toward obtaining LEED certification for your building project. Used for landscaping, rain gardens, or other innovative purposes, each truckload of geotextile keeps 300,000 bottles from entering landfills!
- BTL Liners is proud to work with various sustainable projects, including businesses such as fish farms, algae harvesting as an alternative fuel source, and even individual homeowners who want to conserve water by creating wicking beds for raised planters. We are committed to doing our part to keep our environment safe and beautiful.
* Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, is a building certification program developed to enhance environmental awareness among builders and architects and to encourage the design and construction of buildings using sustainable materials that are both energy efficient and water-conserving.
