Secondary containment prevents hazardous liquids from polluting soil and water. Secondary containment provides a double enclosure to reinforce storage systems, holding materials that are toxic, flammable, reactive, combustible or corrosive.
BTL’s green, LEED liners and geomembrane containment systems support a variety of secondary containment applications. Minimize the potential danger of hazardous liquid leaks with high-strength RPE and RPP liners, covers and containment systems. For the ultimate in containment and protection, choose a flame-resistant liner.

Oil, Gas and Mining
BTL’s specialty geosynthetics align perfectly with the requirements of the oil, gas and mining industries. In order to protect the environment and preserve your product during transportation and storage, secondary containment plays a large role. BTL provides liners for the oil and gas industries nationwide with liners for oil and gas frac pits, drilling site pit and pad liners, fire retention ponds, oil field containment, aboveground containment and mining containment systems.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that facilities storing large quantities of petroleum products must have a plan in plan in place in the event of a spill. In addition to the oil, gas and mining industries, secondary containment should be used in other applications when oil and other toxic or flammable materials are involved. An oil-filled transformer in the electrical utility industry often requires secondary containment to contain a spill. Containment using geomembrane liners offers a cost-effective option for cleanup in the case of a spill or leak.
Portable spill containment systems act as basins to catch different types of hazardous chemicals and liquids. This type of containment can be used to capture contaminated water in different applications, such as the spraying of pesticides.
