Geomembrane liners are the most widely used products for the oil, gas, and mining industries thanks to their low permeability and high endurance. Green liners and geomembrane containment systems support a variety of containment applications, from preventing water loss to preventing pollution.
Geomembrane Liners Prevent Water Loss
Water loss is a critical issue for mining operations. That’s because water is utilized throughout the mining process. From cooling equipment to separating waste from valuable minerals and even controlling dust. Water is typically recirculated again and again to minimize its discharge and consumption.
However, the concentration of contaminants increases each time water is reused, which is why containment is so important. The excessive use of water in mining operations can lead to over-consumption of local resources, then stressing water supplies. If strict safety and containment measures aren’t taken, mining waste can contaminate local water supplies. Which would threaten ecosystems as well as drinking water. Many mines across the world lose over 500 gallons of water per second, making concerns about water usage and contamination urgent.
BTL Liners fabricates geomembrane liners for the mining industry. Geomembranes are created from durable, continuous polymeric sheets, ensuring that miners can safely reuse their water without having to take excessive amounts of water from local sources.
Pollution Protection with Secondary Containment
The United States Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, requires all facilities storing large quantities of petroleum products to have a plan in place for the potential event of a spill. Secondary containment should always be used in applications where oil and other toxic, flammable materials are utilized. Containment using geomembrane liners offers a cost-effective option for cleanup in case of a leak or spill. Secondary containment helps prevent hazardous liquids from the oil, gas, and mining industries from polluting soil and water. Secondary containment also provides a double enclosure to reinforce storage systems. It also holds materials that are flammable, reactive, toxic, combustible or corrosive.
Using secondary containment has a plethora of benefits, from lowering insurance premiums to reducing liability risks. Secondary containment with geomembrane liners can help oil, gas, and mining businesses lower overhead costs, increase safety, and manage potential facility and environmental damage.
Secondary containment plays an essential role in protecting the environment and preserving your product during storage and transportation. BTL Liners provides geomembrane systems for the oil and gas industries nationwide with liners for oil and gas frac pits, fire retention ponds, drilling site pit and pad liners, oil field containment, above ground containment, and mining containment systems.
