Floc Mats offer a fully biodegradable water treatment and silt capture solution for cleaning muddy water and preventing silt pollution.
Our unique and environmental-friendly Floc Mats™ provide a safe, cheap and easy solution to support the removal of pollutants from the water.
Placed in ditches and channels, as water moves over and through the biodegradable mat fibres they capture and trap silt, clay and other fine sediment naturally. It provides a low carbon, cost effective way of treating water without the need for pumps, saving energy and CO2.
Floc Mat comes in untreated or treated forms, with treated versions having a highly effective, non-toxic gel flocculant impregnated into the natural fibres to aid their silt binding performance.
They are commonly used for:
- Construction & infrastructure site ditches and channels with low flow
