Erosion and Sediment Flow
A major environmental challenge that demands urgent action
Erosion and sediment flow are two processes that have a significant impact on our environment. Erosion is the process of soil or rock being carried away by natural forces such as wind or water. On the other hand, sedimentation is when these transported particles settle and accumulate in a new location.
Soil erosion can have a drastic impact on plant growth and agriculture as it can cause loss of fertile topsoil. It can also change the course of water flow, leading to increased water runoff. When sediment accumulates in rivers and streams, it can have a severe impact on aquatic ecosystems. Sedimentation in drains and waterways can cause sediment clogging. This reduces the drainage efficiency and water quality. In addition, erosion and sediment dispersion contribute to climate change by releasing stored carbon into the atmosphere, which as we all know is not good news.
To tackle these issues, we need to employ effective management strategies such as using sediment fences. These measures are crucial to preserving Australia's natural resources, protecting our ecosystems, and supporting sustainable development. By taking action now, we can ensure that our environment remains healthy and sustainable for future generations.
Why HEIGER Products?
The one-stop solution to all your erosion and sediment control needs
At HEIGER, we offer innovative solutions that are engineered to last 2X longer than average erosion control products. Our high-quality sediment barriers are made from 100% natural coconut fiber, sustainably sourced from Sri Lanka, which is known for its top-quality coir. We take pride in using 100% natural coconut fiber that is biodegradable, compostable, and environmentally friendly.
Compared to other coir products in the market, HEIGER products offer supreme value as they are specifically engineered to be durable by harnessing coconut coir’s slow degradation rate and higher tensile strength. This means they can last up to 5 years, allowing natural vegetation to establish. But that’s not all - our Coir Logs, Geotextile Rolls (Coir Mesh Rolls), Geotextile Bales (Coir Mesh Bales), and Coir Blankets are resistant to rot and UV degradation.
Keeping Carbon Footprint at a Minimum!
Did you know that soil erosion is a major environmental concern in Australia?
The harmful effects of soil erosion and sediment flow on the economy, society, and environment cannot be overstated. Hence, it's vital to sustainably manage and control them to safeguard our natural resources and the planet. Our sediment barriers can help prevent the loss of topsoil, degradation of water quality, and are ideally suited for Australian terrain. We're committed to a zero-carbon cause and use a minimal processing approach in our manufacturing process, avoiding any harmful chemicals. Our coir products are environmentally friendly and biodegradable, leaving no harmful residues as they decompose, making them an ideal choice for promoting sustainability.
