Safe, innovative and sustainable geosynthetic solutions for the mining industry: Advantages of the new PLUS products.

The use of geosynthetics in mining operations grows annually as mining companies focus on the technical and economic advantages of them. In this regard, Naue can

- support the economic extraction of valuable resources in heap leaching.
- offer engineering solutions for mine waste in tailing facilities.
- provide sealing, drainage, filtration or separation materials for all kinds of ponds or mine remediation of old operations.
- deliver reinforcement and stabilization products and systems for embankments, haul and access roads or steep slopes and walls.

This means that our polymeric materials enable more efficient barriers, stronger access roads, space-saving and safety-enhancing retaining structures and much more. But mining projects are often sensitive to the environment and are located in remote areas. Therefore, our geosynthetics can not only offer cost and time savings but also reduce the environmental impact (carbon footprint, energy consumption) on most projects involving geotechnical work compared to conventional methods.

You can use our geosynthetics individually or combined as an intelligent system solution. They are built to last for long-term usage when properly designed and installed. Naue can provide

-engineering, specification and design support.
- software tools.
- testing (e.g. shear box testing, leachate testing).
- training, supervision and/or installation.

Naue has more than 50 years of experience in development, production and installation of geosynthetics. We can be your single point of contact to find a proper solution for your geotechnical challenges in your mining projects.
