• How to access specifications of these practices for your projects
SEDIMENT CONTROL - WEBINAR VIDEO
This one-hour webinar demonstrates how compost-based Best Management Practices (BMPs) can dramatically reduce sediment and targeted pollutants from stormwater with Filtrexx EnviroSoxx®. EnviroSoxx consist of sediment control devices with one or more natural additives used to remove invisible pollutants.
Learn how EnviroSoxx can:
- Remove up to 99% of coliform bacteria with BactoLoxx®
- Remove up to 73% of heavy metals with MetalLoxx®
- Remove up to 92% of nutrients with NutriLoxx®
- Remove up to 99% of hydrocarbons (diesel, gasoline, and motor oil) with PetroLoxx®
POLLUTANT REMOVAL - WEBINAR VIDEO
LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT
Are you concerned with the restoration and protection of vital water ways? Do you want to help reduce pollution in your local watershed? Help is at hand! Attend this FREE information-packed webinar on post-construction water quality treatment. Learn about the latest research and how to design and implement our Treatment Train™ products to reduce urban and post-construction storm water pollutants.
See how to:
- Reduce turbidity and TSS
- Naturally absorb hydrocarbons from urban runoff
- Remove harmful bacteria from combined sewers, pet parks, and agriculture
- Reduce phosphorus and nitrogen
- Filter particulate and soluble heavy metals
LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT - WEBINAR VIDEO
Attend this one-hour webinar to learn the basics of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating and Certification program and how Filtrexx products are being used to maximize credit accrual. This webinar will focus on the basics of the LEED program, and how and where compost Best Management Practices (BMPs) fit into the LEED rating systems.
- What green building and LEED is all about
- Which credit categories compost-BMPs fit within and how they can lead to point accrual
- About a LEED Platinum project that utilized compost-BMPs
LEED/GREEN BUILDING - WEBINAR VIDEO
LIVING SHORELINE RESTORATION SYSTEMS
In this one hour webinar, learn about emerging Living Shoreline
restoration applications that mimic nature, utilizing locally available,
sustainable materials. Living Shorelines systems are alternative
shoreline stabilization techniques that help maintain the natural
interface between land and water while preserving the habitat,
protecting the environment and enhancing coastal resilience to reduce
Join us to learn more about the following systems/applications:
- Beaches: Prevent dune scarps and enhance new beach dune establishment
- Lakes & Ponds: Long-term protection against the elements with native vegetation
- Rivers & Streams: Maintain native vegetation and reduce erosion impact
LIVING SHORELINES - WEBINAR VIDEO
Why manage grade changes with non-sustainable methods when retaining living walls can accomplish the same task with environmental benefits? Much the same as green roofs, rain gardens and bioswales, living retaining walls minimize stormwater runoff, cool the environment, and provide habitat for native creatures. Living walls also contribute to the LEED points of a project in several categories.
Filtrexx® LivingWalls™ division combines innovative engineering from living walls applications with Filtrexx Bank Stabilization technology. We offer a wide range of MSE and non-MSE solutions for walls and slopes from 80 to 45 degrees of inclination, with varying degrees of design flexibility and planting options. We guarantee the beauty, strength and sustainability of our LivingWall systems.
Filtrexx LivingWalls Advantage:
