HELPING OUR CUSTOMERS ENGINEER THE ENVIRONMENT

TAKING OUR RESPONSIBILITY SERIOUSLY

Cleaner air and water, more sustainable construction and greener solutions for a better world

Reducing pollution

Our products are invaluable in meeting the demands for cleaner industrial and automotive air to combat pollution.

Water stress

In green roofs we control storm water discharge. Through drainage we stabilise soil, aid construction and improve irrigation.

Climate change effects

Our synthetic fibres and geosynthetics help protect people and property from rising seas and extreme weather events.

Reduced emissions

Our materials boost sustainability, lower emissions and improve carbon footprint. Their lightness cuts deliveries, and their use reduces the need for quarrying and material disposal.

ENVIRONMENTAL APPLICATIONS

From the tiniest pleats in a gas filter to the massive foundations of a wind turbine. The achievement is in the detail.

Air and water treatment

Air and water treatment

The unique Enkamat structure, with its 95% open spacing and high surface to volume ratio, is key in creating bio-filters able to tackle the industrial cleaning of air and water. Its excellent flow and surface area, and resistance to corrosion help odour control systems cope with complex sulphur, chlorine and volatile organic compounds.

Air filtration

Air filtration

As support media, Colback fabrics can deliver the superior, sharper pleat structure required in pleated gas turbine filter systems, promoting low pressure drop and longer filter life.

Biogas storage

Biogas storage

Technical coated fabrics offer high impermeability to gas making them ideal as a membrane to seal containers and prevent escaping odours, and as safe Biogas storage for agricultural waste.

Flooring

Flooring

Our synthetic fibres can strengthen the internal and external concrete floors in recycling plants, and reinforce the foundation floors of wind turbines – a greener alternative to steel mesh.

Green roof components

Green roof components

Green roofs have many environmental benefits from cleaner air, biodiversity and storm water control to reducing the "heat island effect" that ups city temperatures. Enkadrain components play a key part.

Green roof systems

Green roof systems

Green roofs are natural, increase diversity, and bring a wealth of environmental benefits. Xeroflor green roofs are fast and easy to install, more reliable and more durable.

Groundwork construction

Groundwork construction

Our synthetic fibres strengthen the concrete foundations needed to support heavy windfarm equipment during building and maintenance, while our geotextiles reinforce weak subsoils around the foundation platform.

VISIT ENKA SOLUTIONS

Precast concrete

Precast concrete

Our synthetic fibres prevent cracks forming in pre-cast concrete, helping it resist the damage caused by water penetrating the surface - invaluable for projects such as water basins in water purification plants.

Solar protection

Solar protection

Sun sails are a versatile, mobile answer to sun protection. Our technical coated fabrics easily handle the stresses they encounter, are impervious to UV, and empower new design possibilities.

How to turn a process obstacle into a product opportunity

A customer said our our proprietary nonwoven fabric was best for their filters, but its seams may affect their new production lines. We found a bonding process that eliminated the seams, and so suits their production. The solution offers expansion opportunities for both our customer and for us.
