ISO 14001:2015

Sioen is ISO 14001 certified, which means that we’ve implemented an environmental management system (EMS).

Waste water

We're tightly managing our waste water. With the exception of sanitary water, we aim for a zero discharge status. Our online coating plant in Ardooie and our chemicals production plant in Bornem have already achieved this goal.

Textiles for large scale sanitation

At the Sioen group, we produce all types of technical fabrics from wovens, scrims, geomembranes, films, sheets to coated textiles for large scale industrial sanitation. They protect against leakages of all types of spills.

Textiles for waste management

We produce coated textiles and geotextiles for all types of waste management to protect groundwater and surface water a.o. Our range consists of bottom liners, cover systems, side slope lining, liquid collection systems, cut-off wall systems.

Tap water systems

We have installed Aqualex machines, tap water systems at our HQ. Tap water isn’t only the healthiest drink, but it is also the most environmentally friendly, as bottled water or drinks in other small containers are 10.000 times worse.

Water bags

We manufacture technical textiles that can be used to manufacture dewatering bags. These bags can be used in flooding areas. The sludge runs into the bag or is pumped into it. The water flows out of the bag and the sludge remains in it.

Pond liners

We produce liners that are used in pond landscaping and to construct water bassins that enhance the character of parks and other recreational areas.

Geotextiles for water bassins, dams and canals

We produce geotextiles that are used in coastal and river erosion protection to construct large water basins, dams and canals among others. Geotextiles have the ability to separate, filter, protect, or drain and are indispensable in any construction.

Fabrics for sewer renovation

We produce nonwovens and scrims that are used for CIPP in sewer renovation. CIPP stands for Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) in pipeline repair. The principle consists of inserting a felt lining into a pre-existing pipe that is the subject of repair.

Fabrics for reef protection

There's care needed to preserve and protect coral reefs during dredging activities. We produce fabrics that are used to protect the reef from mud and blown sand. The first type of fabric serves as a curtain, the latter keeps these curtains affloat.

Textiles for desludging and dewatering

We produce coated textiles and geotextiles for removing fine sediments from sites and for dewatering of waste water and sludge water. Our range includes wovens, scrims, nonwovens, films, sheets and coated textiles for industrial sanitation.
