Structural Solutions

Envirotubes geocontainment technology is used as an integral component in the design and construction of a variety of marine and hydraulic engineering structures such as breakwaters, levies, and marine spoil-containment structures.  Once in place, our technology provides years of continued performance.


For more than 30 years, Envirotubes technology has protected shorelines, rebuilt beaches, and reclaimed land from the sea.  Envirotubes technology is a proven, cost-effective method for a variety of shoreline protection and marine construction projects. Envirotubes has been used to produce sand dune cores; wetlands and other habitats; jetties, dikes, and groynes; and underwater structures.


Developed using input from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Envirotubes technology is cost-effective, durable, easy to install, and highly flexible.  It's been proven in applications around the world. Better yet, Envirotubes technology has literally saved millions of dollars in valuable property for companies and individuals. 


Quick Links
