Rising sea levels and climate change pose a significant threat to coastal ecosystems, particularly wetlands. These crucial natural assets act as vital filters, breeding grounds for marine life, and buffers against storm surges. Traditionally, coastal erosion control methods like seawalls disrupt the natural migration of wetlands, hindering their ability to adapt to changing environments.

Our Solutions

Belton Industries offers a comprehensive line of geotextile erosion control products designed to work harmoniously with nature. Our solutions address the dual challenges of preserving existing wetlands and facilitating their migration inland.

  • Biodegradable Geotextiles: Our jute and coir-based products control temporary erosion while promoting natural vegetation growth. This allows wetlands to establish themselves in new areas without the long-term presence of synthetic materials.

  • Long-Lasting Polypropylene Solutions: Our durable polypropylene geotextiles offer superior erosion control where permanent stabilization is necessary. These solutions are ideal for protecting newly established wetlands or shorelines.

  • Water Filtration and Sediment Control: Belton’s geotextiles effectively filter stormwater runoff, preventing harmful contaminants and sediment from entering fragile wetland ecosystems. This promotes healthy water quality, which is vital for plant and animal life.

Wetland Migration Management

As sea levels rise, coastal wetlands will naturally migrate inland. Belton Industries works with coastal communities and conservation groups to develop sustainable strategies for this process. Our geotextiles can be used to:

  • create buffers between migrating wetlands and existing development, minimizing disruption.

  • stabilize newly exposed shorelines, allowing wetlands to establish themselves in new locations.

  • prevent erosion during the migration process, ensuring the continued health of these critical ecosystems.
