About Compost Filter Socks & Erosion Control

For more than 20 years, compost filter socks have been a sustainable BMP for sediment control versus other products such as silt fences and straw wattles. This is mainly due to the material that is 95% of the product's weight and made of a natural compost filter with another 5% made up of an outer mesh material. The outer mesh of this product is made of polypropylene because of its resistance to UV and its tensile strength.

Over the past 10 years, sustainable properties have become a top priority for federal and state regulatory agencies, there has been a higher demand for natural and 100% biodegradable BMPs than ever before. In the past decade, there are many state and federal agencies that are leaning toward biodegradable products and eliminating plastics from their approval lists.

What Are Natural and Biodegradable BMPs?

There are many environmental benefits to using biodegradable materials for erosion and sediment control, including the following:

  • An increase in using natural renewable resources.
  • There is less use for non-renewable petroleum-based products.
  • Fewer microplastics and materials are ending up in landfills.
  • There is greater compatibility with permanent natural landscapes.

There are much lower labor costs when removing and disposing of biodegradable products when the project ends. If a project uses a 100% biodegradable compost filter sock, it can be left there to biodegrade on its own.

Most natural products that are on the market include burlap, jute, and coir. Unfortunately, many of these materials are imported which means sustainability benefits are decreased due to high emission issues.

Also, there are problems with quality control and supply chains where these products will not qualify for certain projects requiring products made in the USA.

So, how do you find the best biodegradable material for your job?

In 2022, Filtrexx International brought in cotton filter mesh material for their filter socks. Even though cotton worked well, over the past few years there has been a demand for materials that offer more long-term benefits like traditional plastic. In turn, research and testing of different natural materials including cotton fiber, wood fiber, flax fiber, and PLA are still in the works.

Testing was performed at three field research stations with a range of environmental conditions including moisture, UV, and temperature. When research was completed, the wood fiber showed a greater lifespan and tensile strength in comparison to cotton fiber. It met all the requirements for a durable biodegradable mesh material. The wood fiber met industry needs for biodegradable, natural, renewable sustainable material.

In 2020, Filtrexx revealed wood fiber mesh to the marketplace under the name “SiltSoxx Natural PLUS+”. As an alternative to cotton fiber mesh material it was named “ SiltSoxx Natural Original”.

For the future of biodegradable BMPs, SiltSoxx Natural PLUS+ can be used in most applications for sediment control including - perimeter control, slope interruption, inlet protection, as well as ditches and channels. It only makes common sense to use SiltSoxx Natural PLUS+. It's used on clean energy construction sites such as solar and wind for higher sustainability.

Filtrexx continues to research and look for other ways for more sustainable materials for our use. Sustainability is no longer just a passing fancy, it's become a way of life.

As we discover more about sustainability, Filtrexx will continue to research biodegradable materials in order to protect our natural resources and learn even more about the products being used. Filtrexx will continue to research and keep learning new avenues regarding biodegradable materials to protect our planet and our natural resources.

Erosion Control Is Always Needed

Erosion control has always been a concern to Matt Kearns and his father's family business. This business was started in the 1980s focusing on lawns, golf courses, and sports fields. Matt and his brother worked with their father in the family business. When Matt joined the military, his brother continued working with their dad. In 2016, Mat returned home and he and his brother, Chad, wanted to start their own business focusing on erosion control.

They decided to start their own erosion control for construction as they already had the equipment given to them by their father. That's when Grassroots Erosion Control, Inc started.

In 2017, California experienced a number of wildfires covering more than 245,000 acres and destroying almost 9,000 buildings. A debris removal company came in and got in touch with Grassroots for help with post-fire solutions. At that time, Matt and Chad were only able to provide erosion control for 170 lots as Grassroots was totally a hydro-mulching business.

In July 2018, another debris removal company came in and contacted Grassroots for help with post-fire solutions to help with the Carr Fire that burned almost 230,000 acres and destroyed more than 1,6000 buildings in Whiskeytown Shasta-Trinity National Recreation Area.

Grassroots helped with 800 sites by using hydro-mulch and straw wattles.

2018, when Camp Fire hit Matt was aware they would need to hire more people and what they really wanted were locals to give back to the community because many of these people lost their homes and work. They reached out to Workforce Connection to get people in the community who lost everything. They hired a crew that knew little to nothing about installing erosion control products so they realized they would have to start a workshop to educate everyone.

Matt met with Bryan Hofmann, a Filtrexx sales representative, to discuss what they had to do for a workshop. In the past, Matt had attended an erosion control workshop with David Franklin, a consultant with Envirotech NPDES Services.

Matt had attended two of David's workshops and said he was a great teacher. Bryan had brought together over 100 participants for the workshop in Paradise, California. The workshop included erosion control companies, consultants, and government agencies. It was a great success.

The people who attended the workshop really liked it, and those that didn't really missed out. When Matt and his team are not working on post-fire remediation, they are working on Caltrans projects. Grassroots working toward being a leader in the erosion control field.

In Conclusion

Erosion caused by water and wind will not end anytime soon. The more that can be learned with erosion control, the better off our planet and life on this planet will be. More companies have been formed to fight erosion by understanding how detrimental it is to life on Earth. Many federal and local organizations are getting involved and demanding the best options for controlling the damage caused by wind and water. Both wind and water are natural elements, they cannot be held accountable for their actions but as people, we can control the damage and turn things around.
