The complete erosion control, sediment control, and water clarification solution
When it comes to erosion and sediment control, and protecting exposed land against the ravages of wind and water, GRT’s advanced polymer technology delivers the complete erosion control solution.
Many of the current erosion and sediment control plan options rely on capturing sediment in silt fences, check dams, and sedimentation ponds. These structures need continual maintenance and don’t treat the source of the problem. GRT: Enviro-Binder keeps the soil in place – where you want it! Offering fast results and proven to outperform in any situation, our non-toxic, environmentally-friendly formula has been extensively tested and trialled in multiple environments.
GRT’s innovative sprayed-on polymer erosion control solution works quickly to immediately penetrate the top layer of the soil and form a durable layer, that is bound to the underlying material. Unlike other erosion control methods, GRT’s product supports seed and vegetation growth, while maintaining its effective erosion and dust suppression properties over the long term.
All-in-one environmentally safe soil erosion solutions
Ideal for use on high-risk exposed areas, GRT’s all-in-one erosion control solution can be quickly and easily applied with minimal soil preparation required. Once dried, it is immediately effective, binding the soil to prevent the impact of water and wind, as well as erosion from sheet flow flat surfaces, batters, and stockpiles. Best of all, its formulation allows it to be used in the most environmentally sensitive environments.
Water Clarification and Sediment Control
In addition to stopping erosion, our sediment control and water clarification range is designed to remove suspended solids from water holding bodies such as sediment basins, ponds, and storage dams. The products are:
- GRT: Floc CC – Utilises coagulant technology to chemically treat water causing suspended particles to combine together (coags). Works hand in hand with –
- GRT: Liquid Floc – Long Chain Polymer technology that grabs the coags and drops them out of suspension. This 2 pronged attack on dirty water is also pH neutral so water is safe to discharge into downstream receiving waters.
- GRT: Floc Blocs – Floc Blocs are solidified blocks that incorporate the GRT: Liquid Floc technology that can be placed in table drains that so water is treated as it passes over them! Perfect to “set and forget” on the inlet to onsite sediment basins.
GRT’s water clarification, sediment control and our erosion control products are non-toxic, so it is safe for land-based and aquatic native fauna and flora, livestock, and crops, and can be used as part of any erosion and sediment control plan (ESCP).
Impacts of erosion in infrastructure
Almost 45% of all soil in Queensland has some sodic properties. Sodic soil is the term given to soil that holds sodium – a cation (a positive ion) – that is held loosely on clay particles in the soil.
High sodicity in soil causes clay to swell when it’s wet, and the clay particles move so far apart that they disperse. This, in turn, weakens the aggregate in the soil, causing collapses, and closing off soil pores. Sodic soils are particularly vulnerable to most forms of soil erosion and can affect the infrastructure of roads. Soil stabilisation is a vital component of successful road construction, and considering bitumen and concrete produce a lot of runoff, necessary steps need to be taken with stabilising soil in road construction.
In mining and exploration activities, the natural drainage of the land is interfered with as roads are built and digs undertaken. Disturbing the soil can cause environmental issues like erosion and silting of waterways. Mining exploration requires the development of hundreds of kilometres of roads and tracks, and because of this, soil stability and erosion prevention is a vital component of ensuring environmentally safe mining works.
By using GRT erosion control products to prevent the interaction of water with sodic soils, and then to manage any run off with our Water Clarification and Sediment control products, GRT provides a top and tail approach to managing erosion and sediment – for both project ESCP’s and permanent operations.
Cost-effective soil erosion control for greater savings
GRT is among the most cost-effective soil erosion control methods, with exceptional results achieved using only small quantities sprayed directly onto the surface.
This simple application means there’s no need for your staff to spend time installing any item or additional product treatments onto battered surfaces. Long-term savings on water costs are also achieved with GRT. As a scientifically formulated waterproof product, it is not affected by rainfall or storm events, while offering long-term protection with minimal maintenance required. Water runoff or loss is also significantly reduced, which can result in water savings of up 30% via a reduction in required irrigation frequency.
Other savings derived from GRT include a reduction in the wash off or leaching of expensive fertilisers and pesticides normally lost from rain and runoff. And because there’s less soil crusting with GRT’s erosion control product, germination rates of crust-sensitive plants are greatly improved. Our unique formula allows a diverse range of projects to protect against erosion, reduce the safety and environmental risk, and ultimately save more time and money. It’s the ultimate product to solve erosion and sedimentation issues – even in the most environmentally sensitive areas.

Effective soil binder & erosion control
GRT-ENVIRO SOIL BINDER & EROSION CONTROL is an organic soil conditioner based on a water-soluble polymer. This product can be added to irrigation water to reduce soil erosion by agglomerating fine particles that otherwise would be carried away by surface water runoff.
