HUESKER ecoLine – Developed to conserve resources

The perfect combination of Sustainability and durability: HUESKER Synthetic is the first and currently the only manufacturer in the world to offer high-quality geogrids manufactured from 100 percent recycled PET fibres - naturally with CE accreditation.

The HUESKER Group, based in Gescher, Westphalia, not only develops innovative and technically sophisticated product solutions, sustainability also plays a significant role during the R&D process. With ecoLine, HUESKER is the first geosynthetic manufacturer in the world to offer high-quality reinforcement solutions made from recycled raw material, making a fundamental contribution to resource-conserving and sustainable construction with geosynthetics. Moving forward, HUESKER's well-known and proven polyester product lines, our HaTelit C asphalt reinforcement, our Fortrac T geogrid and our Basetrac Grid base course reinforcement and the extremely strong and durable Stabilenka geogrid are also available in Germany as ecoLine in addition to the original version.

The recycled material is obtained from disposed PET bottles and is an engineered equivalent alternative to virgin PET yarn. In addition to identical product properties, the CE marking required in Europe also makes the ecoLine reinforcement products a sustainable alternative for private and public developers.

"Our ecoLine products made from recycled yarn are a real and, above all, sustainable alternative that is in no way inferior to the conventional variant in terms of quality, safety and reliability." Sven Schröer, CSO HUESKER Synthetic GmbH


Reliable, safe and proven

Our ecoLine product solutions are characterised by their high quality and are as powerful as products made from virgin yarn. The recycled yarns used have proven original fibre quality and are indistinguishable from virgin yarns, both chemically and mechanically - an important prerequisite for the product. "We test all our products very carefully. They are only made available to the market when all the necessary evidence has been provided and they meet our high requirements. This naturally also applies to the ecoLine products and the recycled PET yarns used," explains Andreas Elsing, Head of Product Management at HUESKER. After extensive test phases, ecoLine products have already been used in practice in recent years, especially abroad, for example in the rehabilitation of Goldsborough Road in South Australia. Through its use, thousands of old PET bottles have beenrecycled and several tonnes of CO2 saved.

CO2reduction and resource conservation

"Climate protection and sustainability are more topical and urgent than ever. For this very reason, it is important for us to show that the necessary and important expansion of infrastructure can also function in a resource-saving and CO2-reducing way," explains Sven Schröer. The prerequisite for this is not only more sustainable alternatives, these solutions need to perform equal to or better than the original products. All HUESKER ecoLine reinforcement products therefore bear the CE mark and can subsequently be used within the European Union with confidence. With our recycled CE-certified ecoLine, HUESKER is offering public and private developers of earthworks and foundation engineering, road and traffic route construction and mining an even more sustainable alternative. Every kilogram of recycled PET yarn used reduces CO2 emissions by approximately 4.3 kilograms when compared to that of virgin yarn. Extrapolated to the production of geogrids the area of a football field, about 5,500 kilograms of CO2 are saved, which corresponds to a distance of approximately 42,400 kilometers by car or a trip around the entire globe. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, recycling the PET bottles saves valuable resources.
