Geofabrics Secures Membership to the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA)
Geofabrics Australasia, the leading manufacturer and distributor of geosynthetics products throughout the Australian, New Zealand and Pacific Region, is pleased to announce it has secured membership to the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA).
The ISCA membership is aligned to Geofabrics’ development of a portfolio of sustainable geosynthetics products manufactured in Australia and utilising Australian sourced recycled materials. ISCA is a member-based peak body operating in Australia and New Zealand to promote sustainability outcomes in infrastructure.
Geofabrics is the only manufacturer in Australia of a suite of geosynthetic products that build Australia’s national road, rail, mining infrastructure and has recently launched Australia’s first “green” geotextile that incorporates recycled PET bottles in the manufacturing process. Bidim Green now provides the infrastructure community with the only sustainable, and the only Australian made, geotextile for deployment into civil engineering projects.
Dennis Grech, Managing Director & CEO of Geofabrics Australasia states “Geofabrics’ products have contributed to the delivery of many Infrastructure projects in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific and indeed throughout our key export markets. Geofabrics’ is playing its part in shaping the future of infrastructure sustainability by introducing Bidim Green. The association of Geofabrics with the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia is a significant step for our business. Geofabrics has a rich history in Australian manufacturing and building Australia’s road, rail, and mining infrastructure. We take great pride in doing this with sensitivity to our environment and to innovate and launch new products that deliver real social, environmental and economic benefit to our country. These values are very much aligned with ISCA’s values, and I look forward to Geofabrics continuing to build our nation’s strategic assets in partnership with ISCA.”
Further, “Bidim Green will also be available on the ISupply directory which will allow our customers to add, for the first time, an Australian made geotextile to their IS rated projects. Bidim Green is an Australian made geotextile incorporating Australian sourced recycled plastics and presents to the civil engineering community the opportunity to incorporate in infrastructure projects, not only an Australian made geotextile but a geotextile that makes a significant contribution to reducing waste to landfill and to further create local jobs for Australians in our manufacturing community.”
Geofabrics will announce the registration of Bidim Green on the ISupply directory in the next few weeks and further announcements regarding the development of further sustainable geosynthetic products and the placement of these products on the ISupply directory.
