TenCate AquaVia mission stands in one sentence:

Let’s boost nature to clean infiltrated stormwater!

How can we reach this sustainable goal to preserve this rare and fragile natural resource?

TenCate AquaVia offers technical solutions that allow infrastruture construction which respects the natural water cycle.

At TenCate AquaVia, our scope starts from the design phase up to the close collaboration with our customers and partners in training, supporting and optimizing the overall infrastructure costs. We always keep this key goal in mind: make sure that our aquatextile is the best solution to fit the expectations of the project to restore clean water to nature.

TenCate AquaVia designs, manufactures, sells and distributes its oil-biodegrading aquatextile range.

For whom this solution is designed?

Our aquatextile range is aimed at civil engineering designers, local municipalities, water agencies, stakeholders who are looking for alternative solutions to manage stormwater not only in quantity but also in quality.

Water pollution is high and  well known. Whether we are citizens, industrial consumers of water or wildlife and flora, we all need clean rivers, lakes and groundwater. Clean rivers, lakes and groundwater, as well as preserved wildlife and flora are increasingly the concern of all citizens.

Water protection is therefore one of the priorities of the European Union. European Water Policy aims to get polluted waters clean again, and ensure clean waters are staying clean. Our solution scope acts in line with this EU directive. 

Our commitment with the 17 goals to transform our world  

The company’s commitment is in line with the United Nation’s sustainable development campaign and its agenda for 2030. It covers 5 areas:

Goal 6: Clean Water and sanitation

Clean water that is accessible to all is an essential element of the world in which we would like to live.

Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Investments in infrastructure are essential to achieve sustainable development.

Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities

The future that we aspire to includes cities that offer great possibilities to all.

Goal 14: Life below water

Careful management of our oceans and seas is vital for a sustainable future.

Goal 15: Life on land

Deforestation and desertification pose major challenges to sustainable development.

Our mission is the answer to our vision of restoring water at its rightful place in our environment and we aim at making urban development and environmental protection coexisting harmoniously.

Fresh water resources are highly vital and scarce (less than 1% on earth). Additionally, the urbanization growth entails an increase in impermeable surfaces, producing large volumes of runoff water polluted with oil. TODAY, it is even more crucial to manage stormwater in quality and not only in quantity by ensuring greater infiltration of clean water. Thanks to our TenCate GeoClean® aquatextiles, we provide a clean, sustainable, economical and maintenance-free solution, avoiding expensive and often saturated collection structures.
