London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/23/2015 -- Geocells, also known as cellular confinement systems, are made of HDPE (high density polyethelene) or polymeric-alloy strips that can be expanded to form a three dimensional honeycomb structure, to be packed with filling agents such as sand, concrete, soil or rock. The primary use of the cellular confinement system is to control soil erosion and induce stabilization, especially on steep slopes and flat grounds. The applications of geocells are to cut or fill the embankments, in building dams and spillways, landfill capping, abutment protection, building revetments in coastal regions, and geomembrane protection, among others.

Cellular confinement systems help to construct roads or permanent structures in regions with soft soils and inaccessible landfill. In regions where traditional reinforcement is unfeasible due to cost or availability, geocells are used to provide stability to ground. The load bearing capacity of geocells support several key constructions such as roadways, storage or transportation yards, railway track, and even runways and drainage layers in airports. The material is also used to protect slopes from erosion due to surface runoff. It helps to protect geo-membranes on landfills, waste water or storm water containment basins. It is also applied in dam slopes and spillways. Cellular confinement systems are frequently used to stabilize loose soil on steep embankments to protect slopes and shorelines. River banks are areas which require erosion control measures and geocells find extensive application there. Another important application of cellular confinement systems is channel lining. It helps is resisting the highly erosive forces of concentrated fast moving water. It is also used to protect and retain walls in regions with soft and eroding soils. It is a cost effective way of preventing wall erosion due to storm water runoff, while maintaining aesthetics by meeting design requirements. Geocells also support vegetation, which adds to the aesthetic beauty of the area of application.
The market for geocells is driven by the construction, restoration and beautification measures undertaken by various governments across the world. Construction activities in geographically hostile regions generate demand for cellular confinement systems. Infrastructural developments projects such as dams and spillways also account for a substantial demand for geocells. Moderate demand is also derived from road construction activities, where traditional methods are inaccessible or costly.
At present the applications of geocells are mostly confined to North America, and Europe, however tremendous potential of the product could be unearthed in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. Heavy construction activities in the desert countries could be complemented by the use of geocells. Asia has a host of countries which face severe flood problems due to erosion of river banks, and changing course of rivers. Restoration and beautification of the vulnerable river banks could be achieved if the cellular confinement systems are applied there. The functional and cost effectiveness of geocells are attributes that suits best for the application requirements in the Asia Pacific region. China is among one of the most prominent manufacturers of cellular confinement systems owing to the easy availability feed-stocks and numerous HDPE manufacturers.
Some of the major companies operating in the market are Nilex, Presto, Strata, Nanyang Jieda, Typar, Terram, AllianceGeo, Atarfil, Yixing Huadong, Maccaferri, Hongxiang, Taian Road Engineering, Hengshui Baoli, Dezhou Dongfang Geotextile Haining Jihua, Anhui Huifeng, , Anhui Zongwan, Taian Naite, Hua Teng Plastic, Tenax, Feicheng Hengfeng, Gansu Newcentry, and Shandong Lewu among many others.
