REMOVAL

G3 polymers need not to be to removed from site


After a simple and fast treatment G3 polymers can be disposed on site

DISPOSAL
Disposal procedure (30min):
1. Correct pH to 6 – 9 with hydrochloric acid (HCl)
2. Break the polymer chain with Calcium Hypochlorite

ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES

G3 polymers are environmentally friendly products


GEO’s products are not contaminants, not pollutants and respect the
environment

LEGAL REGULATION
GEO’s products where approved to be disposed on the environment in:
Example: Spain (CEDEX – Government lab for civil engineering and
environment)

GEO is keen to support further studies in other countries

How does GEO reduces the project TIME?
Compared to CASING

Immediate drilling Start-up


No casing required,
required only water (salt or fresh)
Less and lighter equipment to displace on site
Less tasks required for a faster production cycle
