Floating Covers


Floating Covers: A COMANCO Guide

Geosynthetics are transforming how we manage liquids in various industries, and one particularly innovative application is the use of floating covers. These barriers, crafted from high-performance geomembranes, float atop liquid surfaces, protecting them from threats and providing valuable benefits.

Made from durable geosynthetics like HDPE or LLDPE, floating covers are giant, impenetrable barriers that float on top of a pond, tank, or reservoir. They are engineered to withstand harsh weather, UV radiation, and even chemical exposure. These traits make them a reliable and long-lasting solution for liquid management.


The advantages of floating covers are diverse and significant. By creating a physical barrier, these covers shield liquids from contaminants like dust, debris, and pathogens, making them crucial for protecting drinking water, aquaculture, and industrial processes. In addition, they significantly minimize evaporation losses in arid regions or applications where water conservation is paramount, translating to substantial water savings and reduced energy consumption for pumping and treatment.

Floating covers also act as a lid for wastewater lagoons and industrial tanks, trapping unpleasant odors and preventing their release into the atmosphere. This improves air quality and fosters a more pleasant environment for nearby communities. Furthermore, in specific applications, floating covers can be used to capture biogas generated by the decomposition of organic matter beneath the liquid surface, which can then be used for energy generation, further enhancing the system’s sustainability.

As a result, floating covers are finding their way into many industries, from potable water reservoirs and wastewater treatment plants to mining operations and agriculture. Their versatility and multifaceted benefits make them a compelling solution for various liquid management challenges.
