Eighty-three 1-ton bags filled with Trisplast premix all the way from Holland were offloaded at the Sustainability Institute on Wednesday. The forklift and three big trucks caused much excitement for the Lynedoch Primary school children who stumbled upon the offloading process on their way home. The Trisoplast premix will be used to line the new horizontal wetland, located next to the current vertical wetland.
Trisoplast is a base or surface sealant that was developed in the Netherlands and is widely used to line landfill sites in Europe. A certification company in Finland has certified the product safe to the environment. Maluti Water designed the new wetland and will assist during the construction process. Construction will start in the next couple of weeks, so do pop in!
