EarthGuard Fiber Matrix Accepted by Three State Departments of Transportation

Georgia, North Dakota and Virginia DOTs Join the Growing List of State Departments Recommending Use of EarthGuard FM

BAKERSFIELD, CA--(Marketwired - July 23, 2014) - Terra Novo, a leading manufacturer of erosion and sediment-control products in Bakersfield, Calif., today announced the acceptance of its pre-packaged, one-step erosion- and sediment-control product, EarthGuard Fiber Matrix, as an approved erosion-control product by the state departments of transportation in Georgia, North Dakota and Virginia.

"By using EarthGuard Fiber Matrix, our customers not only benefit from its incredible results, but its affordability," says Scott Harrison, president of Terra Novo. "Material and labor costs are significantly reduced, providing the customer with exceptional results for a considerably lower cost than the competition. It's always exciting to hear that our product is being accepted and recommended by state agencies across the U.S., proving that it's raising an industry standard."

Below are the details of EarthGuard Fiber Matrix's recent achievements:

  • The Georgia Department of Transportation New Products Evaluation Committee has accepted EarthGuard Fiber Matrix to its list of approved products for use in road and bridge construction or maintenance.

  • The North Dakota of Transportation recently accepted EarthGuard Fiber Matrix as an approved erosion-control product.

  • The Virginia Department of Transportation's New Products Committee recently approved EarthGuard Fiber Matrix for use as an EC-3 Soil Stabilization Mat. EarthGuard Fiber Matrix has been added to VDOT Approved List 57- Standard.

EarthGuard Fiber Matrix is a patented technology, which combines EarthGuard -- a spray-on emulsion that reduces erosion and sediment runoff -- and wood/cellulose fiber to form a matrix that provides extended erosion control protection in severe situations. It is chemically engineered to be effective at low rates while absorbing the impact of raindrops and providing immediate dust control, erosion control and soil stabilization until permanent vegetation is established or construction has resumed. EarthGuard Fiber Matrix's versatility allows it to be highly effective in many applications: erosion control, slope stabilization, dust abatement, landscape design, reclamation, storm water runoff protection, fire/burn rehabilitation, land development and golf-course construction. 

EarthGuard Fiber Matrix works by creating a liquid net, providing soil aggregate protection, flocculating fine sediments and controlling splash erosion. It stops the breakdown of erosion forces in the dirt rather than simply blanketing the soil, as a flexible growth medium or bonded fiber matrix (BFM) does. Because it works on the soil rather than on mulch or synthetic fibers, users save on cost without compromising performance. Competitors' spray-on blanket products must cover 100% of a surface area in order to work. EarthGuard covers more area in a shorter amount of time and naturally spreads to untreated areas, requiring significantly less product and labor.

Terra Novo's patented, university-tested and worksite-proven products are distributed in all 50 states and Canada and exported internationally. For more information, visit www.terranovo.com.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle.
