About us


We want to promote nature-based solutions, so that water regains its place in its natural environment, and land-use planning respects the environment, to the benefit of all living beings.


TenCate AquaVia provides technical solutions for building sustainable infrastructures that respect the natural water cycle to preserve water quality and safety.


TenCate AquaVia is the embodiment of the team's core values, which guide our every action. We firmly believe in the power of the collective to advance towards our common goal.

Stormwater management

Why specialize in stormwater management?

Stormwater management plays a key role in the development of a region. Better stormwater management means eliminating the pollution generated by human activity and returning clean water to the soil.

From the outset, AquaVia has specialized in the treatment of stormwater, particularly when it infiltrates into the ground.

In contrast to the old-fashioned and costly "all-pipe" technique, we prefer decentralized, "at-source" or "integrated and sustainable" management. We are convinced that water, a fundamental element of life on Earth, deserves this differentiated approach, which enables us to renaturalize territories, restore soil richness and limit the effects of global warming.

Clean infiltration is key

Preserving water quality is at the heart of our concerns to build a sustainable world for future generations.

We believe that a modern territory encompasses the notions of innovation, integrated stormwater management, circularity and urban well-being.

We want to restore water to its rightful place in the environment, and see the emergence of a harmonious coexistence between land-use planning and respect for the environment, for the benefit of all living beings.

TenCate AquaVia

A French company committed to the environment

Since 2020, TenCate AquaVia has been designing and manufacturing, in France, aquatextile solutions that depollute rainwater as it infiltrates into the ground, thereby preserving water quality, soil quality and biodiversity.

These depolluting aquatextiles aim to protect our environment from potential micropollutant pollution, and to preserve biodiversity and human health.

TenCate AquaVia is a subsidiary of the Solmax group.

A united team with shared principles

Water conservation is at the heart of our environmental concerns, and brought us together to found and develop TenCate AquaVia.

The desire to change the course of our industry and our ecosystem calls for collective energy and strong action. That's why we believe it's the responsibility of companies like ours to innovate and move the yardsticks through concrete commitments to a better ecological transition.

We are convinced that this requires new land-use planning and the promotion of a stormwater management model that is more respectful of the water cycle, in order to restore water quality and preserve soil biodiversity.

Jean-Pascal Mermet

"Freshwater resources are vital, yet scarce (less than 1% on earth). In addition, the growth of urbanization is leading to an increase in impervious surfaces, producing large volumes of hydrocarbon-polluted runoff.

TODAY, it's even more crucial to manage stormwater in terms of quality, not just quantity, by ensuring greater infiltration of clean water. Thanks to our InDi'Green® and GeoClean® active oleo-depolluting aquatextiles, we offer a clean, long-lasting, cost-effective and maintenance-free solution, which also helps to limit expensive and often saturated collection structures."
