Super Absorbent Polymer use in sandless Flood bags

May 24th,2024

Dubai Airport, one of the world's busiest airports, closed on Tuesday after storms and heavy rain caused flooding in some Gulf countries 【1】.

The UAE is known for its hot, sunny weather, with reports of more than 100 millimeters of rain falling in some places in 24 hours, the highest in the 75 years since the country began recording rainfall.

The local government also issued a red alert and closed office buildings, schools and banks. The storm hit other parts of the Middle East, with at least 19 people killed by flooding in Oman, local media reported 【2】.

When encountering extreme flood weather, it is crucial to take prompt and effective response measures. Can effectively reduce personal and social losses.

What are the flood control measures?

Comprehensive Measures

1. Integrated watershed management: Considering all factors within a watershed for comprehensive management, including water resource management, land use planning, and ecological protection.

2. Urban flood control planning: Fully integrating flood control needs into urban planning by reasonably arranging urban functional areas and reserving flood channels and drainage facilities.


By implementing these measures, flood disasters can be effectively prevented and mitigated and sustainable economic and social development promoted. When floods occur, we can take some flood prevention measures ourselves to protect our property.


Flood control measures refer to the various means and methods employed to prevent and mitigate flood disasters. These measures can be divided into two main categories:

Engineering Measures

1.Building reservoirs: Constructing reservoirs upstream of rivers to regulate floodwaters and reduce peak flow rates.

2. Dredging rivers: Cleaning and deepening river channels to increase their flood discharge capacity.

3. Flood walls: Constructing flood walls around cities or important facilities to protect specific areas.

4. Flood diversion projects: Creating flood diversion zones or channels to redirect part of the floodwaters during high flow events, thereby reducing pressure on the main river channel.

5. Construction of levees: Building levees on both sides of rivers to prevent floodwaters from overflowing.

Non-Engineering Measures

1. Flood forecasting and early warning: Establishing flood monitoring and forecasting systems to timely issue flood warnings.

2. Flood control regulations and policies: Developing and implementing laws and policies related to flood control to regulate land use and construction activities.

3. Emergency plans and drills: Formulating flood emergency plans and conducting regular drills to enhance emergency response capabilities.

4. Public education and awareness: Raising public awareness about flood prevention and self-rescue through education and outreach.

5. Ecological restoration and protection: Enhancing natural flood retention capacity by afforestation and wetland restoration.

Advantages of Sandless Flood Bags

Sandless flood bags are a new type of flood control tool that offer several advantages over traditional sand-filled flood bags:


  1.  Lightweight and Portable: Sandless flood bags are small and lightweight when not in use, making them easy to store and transport. Traditional sand-filled flood bags require sand filling before use, increasing their weight and complexity.


2. Rapid Deployment: Sandless flood bags can quickly expand upon contact with water to form a flood barrier, significantly reducing deployment time. Traditional flood bags require manual filling and stacking, which is time-consuming.


3. Easy Operation: Using sandless flood bags does not require special tools or equipment. Simply place them in the desired location and allow them to contact water to expand and form. This reduces the need for manual labor.


4. Environmentally Friendly: Sandless flood bags are typically made from biodegradable or recyclable materials, reducing environmental impact. Traditional sand bags are difficult to dispose of and can cause environmental pollution.


5. Versatility: Sandless flood bags can be used not only for flood control but also for emergency rescue, road repairs, temporary water barriers, and more, making them highly versatile.


6. Efficiency and Durability: Once expanded, sandless flood bags form a solid barrier with high water pressure resistance and can maintain their shape and function for a certain period, ensuring effective flood control.


7. Cost-Effective: Although sandless flood bags may have a higher unit price compared to traditional sand bags, their ease of use, rapid deployment, and reduced labor and time costs can result in lower overall costs.


In summary, sandless flood bags play an important role in modern flood control and emergency rescue due to their lightweight, quick deployment, environmental friendliness, and versatility.
