High performance environmentally sensitive concrete solutions that enhance the biological and ecological value of urban, coastal, and marine infrastructures
Coastal ecosystems are among the most modified and threatened globally. Coastal societies have historically armored or hardened shorelines with a variety of engineering structures that are harmful for marine ecosystems and biodiversity. Sea level rise and increased storminess will result in increased development which strengthen the need for a sustainable, bio-enhancing solution.
Founded in 2012, ECOncrete developed a suite of high performance environmentally sensitive concrete solutions for urban and marine infrastructures. The technology creates a significant added value through a combination of a unique Admix and patented designs that generate:
1. Structure stability & durability
2. Enhanced biological recruitment
3. Cost effectiveness
ECOncrete addresses the need for reducing the ecological footprint of coastal and marine infrastructures by elevating biodiversity in urbanized shorelines, enhancing ecosystem services of marine environments and increasing CO2 absorption capacity, subsequently supporting coastal ecosystems’ resilience.
