ECOncrete® - An environmentally sensitive concrete solution that enhances the biological and ecological value of urban, coastal and marine structures.

ECOncrete® provides a revolutionary science-based approach to eco-engineering.

ECOncrete® provides a suit of bio-enhancing concrete admix materials and science-based designs which increase biodiversity and richness floral and faunal communities, while adding strength and longevity and complying with all standards for marine construction. The technology provides robust, environmentally sensitive concrete solutions for the ever-growing Climate Change threats such as sea-level rise and superstorms. The core innovation lays in the unique bio-enhancing concrete composition, complex surface textures, and 3D designs that act in synergy to increase the ecological value of breakwaters, seawalls, pier piles and alike, while improving their structural performance. The technology was validated in 30 locations across 8 countries and 6 oceans, conducted simultaneously in temperate and tropical environments, exhibiting excellent results.
