Bringing Concrete to Life - Enhancing Natural Processes on Concrete Based Coastal and Marine Infrastructure (CMI)

ECOncrete Tech LTD (2019)

The ecological engineering of shorelines schemes is an evolving discipline (Mitsch., 2012) with the aim of building more inclusive, resilient and safe coastal and marine structures for people and nature that maximize benefits for ecosystems, society and economies (Mayer-Pinto et al., 2017). By integrating environmentally sensitive technologies into the planning, design, and construction of urban, coastal, and marine infrastructure, it is possible to harness natural processes both for ecological enhancement and improved structural performance, thus bridging development and sustainability.
