Retrofitable carbon neutral seawall tiles to increase the surface complexity of e.g. ports and harbours to increase marine biodiversity net gain
Habitiles are retrofitable low carbon concrete tiles made from Marine Crete, our carbon neutral plastic free alternative to Portland cement. They are designed to withstand tidal forces whilst creating greater habitat complexity than traditional sea walls, which tend to be smooth surface textures and are deliberately made difficult for marine life to colonise.
Building with nature encourages settlement and colonisation to increase marine biodiversity and the natural eco-system services and carbon sequestration benefits of flora and fauna. Bivalve settlement for instance helps filter seawater naturally improving water quality and allowing sunlight to penetrate further allowing more growth at greater depths creating a win-win for nature and cleaner ports and harbours.
The units showcased are hexagonal measuring 600mm across, weigh around 35kg each and can be made with the sponsors name/logo for added PR benefits when supporting local communities with infrastructure enhancements.
