ECOncrete® tailors robust, cost-effective, concrete solutions that harness biological processes for the benefit of the environment on one hand, and of the structure on the other

The company’s products include:
1. Bio-enhancing concrete admixtures
2. Science based forms & form liners
3. Designed precast elements (wet & dry cast products)

All ECOncrete admixtures comply with ASTM and EN standards typically required for coastal and marine constructions. We tailor our mix designs according to the specific needs of each project and product, and all of our admixtures are routinely tested in certified laboratories.

Armoring Unit

Armoring units are modular building blocks of marine infrastructure, which provide coastal defense against hydrodynamic forces.

ECOncrete® ecological armoring units comply with the formal requirements for coastal and marine construction and additionally create marine habitats, encourage growth of marine flora and fauna, increase species richness, reduce the influence of invasive species and enhance biodiversity.

ECOncrete® Armoring Unit’s dimensions can be fitted to specific project requirements.

The specific concrete matrix used for the casting is defined according to the project’s distinct constructive and biological requirements.

The design of ECOncrete® units allows them to receive various add-on elements for targeted enhancement.

Designed tide pools

ECOncrete®’s tide pools can be integrated into riprap, revetment and breakwater zones and are designed to be easily installed by standard landscaping techniques.
The tide pools are designed to create water retaining elements which are absent in most urban waterfronts. They create well-defined local ecosystems that mimic natural rock pools typical to rocky coasts, and increase local biodiversity and biological productivity.

ECOncrete® Tide Pools are designed to mimic natural inter-tidal areas. With the Tide Pool’s constructive abilities, it can be integrated within a breakwater system or biologically enhance a shoreline.

Marine mattresses

ECOncrete®’s articulated marine mattresses are designed to provide shoreline stabilization and erosion control as well as for anchoring and protecting exposed underwater pipelines. ECOncrete®’s unique chemical and physical properties enhance the ability of the mattress to encourage growth of marine flora and fauna, increase species richness, reduce the dominance of invasive species and elevate biodiversity.
The mattresses are comprised of interlocking concrete blocks connected with a polyester cable making for easy transport and installation as well as the potential for tailor fit sizes.

The Product was developed with Besser company, a world leader in drycast manufacturing machinery, under the prestigious BIRD program (The Israel – United States Binational Industrial Research and Development Foundation).

Dry cast production allows for rapid production cycles cost effectiveness and world-wide availability.

Enhanced sea walls

ECOncrete® produces a range of modular sea wall elements which functionally integrate into coastal and marine infrastructure.
The unique properties of ECOncrete® elements support the growth of targeted marine organisms through design alteration and chemical modification of the concrete mix. These alterations do not affect the structural and functional properties of the sea wall, while adding strength, reducing maintenance, and increasing life span of the sea wall as biogenic material accumulates providing bioprotection.

The Sea Walls’ surface textures can be modified according to the project’s design theme bringing the environmental considerations into account.

ECOncrete®’s Sea Walls design can be modified to accommodate various anchoring methods used in the industry.

Bio-active walls

Bio-active wall elements are designed to induce rapid plant wall coverage of inland buildings. Green plant coverage significantly improves urban landscape, provides cleaner and healthier air, and reduces the ecological footprint of urban development.
The physical and chemical properties of the wall elements strongly influence the capability to support and enhance growth. ECOncrete®’s bio-active wall induces natural growth of wall clinging plants, endolithic algae, lichens and mosses. Its high complexity and porosity create moist niches that support flora, without the need for complex soil systems.
ECOncrete®’s Bio-active wall elements are a great solution for areas like sunken gardens and facades, and can integrate planting pockets for increasing green coverage.

Pile encapsulation

ECOncrete®’s ecological pile encapsulation substitutes standard pile encasements, applied to protect steel piles or repair timber pier piles deteriorated by marine burrowers such as worms and mussels.
In addition to the necessary constructive support and protection, ECOncrete®’s ecological pile encapsulation creates a new and productive habitat for marine plants and animals such as fish, crabs, and oysters.
ECOncrete®’s ecological piles encapsulation has shown excellent biological capabilities, including the addition of nursing grounds for key species like the Atlantic blue crab (Callinectes Sapidus).
Independent structural inspection conducted by CH2MHILL engineers a year post deployment and after a heavily iced winter revealed “hard and sound concrete.”

Admix

ECOncrete®’s bio-enhancing admix is integrated into concrete mixes for precast products, both dry cast and wet cast, as well as in situ casting projects.

ECOncrete®’s admix, added as ~10% of the cement content in the mix, strengthens the concrete’s compression forces, reduces chloride permeability and in most cases can reduce the amount of Portland cement within the mix, thus reducing the project/product CO2 footprint.

Admix supply is carefully tailored for each project according to the used batching process, and can be shipped in small bags, 1 Ton bags, and bulk.
