Secure, environmentally-sound solutions for any shoreline protection needs

Blue Technology
Encourage the development of an ecosystem on industry-standard shoreline protection infrastructure.
Ecologically engineered
Ecologically Engineered
Added weight and surface complexity from marine life enable increased hydrodynamic stability and wave energy dissipation.
Sustainable ROI
Reduce environmental penalties and facilitate permitting via self-mitigating, ecological infrastructure.

    "Everyone at ECOncrete is an ocean optimist. Their approach, passion and commitment to sustainable coastal infrastructure is awe-inspiring. We’re proud to be partners and to explore together the possibilities of their COASTALOCK tide pool armor technology. There is an ocean of opportunity out there to grow the Blue Economy, and we are thrilled to join ECOncrete to demonstrate innovative eco-engineering solutions to protect and restore coastal ecosystems."

    Frequently asked questions

    have more questions? See full FAQ page

    How does biology affect hydrodynamic stability? Do you have data?
    A rough defensive layer of marine life like oysters and tubeworms encrusts ECOncrete, helping to dissipate wave energy, buffer hydrodynamic forces, and adding stabilizing weight. For data on a specific solution, send us a message.
    Why wouldn’t I get the same ecological value by building with rock?
    Bluestone or quarry rock have dense and homogeneous surfaces—leading to less life, more invasive species, and lower biodiversity. ECOncrete mimics natural coastal features, offering native habitat, shelter, and breeding spaces.
    Are there cost savings when using ECOncrete?
    Living infrastructure lowers environmental mitigation penalties by providing habitat, carbon storage, greater biodiversity, and protection of native species. In one U.S. project, mitigation penalties were reduced by approximately 80%, or about $15 million.
    Is ECOncrete reinforced?
    Units using ECOncrete’s technologies can be either steel or fiber reinforced depending on project requirements. ECOncrete’s admixture has been proven to reduce chloride penetration, serving to protect steel reinforcement members.
