THE CHALLENGE

With growing climate change risks, forward-thinking ports are not only adapting their infrastructure, but also taking actions to mitigate climate change.

 

Currently, 70% of coastal infrastructure is built with traditional concrete, which is toxic to many marine organisms and requires expensive maintenance - annually, there is an estimated €2.2 trillion cost of corrosion worldwide.

 

With the previous lack of de-risked, environmentally sensitive, industry standard solutions, a technically feasible solution to this problem remained out of reach. LIVING PORTS will change the standard of port construction by replacing traditional concrete while performing structurally.
