OUTSOURCED BUSINESS AND STORIES
 

"Biopod": biohabitat in concrete underwater tetrapods
 
The smooth surface of concrete underwater infrastructures does not help marine species to create a nest. A recent project has brought a technique from the plastic injection molding industry into conventional concrete casting. This has lead to concrete tetrapods with a suitable surface that can help marine biology to thrive on and around it. More info available here!
