Through our partnership with the University of the West of Scotland (UWS), with innovation funding, we have successfully validated the material composition of our artificial reef structures.
This milestone marks the end of an important step towards making our structures ocean ready
Getting the material composition right is key for us at Build the Reef as we refuse to put just anything in the ocean. We want to ensure the materials we use will only benefit the ecosystems they are placed in, avoiding any harmful leaching and damage associated with standard materials.
We look forward to revealing full details of our structure composition in future, we are working with partners from diverse industries to use material that would otherwise go to landfill, preventing waste and reducing carbon emissions in the process. Stay tuned for future updates on this novel and exciting collaboration.
