Reprinted from Intelligent Living by Andrea D. Steffen
Summary: 

ECOncrete succeeds in making coastlines less disruptive to marine ecosystems by replacing intrusive concrete structures (like seafloor mats and seawalls) with products that blend in with their surroundings. It accomplishes this through biomimicry – a technique that relies on the textures, shapes, and sizes of natural systems to dictate how a product is built. The result is a bio-enhancing material that helps marine life thrive.
