The Biomimicry Institute and the Ray C. Anderson Foundation are proud to announce that this year’s Ray of Hope Prize has been awarded to ECOncrete Tech LTD., an Israeli-based company that develops high-performance, environmentally-sensitive concrete products for coastal and marine infrastructure projects. ECOncrete offers products that facilitate the growth and regeneration of local marine species and strengthen structures over time through a process known as bioprotection. Inspired by beach rock formations, coral polyps, oyster shells, mangrove roots, and other marine habitats, ECOncrete embodies biomimicry’s design intention: to learn from and mimic forms and processes found in nature to create regenerative solutions.
