Coastbusters: Ecosystem based coastal defense

Speaker: Tomas Sterckx Project & Business development manager, DEME
Co-speakers: Alexia Semeraro

The Coastbusters Project investigates and tests certain key bio builder species (such as seagrasses or seaweeds, bivalves and tube building worms) to enhance coastal stabilisation. The idea is to add a positive effect to the natural processes and dynamics towards a healthy and dynamic ecosystem. Such a healthy ecosystem has several additional benefits (i.e. “ecosystem services”) including coastal defense and improvement in biodiversity.
