Coastal Innovations offers Coastline Erosion Protection Mats

As the sea level rises, the scale of coastline erosion, caused primarily by the motion of waves and currents, increases as well. If not stopped, coastal erosion leads to land loss and property damages, ultimately resulting in habitat loss for coastal ecosystems. To mitigate these effects, startups develop erosion control solutions that protect beaches and coastal infrastructure.

US-based startup Coastal Innovations develops coastline erosion protection mats. The concrete or sand contents of the startup’s FlexaFORCE mats provide flexible coastline protection and anchoring in various marine environments. Coastal Innovations’ product enables erosion control in ports and docks, on riverbanks, cliffs, and rocky beaches, as well as for pipeline and cable protection.

Coastal Engineering Solutions designs Coastal Restoration Projects

Often, the protection and restoration of coasts and coastal ecosystems require large-scale projects such as shoreline stabilization and new marsh development. While such projects ensure safety for waterside properties, they also allow for the reintroduction of native species to their ecosystems. To this avail, startups provide planning, engineering, and design services for coastline restoration projects.

US-based startup Coastal Engineering Solutions provides expertise for coastal restoration projects and carries them out as well. The startup plans, engineers, and designs projects such as coastal marsh creation, beach nourishment, and shoreline restoration. Additionally, Coastal Engineering Solutions conducts slope stability & flood protection alignment analyses and cost estimation to predict and mitigate future threats.

Wave Swell Energy (WSE) develops Wave-Energy Harnessing Breakwaters

Traditional wave power generation technologies require an underwater installation of harnessing devices. However, the utilization of oscillating water columns (OWCs) technologies enables the development of above water devices that are capable of converting wave energy. The offshore positioning of such devices allows for their application as breakwaters for coastal protection. By developing and applying such floating platforms, startups limit wave activity, thus protecting coastlines from erosion.

Australian startup Wave Swell Energy develops wave-energy harnessing platforms that act as breakwaters for coastline protection. The startup leverages OWCs technologies with uni-directional flow for wave energy conversion. Moreover, when the units are placed side by side, they replace traditional breakwater, sea walls, and groynes as a shore protective barrier.

Tēnaka creates Carbon Offsetting Projects for Coastal Ecosystems

Coastal vegetation is important for surface stability and protects shores against wind and tidal erosion. Therefore, the protection and restoration of coastal vegetation prevents erosion and promotes habitat diversity in coastal ecosystems. This is why startups design vegetation restoration projects, protecting coastlines and coastal ecosystems, as well as providing offsetting solutions to businesses.

French social startup Tēnaka creates carbon offsetting projects for coastal ecosystem protection. The startup designs mangrove tree plantation and coral reef restoration projects. Additionally, the startup’s Tēnaka Science Platform provides quantitative impact measurement for environmental reporting. By designing corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects, the startup helps businesses promote their brands and engage customers.

Hillblock builds Slope-lining Revetment Blocks

Dikes and revetment systems are commonly used for coastal erosion and flooding protection in low-lying areas. However, conventional revetments often fail to withstand wave power during extreme weather events such as storms and tsunamis. Therefore, startups design revetment systems that reduce the pressure between the blocks, thereby increasing the wave energy absorption.

Dutch scaleup Hillblock develops slope-lining revetment blocks for coastal erosion protection. The scaleup’s system leverages the voids between the blocks and the gaps between their heads to reduce the waves’ strength and impact. Moreover, the system’s layout reduces wave run-up and delays its return flow, thus minimizing coastal erosion.
