ECOncrete® was founded by Dr. Shimrit Perkol-Finkel and Dr. Ido Sella, renowned marine biologists with vast international experience in the ecology and biology of artificial habitats within marine and urban environments.

ECOncrete ® technology seeks to provide sustainable solutions for the construction of ecologically active infrastructure by developing innovative concrete products designed to enhance the biological and ecological value of coastal marine and urban infrastructure. ECOncrete’s unique biological traits encourage biogenic build up. They also provide substantial structural and economic advantages in terms of increased stability and longevity, as well as a reduction in maintenance costs.

Products such as ECOncrete® Tide Pools mimic natural rock pools to create local ecosystems that increase biodiversity and biological productivity; vital as natural water retaining elements are absent in most urban waterfronts. The creation of Bio Active Wall Tiles has combined the technology originally developed to increase the ecological value of marine infrastructure into an urban landscape.

ECOncrete®’s partnership with Moore Concrete, as the exclusive Manufacturer & Distributor for the UK & Ireland, provides manufacturing expertise and local knowledge, built on a strategy of continued investment and forward thinking over the last 40 years, to provide the most innovative and relevant products for customers.
