Ecological concrete structure

Jérémy Gobé and his partners develop ecological, constructible and submersible materials in order to create a structure allowing the coral to rebuild itself where it has been destroyed.

Since the summer of 2019, the first prototypes of these structures have been tested with anemones at the aquarium of Trégastel. This has shown that the latter are conducive to the attachment, perennial fixation and reproduction of cnidarians, without releasing any toxic substance.

Further improved prototypes of these are in progress, intended to be immersed in an outdoor aquarium in Guadeloupe in 2021 before a first in situ installation in 2022.

lace as support

Jérémy Gobé and his partners continued a first research protocol between March 2018 and the end of 2019. This protocol has shown that cotton lace is a potential substrate for the fixation of the coral and the recruitment of its larvae which must however continue to be improved, in particular in terms of yield, so that it can compete with polluting supports. existing (plastics, concrete, ...).

 

Since the creation of the Corail Artefact project, Jérémy Gobé has been thinking about a 2.0 lace, from fibers even sharper than cotton, impregnated with natural extracts attracting larvae, promoting their grip, metamorphosis and development while warding off harmful competitors such as encrusting algae that are more resistant to temperature changes.

 

Between mid 2020 and March of this year, new prototypes were made; the tests have just been launched in Guadeloupe in an outdoor aquarium, as close as possible to in situ conditions before experiments in real conditions in 2022.

Le problème

Le bouturage des coraux se fait habituellement avec des supports en plastiques ou en béton et des agents collants toxiques.

In France, we use 25 million plastic bottles every day. These containers are for single use; only a small part is recyclable. The rest is either buried or dumped in our oceans. Degradation in nature is slow, rejects toxic particles like endocrine disruptors, etc. All of this contributes to the acceleration of the harmful effects of global warming.

Corail Artefact offers an ecological alternative to plastic objects, made from biopolymers (PLA type), materials made from corn, sugar beet or bacteria. Although products made from these materials look like plastic, unlike plastic, they are completely bio-based, industrially compostable and / or biodegradable, reusable and certified GMO-free.
