Achieving clean water outcomes using nature’s filtration
methods is our focus 

We intend to provide the services @ no cost to the end user 

We can achieve this by taking waste products out of landfills and using them in the production process 

Discover the EcoReef: A Haven for Biodiversity

Picture a bundle of twisted branches and rocks, all bound tightly together. Now, imagine several of these bundles stacked together. What you have is a bio-diverse haven, a sanctuary for various species of flora and fauna. This is the essence of an EcoReef.

EcoReefs are accessible to everyone around the globe at no cost. By sharing this knowledge, we can collectively contribute to the preservation of our precious waterways.

The Composition of an EcoReef

At its core, an EcoReef is a compilation of organic materials. Twisted branches, rocks, and rubble are bound together using a durable binder. This structure forms a protective ‘cave’, safeguarding flora and fauna from their inception through their juvenile stage until they become self-sufficient.

Here’s how it works:

  • Twisted branches and organic materials interlock to create a meshed surface. This provides a platform for living organisms to adhere to.
  • Rocks are used to weigh down the branches, ensuring stability.
  • Binders are used to keep the rocks and branches together until nature takes over.
  • Individual EcoReefs can interlock with others, creating a thriving enclave for biodiversity.

The Importance of EcoReefs

Our natural landscapes have been drastically altered due to various factors. Sloping lands have been cleared, leading to water ‘slides’ that erode everything in their path, carrying debris to the water’s edge and beyond.

However, we can reverse the effects of erosion, land degradation, and loss of fish habitat by:

  • Implementing terrace farming on slopes,
  • Encouraging seepage through root fissures to retain rainwater underground,
  • Strategically creating dams that do not affect catchment areas, and
  • Reintroducing bends in rivers to promote aquaculture.
