Climate change is threatening coasts globally due to sea level rise as well as coral reefs dying. Current methods for coastal protection using either sand, rock or concrete are costly and have a high carbon footprint. In moving towards a global carbon-neutral or carbon-negative society, new methods of coastal defences will be required. The ELB works with nature and is the lowest carbon footprint and lowest cost option for coastal protection, beach restoration and beach erosion control. An additional positive benefit of the ELB is that it fosters biodiversity and establishes a new marine eco-system.
