BioHaven technology is successfully used to protect and restore sensitive coastlines

Protection and restoration of sensitive coastal areas is a key use of BioHaven systems. The proven wave-dampening qualities of the BioHaven Matrix allows it to function as a breakwater, absorbing energy and protecting the shoreline from further damage. Its ability to act as a sediment trap enables marsh grasses to be re-established and thrive in areas where they have disappeared. The projects covered by this case study have been hugely successful, and have garnered a Gulf Guardian award for Shell Oil, a key proponent of this technology.
