Marine-Grade Concrete Reinforced with Recycled Plastic Fibres to Build Eco-Friendly Seawall by Volvo

Volvo has taken an innovative, creative approach to create a living seawall along the coast of Sydney’s harbour.

According to the scientists in Sydney, Australia, the amount of plastic garbage in the ocean is massive and removing it all simply is not an easy task. So, to get rid of this problem, Volvo has taken an innovative, creative approach to create a living seawall along the coast of Sydney’s harbour.

Volvo

The company has teamed up with the Sydney Institute of Marine Science and Reef Design Lab for designing this 3-D printed seawall. According to Volvo, the Living Seawall is designed to rebuild the structure of native mangrove trees and offer a home for marine life.

The company further claims that the Seawall will also help biodiversity and attract filter-feeding organisms that will improve the water quality by filtering out pollutants such as heavy metals. By adding the tiles in the structure, the firm plans to change an artificial structure into a potential marine habitat.

Volvo

The goal of Volvo is not just to create a Living Seawall and Volvo Ocean Race, but the firm is also in the process of eliminating all single-use plastics from offices, events and cafeterias and replacing them with green, sustainable options by the end of the year.

Along with this, the company is also planning to launch 1 million electric cars by 2025.  They emphasize on designing cars whose manufacturing operations are carbon neutral so that they don’t have a negative impact on the environment.
