Sea Shell Composite

We were in Caen at the beginning of July for another BRIDGE gateway event hosted by ESITCaen (Ecole Superieure d’Ingenieurs des Travaux de la Construction de Caen)  for the  Eco Construction Day  and the International Forum on Incubation. Dr Mohammed Boutouil showed us around the labs and we were delighted to be given a sample of this seashell composite. Developed from the waste products of the seafood industry, the advantages of this new material are its permeability. As potential applications could be for paving, and car parks use of this material would address issues with existing materials where run off is a significant issue.
