#337. The world’s first concrete to help the fishing ground grow!

      Unprecedented environmental activated concrete is friendly for surroundings and helps to develop a fishing ground!

Environmental activated concrete is the concrete that contains a sort of amino acid called arginine. By mixing arginine, the concrete becomes friendly for both environments and many forms of life. If the conventional coastal protection blocks will be replaced by the company’s environmental activated concrete, arginine in the blocks gradually melts and sticks on the surface, which quickens the growth of algae around the blocks. Algae are food for various creatures like abalones, turban shells and sea cucumbers in the ocean, also food for fish like sweetfish in the river. As a result, it helps to grow a rich fishing ground.

Comments from Organizer

It is an epoch-making technique to raise fish when the protection of fish is demanded worldwide. The concrete may be a savior for saving coasts and rivers, because it protects nature and raises lives in water, while protecting the bank of the sea and the river.
