Ecological Pile Encapsulation

ECOncrete®'s ecological pile encapsulation substitutes standard concrete pile encapsulation. It is applied to repair timber piles, used in piers and jetties, since timber piles deteriorate after being exposed for long periods of time to marine burrowers, such as worms and mussels.

In addition to the necessary constructive support and protection, ecological pile encapsulation creates a new and productive habitat for marine plants and animals.
