Biodegradable mussle structure

Bureau Waardenburg, Rodenburg Biopolymers and GEA 2H Water Technologies have developed a biodegradable structure specifically for use in the improvement of habitats. In contrast to many other bio-plastics, it undergoes complete breakdown without the need for composting agents. Its original application was as a structure for the recovery of musselbeds and oyster beds. In addition, several other applications in the area of water purification, sewerage treatment, aquaculture, soil aeration, reclamation and the protection of coasts and sandbanks have become apparent.
