Thursday, April 15, 2021. 2:00 PM. Webinar: Wetland Restoration Without the Use of Plastics. Malenthe Teunis, BESE-products. Sponsored by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. More information here.
Growing recognition of the importance of nature based flood defense for coastal protection has created a need to restore degraded coastal wetlands. BESE-products provides the means to restore these ecosystems in a sustainable manner. Nowadays most restoration projects use plastics or concrete as a kick-start agent. Unfortunately both products remain in the system and “pollute” the environment after restoration. BESE designs and sells products that are 100% biodegradable. By providing a temporary kick-start agent, that restores an ecosystem and degrades over time, only a natural system will be left behind. In this webinar we will discuss a few of our projects in mangrove, oyster reef, salt marsh and SAV restoration. We will explain the design and failures and successes of our products and projects. The goal of the webinar is to give you an insight in what kind of biodegradable solutions exist and how you can successfully apply them in the field.
