Purifier reef / Marine ecosystem

Purifier reef
Purifier reef

Purifier reef is a modular structure for the restoration of marine ecosystems.
This product is designed to protect creatures that have lost their homes due to the death of coral reefs.Also from the red tide can be prevented.
As the material of the product, we upcycle the shells that are discarded indiscriminately, one of the sources of environmental pollution.
Oysters and shells can significantly lower the concentration of phosphoric acid, one of the causes of red tide, and create a modular structure made of lime material similar to coral.
It improves the environmental conditions of living things and becomes a temporary home.
