New State-of-the-Art Biorock® Regeneration Project

Posted 7th December

Dr. Thomas J. Goreau and Thomas Sarkisian recently visited Velaa Private Island to spearhead installation of the new Biorock reefs - an innovative technology developed by Global Coral Reef Alliance and Blue Regeneration.

As part of Velaa's coral reef restoration programme, the initiative will have benefits for generations to come, both beneath and above the surface. Biorock® is an electrical reef regeneration technology which produces natural building materials in the sea via safe extremely low voltage currents. The slow trickle charge makes corals more resistant to stress and accelerates growth, settlement, and survival, of all marine organisms, increasing the biodiversity of the reef as well as protecting it from future bleaching.
