Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Energy Consumption of Coastal Ecosystem Enhancement Programme through Sustainable Artificial Reefs in Galicia
[Abstract] The principle of sustainability should condition a project in which artificial reefs are being installed to protect biodiversity as well as enhance costal ecosystems. In particular, this principle should be taken ...
An Economic Analysis of An Innovative Floating Offshore Wind Platform Built with Concrete: The SATH® Platform
[Abstract] The goal of this work is to carry out an economic analysis of a novel floating offshore wind structure, of which the main material is concrete: the SATH® platform. It takes a step forward in floating marine wind ...
Installing Green Artificial Reefs: A Sustainable Challenge
(European Association for the Development of Renewable Energies, Environment and Power Quality (EA4EPQ),, 2021-09)
[Abstract] Green Artificial Reefs (GARs) are marine structures to exploit sea resources in a sustainable way (produce food resources, improve the tourism, etc.). They should be installed on the seabed, process that is ...
Assessment of the Materials Employed in Green Artificial Reefs for the Galician Estuaries in Terms of Circular Economy
[Abstract] To exploit marine resources in a sustainable way, efficient management systems must be used such as green artificial reefs (GARs). These reefs are mostly made up of renewable and organic materials. When adopting ...
Erosive Degradation Study of Concrete Augmented by Mussel Shells for Marine Construction
[Abstract] This work proposes a green material for artificial reefs to be placed in Galicia (northwest Spain) taking into account the principles of circular economy and sustainability of the ecosystem. New concrete ...
Application of residuals from purification of bivalve molluscs in Galician to facilitate marine ecosystem resiliency through artificial reefs with shells – One generation
[Abstract] The seas and oceans of the planet provide a wide range of essential resources. However, marine ecosystems are undergoing severe degradation due to the unsustainable exploitation and consumption patterns of the ...
