CCell is on a mission to combat coastal erosion by working with nature to rapidly grow beautiful living reefs. Having secured initial clients in Meixco, Spain and Israel, and installed a 120m reef in Mexico, CCell is ready to scale operations and transform the coastal protection industry.
Coral reefs are great natural barriers, reducing wave impact by 97% on average. They are a vital ecosystem that is under threat from climate change, 80% of reefs in the Caribbean have died and globally 99% will die by 2040 unless we act.
Globally c.200m people and $173bn of built capital rely on coral reefs for protection. Without reefs, coastal communities are vulnerable to flooding, loss of land and damage to buildings & infrastructure. Quintana Roo recently spent ~£7.7M/mile adding sand to beaches, with 6-8% washed away within 1 year.
CCell reefs provide long-term protection, boost marine ecosystems, and create dive sites. Our reefs use an electrified steel structure to grow rock. Our web-connected electronics optimise rock growth with a low carbon footprint. CCell reefs are cheaper than traditional coastal defences and grow faster than in nature.
We have been developing this technology since 2013 using £2m+ in government funding. Last year we secured our first clients and installed a full-scale 120m long reef in Yucatan, Mexico. This has led to strategic partnerships with AxisIMA® and Terre Armee, four further installations and a sales pipeline for 1km of new reef.
This funding will help us deliver on our project pipeline and scale the business through a combination of regional partnerships and global sales and marketing.
