Waste plastic to become artificial reefs

DUBAI – Artificial reefs made from recycled plastic could be the answer to sustaining marine life along Dubai’s coastline, following the success of prototypes implemented in tide-damaged areas in Fujairah.

These reefs are to be placed in the ocean, in lieu of the actual coral reefs in the Arabian Gulf that have disappeared during the past decade of construction, land reclamation and natural weather fluctuations. The reefs, a first in the world, according to its creators, are placed in accordance to the Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) guidelines in a marine protected area.
