Paris, December 15th, 2015 – GEOCORAIL, an innovative company specialized in the prevention of coastal erosion and the protection of marine structures, was present at the “Galerie des Solutions”, a tradeshow dedicated to low carbon emission solutions that took place besides the official COP21, from December 7th to December 9th.

The GEOCORAIL booth was visited by numerous participants to the COP21 who familiarized themselves with its electrochemical process which enables the in situ creation of a natural stone from sand and seawater minerals.

Visitors included delegations from various countries as well as:

· Dr. Kathryn D. Sullivan, NOAA administrator (US National Oceanic and Administration),
· Mrs. Jill Stein, Green Party candidate in the upcoming US presidential elections,
· H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco,
. Mr. Yoichi Suzuki, ambassador of Japan to France,
· Mr. Lefter Koka, Minister of Environment of Albania,
· Mr. Pierre-Henri Guignard, Secretary General of the COP21,
· Mr. Nicolas Hulot, president of the “Fondation pour la nature et l’homme”,
· Mr. Brice Lalonde, special UN advisor for sustainable development.


GEOCORAIL develops and commercializes innovative solutions to mitigate shore erosion and protect maritime coastal works and offshore structures. These solutions are based on an electrochemical process respectful of the environment that allows the in situ creation of a natural stone from minerals present at the site. The Geocorail® exhibits a high mechanical resistance and presents an aspect which allows it to blend into its surroundings. It also offers the advantage of sequestrating some of the carbon that is present in the oceans. The Geocorail® formation mechanism can also be used to trap and recover certain pollutants present in the marine environment, such as heavy metals. GEOCORAIL continues the development and optimization of its process for direct applications and is looking to partner with major players in maritime engineering for applications complementing existing engineering practices. GEOCORAIL was founded and advised by Truffle Capital in 2012 and is supported, since its creation, by the Holding Incubatrice “Commodities and Materials”.
