A research team found that replacing quarried limestone with biologically grown limestone, a natural process that some species of calcareous microalgae complete through photosynthesis (just like growing coral reefs), creates a net carbon neutral way to make portland cement.

Study demonstrates that restoration of coral reefs and mangroves can be a cost-effective solution for flood reduction since they act as natural barriers to waves and storm surges.
