SHIFT Invest supports biobased innovation in concrete sector 
SHIFT Invest has provided a seed investment to Green Basilisk, a TU Delft spin-out that has developed a self-healing agent that can be added to repair products or virgin concrete. The agent contains specific micro-organisms that start producing limestone when in contact with oxygen and water, creating an autonomous repair system.
The innovation is now applied in a bassin of Havenbedrijf Rotterdam, in a cooperation between Basilisk and BAM Infra. Click here for a short movie about the project.
