Can artificial coral reefs help fight climate change?
The short answer is yes. Enbridge and Friends of RGV Reef are supporting a study led by the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley to determine the carbon capture potential of artificial reefs as a possible tool to combat climate change. Early data from the study shows that the reef is capturing CO2 in some significant portions. The groundbreaking research – which is still underway – centers on RGV Reef, a 1,650-acre artificial reef, the largest and most complex artificial reef off the Texas coast.
