Sustainable and Innovative solutions for water safety

Hillblock develops sustainable products for water security. The new innovative Grassblock is a green multilayered topcoat that increases the resilience to erosion, overtopping and the impact of waves. Current climate models show that sea levels are rising and that extreme weather events, like heavy rainfall and storms, become more frequent in the near future. There is a clear need to increase the resilience to flooding. With the use of Grassblock, slopes can easily be adapted to be protected against the dangers of flooding.
