*Emerging company and RISE winner.

Introducing RAFT: Bioretention Made Simple RAFT intercepts stormwater runoff in urban environments where space is limited, and retrofits are difficult. We’ve made urban raingardens quick and easy to install by simplifying the structure holding it. InfraSGA is developing green infrastructure that is attainable by all and feasible for wide market adoption. The challenge is creating a product suitable for a range of site conditions, without need for specialty contractors, and cost-effective for wide adoption. Our debut product RAFT makes green stormwater infrastructure effective within tough urban environments like streetscapes, plazas, and parking lots. Designed to be installed by a small crew of three, the system is perfect for rapid deployment by a public works department using basic construction knowledge. RAFT provides our cities and towns more opportunities to try green stormwater solutions that reduce deadly floods and protect our natural waterway resources.

Ron Gorton, Golden Oyster Marine Services

We were moving and installing reef modules in record time. Installation of Natrx’s ExoForms is a straightforward process where everyone is able to work together quickly, safely, and efficiently.

Natrx has gone above and beyond for us. With their Natrx Assess capability it’s unbelievable what they can do—From providing an in-depth, ten-year history of site conditions, to understanding exactly where to place reefs for maximum impact at minimal cost.

Wayne Savage, Senior Engineer, Bay Design Group

We started with a plan for a traditional stone breakwater and the project cost was out of reach. Natrx put together an approach that was not only cost effective but also enhanced the look of the shoreline while protecting it from very large storms.

You have rock – that everyone has always thought was the be-all, end-all – and then you get this new product from Natrx and it outperforms rock in big storms.

Lewie Lawrence, Executive Director, Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission

By working with companies like Natrx, we can offer more efficient technologies and design more effective solutions that are also cost effective. To be viable in the flood mitigation space, new solutions can’t be costly. The solution has to match the pocketbook.

The speed with which we can address coastal issues with Natrx versus having to pile up rocks is a significant advantage. Our contractor was able to deploy 80 feet per day of custom Natrx ExoForms weighing 800-plus pounds each. It’s unheard of to be able to protect that much shoreline that quickly.

Natrx is easy to work with because they’ve been in the space longer than other companies and have the practical experience required to tackle all the challenges associated with addressing these issues.

Natrx is a Recognized Leader:

Natrx founders have over twenty publications and five issued patents for advanced nature-based coastal protection, and have deployed over 50,000 tons of biogenic living shoreline solutions in the past 15 years.

Our approach has led to meaningful work with some of the biggest names in infrastructure protection and sustainability science:
