    © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland. China has been the country which is suffering serious coastal erosion that primarily caused by the increase of hydrodynamic force and the unbalance between input and output sediment. Comparing with the traditional revetment, most of which were made of reinforced concrete, the ecological shoreline protection can prevent coastal erosion in an ecological method. In this article, a biodegradable coastline protection mat (BCP-mat) was proposed and different arrangement methods direct to various areas was presented to solve the problems such as high cost, complicated construction caused by existing ecological method. In the end, the existing technology problems and promotion difficulties was discussed in the perspective of design and management.
