Green City Solutions

Green City Solutions addresses the global problem of air pollution by combining a special, vertical installed moss culture with Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology. The product, called the “CityTree”, combines specific plants that eat particulate matter (PM), nitrogen dioxide and ozone – offsetting 240t of CO2e/year in total. Each unit has the same effect as up to 275 urban trees, but requires 99% less space. The construction contains sensors collecting environmental and climatic data, to regulate and control the unit and measure its real-time impact. Thanks to solar panels and rain water retention systems, the unit requires only a few hours of maintenance per year.
