Moss in Architecture

Air Purification by Photosynthesis

34/2010

Naturally growing mosses are ideally suited to absorbing respirable dust that could otherwise be damaging to health. With their extremely large surface area they can combine electrostatically with dust particles and turn them into biomass through metabolic processes. In addition, organic parts of respirable dust are absorbed by bacteria which live on the moss. Xeroflor, in cooperation with Colbond, has now launched hard-wearing moss-carrying mats on the market. They can be used in many different situations and are particularly suitable for roadsides and noise insulation walls, but also for wall dividers or wall hangings – all for the benefit of air quality.
