A start-up company called Green City Solutions has developed 4m high vertical plant walls with moss, called CityTrees. These moss installations feed on dirty air; they filter CO2, NOx and dust pollution and convert them to their own biomass. The company aims to tackle one of the biggest problems for people living in cities worldwide – air pollution. Every CityTree reduces local air pollution in a proximity until 50m by up to one third.
