Mosses are the oldest land plants on earth and capable of amazing things. They bind fine dust, are antiseptic, antiviral and fungicidal; real all-rounders for air pollution control and health.
Specialised mosses bind and metabolise particles and gases that are harmful to the climate and health, such as soot, CO₂ or PAHs. The majority of the elements are metabolised directly or indirectly biodegraded by microorganisms and then converted into harmless biomass. Mosses are small sponges and can store enormous amounts of moisture and this makes them an ideal component in rainwater management. The water not only serves the vitality of the moss, but also cools the surrounding air noticeably through natural evaporation.
As pioneers in the use of moss, everything has always revolved around these inconspicuous plants. In the moss laboratory mosses are researched and qualified for cultivation. Under controlled conditions the super plants grow in the moss farm about 16 times faster than in nature.
Sustainability is also a top priority in the fully digitalised moss farm. The use of water, heat and electricity is monitored by sensors and optimally controlled. The mosses are robust and reusable after a treatment in the moss farm they can clean the air for another six months before they are returned to the farm.
