Jamie Hailstone writes in Forbes about one company that is using moss to create clean air.
- While it is viewed as an eyesore by many, moss could play an important role in cleaning our air.
- German-based Green City Solutions is looking to capitalize on moss’ potential by creating a series of moss-based filters that can be installed in urban areas.
- The filters work by sucking in polluted city air and pressing it through the moss which is retrofitted with AI sensors to measure air quality in the area.
- Private sector innovation is creating a cleaner environment.
