WELT: “Warum ausgerechnet Moos die deutschen Innenstädte retten soll”

“Und wer sich für einen Cappuccino niederlässt, sollte das mit Atemmaske tun, denn er wird eingenebelt.” – Nein, das beschriebene Szenario stammt nicht aus China oder Indien. Gemeint ist Frankfurt am Main. Doch nicht nur im Zentrum der hessischen Metropole “wurden bis in 70 Meter Höhe Feinstaub und Stickstoffdioxid gemessen” und “Vorgaben der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) […] weit überschritten.” Der Artikel der WELT informiert außerdem über die Auswirkungen von Luftverschmutzung und “Moos als „Mikrofaser-Staubtuch“”. Auch unser Lösungsansatz des CityTrees wird thematisiert. Klickt auf das Bild und lest mal rein!

Tagesspiegel: “Mit Moos gegen Mief”

“Sie sind keine zehn Zentimeter groß, uralt und unscheinbar – und doch könnten Moose Großstädte von Feinstaub befreien” – in “Mit Moos gegen Mief” berichtet der Tagesspiegel über die jüngst in Stuttgart installierte Mooswand, die erstaunlichen Leistungen von Moos – und auch unseren CityTree. Bereits “2007 entdeckte der inzwischen verstorbene Bonner Forscher Jan-Peter Frahm die besonderen Eigenschaften der auch als Bryophyten bezeichneten Pflanzen.” Dazu zählen u.a. die nicht vorhandene wasser- und schmutzabweisende Wachsschicht der Moos-Blättchen, die enorme Blattoberfläche und Wasseraufnahmekapazität.
