Bridging development and sustainability

Bio-active Walls

Bio-active wall elements are designed to induce rapid plant wall coverage of inland buildings. Green plant coverage significantly improves urban landscape, provides cleaner and healthier air, and reduces the ecological footprint of urban development.

The physical and chemical properties of the wall substrates strongly influence its capability to support and enhance growth. ECOncrete®'s bio-active wall induces natural growth of wall clinging plants, endolithic algae, lichens and mosses. Its high complexity and porosity create moist niches that support flora, without the need for complex soil systems.
