New Living Walls Use 'Biological Concrete' to Reduce CO2

by Adele Peters

January 6, 2013

This isn't just a way to make cities look better, but it can actually help reduce greenhouse gases. The walls capture and store CO2, and insulate the building, helping reduce air conditioning and heating inside. 

The concrete hasn't been released on the market yet, but the researchers say they already have commercial interest.
