When we say Vertical garden enhances the air quality, the greater part of us need to know how it is finished?
All things considered, the living dividers utilize CO2 that is available around them expelling VOC’s from the air. Living dividers retain CO2 and emanate oxygen subsequently enhancing the air quality. Once the nature of air is enhanced we have a quieting impact on people accordingly enabling them to enhance their work effectiveness.
Living Walls demonstrate a positive effect on people that can be estimated from their inclination change and smoothness.
1.0 Vertical Gardens
Benefits of Vertical garden
- Reduces urban heat island effect and smog
- Cleans outside air of pollutants and dust and offsets the carbon footprint of people and fuel emissions
- Cleans interior air space by removing VOCs and other harmful toxins like benzene and formaldehyde
- Acts as a sound proofing barrier
- Soil and plants are a natural filter that can clean the water that flows through the wall
- Insulates and cools the building envelope, as well as protecting it from the harmful elements
- Creates habitats for birds and beneficial insects, increasing biodiversity
- Can be used for growing food in urban settings, creating sustainable and local control of food sources
- Increases real estate value
- Increases foot traffic in retail spaces
- Speeds recovery time for patients through biophilia
- Helps children with ADHD focus better in school
- Reduces absenteeism in the workplace and boosts employee morale
- Qualifies for LEED certification points from USGBC
2.0 Biogas Plants
Biogas typically refers to a mixture of different gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste. Biogas is a renewable energy source.
Biogas can be produced by anaerobic digestion with methanogen or anaerobic organisms, which digest material inside a closed system, or fermentation of biodegradable materials. This closed system is called an anaerobic digester, biodigester or a bioreactor
Benefits of Biogas
Considerable environmental advantages – less emission of the greenhouse gasses methane, CO2, and nitrous oxide.
Protection of subsoil water causes improved nitrogen exploitation reducing leaching and thereby prevents drinking water contamination.
Biogas is a green energy source in form of electricity and heat for the local grid.
Environmentally friendly recirculation of organic waste from industry and households.
Fewer odor inconveniences when spreading slurry on the fields – fermented slurry smells considerably less than normal slurry and the smell decreases faster.
- Plants absorb fermented slurry better, increasing the yield on the fields.
- Reduced costs for artificial fertilizer.
3.0 Urban Forests using
Developing Human population has prompted expanded weight on GAIA, our Mother Earth, in an extraordinary way, bringing about decreased green cover and lessening woodlands over the world. Experts recommend that a territory proportionate to 500 SqKms of timberland is being cut once a day to meet human need of cultivating, kindling and other business necessities.
Such fast deforestation without sufficient reforestation has resulted in habitat damage, biodiversity misfortune and aridity. It has unfavorable effects on bio sequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
Some facts about de-forestation & other statistics:
- About half of the world’s tropical forests have been cleared, according to the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
- Forests currently cover about 30 percent of the world’s landmass, according to National Geographic.
- The Earth loses 18.7 million acres of forests per year, which is equal to 27 soccer fields every minute, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
- It is estimated that 15 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions come from deforestation, according to the WWF.
- In 2016, global tree cover loss reached a record of 73.4 million acres (29.7 million hectares), according to the University of Maryland
Rapid deforestation has caused following Effects / Disadvantages
Barometrical change: Deforestation is a giver to global warming, and is frequently referred to as one of the real reasons for the enhanced greenhouse impact.
Tropical deforestation is in charge of around 20% of world ozone-depleting substance discharges.
Hydrological: The water cycle is additionally influenced by deforestation. Trees extract groundwater through their underlying foundations and discharge it into the air.
Loss of species: Seventy percent of the world’s plants and animals live in forests and are losing their habitats to deforestation, according to National Geographic. Loss of habitat can lead to species extinction.
Water cycle: Trees are important to the water cycle. They absorb rainfall and produce water vapor that is released into the atmosphere. Trees also lessen the pollution in water.
Soil erosion: Tree roots anchor the soil. Without trees, the soil is free to wash or blow away, resulting in landslides in the countryside & flash floods in cities.
Life quality: Soil erosion can also lead to silt entering the lakes, streams and other water sources. This can decrease local water quality and contribute to poor health in populations in the area.
