US: AgroSci’s Aerogation green wall technology issued patent

The U.S. Patent Office has issued a patent for the Aerogation living wall technology from AgroSci, which boosts plants’ natural air-cleaning capacity by about 200 times.

Aerogation green walls cleanse indoor air without filters, sequestration or expensive, energy-hungry duct systems. A recent study by the University of Staffordshire in England found that exterior Aerogation green walls devour more than 60 percent of nitrogen dioxide, a poisonous byproduct of fossil fuel consumption.

“Receiving this patent marks a huge step forward for Aerogation and AgroSci,” CEO Chris Pianta said. “We have established exclusive legal right to this far-reaching and futuristic green technology. Aerogation promises to revolutionize HVAC by using nature’s own cleaning process to scrub indoor and outdoor air of pollutants and contaminates, including dangerous VOCs.”

“With this patent, AgroSci ascends into the top ranks of the green wall business,” said President Mark Prescott, who developed the technology. “Aerogation signals a sea change in HVAC, providing a green and clean method to rid indoor and outdoor air of contaminants. Our exclusive product leads the way into a new sustainable and environmentally friendly era of building management.”

Aerogation works by delivering air directly into the plants’ root systems, amplifying on an industrial scale their natural ability to break down toxins, chemicals, including dangerous VOCs, allergens and other impurities.

AgroSci projects include a three-story green wall on the façade of 1 Hotel Central Park in midtown Manhattan, large indoor and outdoor living walls at 1 Hotel South Beach in South Beach, Florida and substantial interior Aerogation installations at the Brooklyn J. Crew store and Gunther & Co. restaurant in Baltimore, Md.
