Urban buses have small surfaces and the plant coverings that we can put on them will surely have little effect on what we need to accomplish in terms of the overall metabolism of the urban system if we were to compare their capacity to remove the carbon from the significant amount of emissions produced from people and machines. However, every green area we can add counts in the overall balance and the idea has the importance of setting an example. In our country, green roofs are virtually unknown and a bus equipped in the right way is living, moving propaganda of the possibilities of this kind of greening. For this reason, I find the idea fascinating and worth considering: the techniques to green our urban spaces exist but we just have to spread them and show that they are viable.
PhytoKinetic has been designed and created to pass all the control and safety tests for public transport required by the European directives.
We here at PhytoKinetic provide consulting on how to get green-roofed buses to circulate while fulfilling all the safety regulations in place.
The perforated stainless steel structure ensures that water is easily evacuated and never becomes stagnant. The enclosed periphery defines the roof and fits any shape while respecting emergency exits, antennas and other elements (air conditioning, filters, etc.).
WE HAVE BEEN PUSHING NATURE AWAY FROM OUR LIVES FOR TOO LONG, FORGETTING THAT WE COME FROM IT AND WILL RETURN TO IT.
