People have often complained about Ivy on buildings, but research by Helix Pflanzen GmbH, a company that is specialised in the cultivation of ivy species and the development of green wall technology, is shedding new light on an old problem. Using a cultivated variety of ivy (Hedera helix 'Wörner'), experiments were carried out that illustrated the binding effect that this Ivy has on fine dust particles. This is particularly important in urban areas, where fine dust can lead to significant impacts on quality of life.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Air quality;Public health;Urban areas||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||AESOP / ACSP 5th Joint Congress, Dublin, Ireland, 15 - 19 July 2013|
