On September 29, 2017 alchemia-nova presented the functional green wall panel at the European Researchers’ Night at “Technologisches Gewerbemuseum” in Vienna. Researchers from universities, research institutes and private companies contributed to the transfer of scientific knowledge to students in 20 workshops and with over 50 booths.

Among the 3.500 visitors, the audience appreciated the possibility to talk to scientists and innovators face to face, while especially young students enjoyed being a researcher for a day. At alchemia-nova’s interactive booth, visitors were invited to mix artificial greywater with soap, shower gel, deodorant and so on and then poor the mix in the green facade structure. The panel simulated the water purification process and enthused the audience. The team of alchemia-nova explained how plants and microoranisms in a green façade are able to purify domestic and industrial waste water which can then be used to flush toilets or water the garden.

The Green INSTRUCT project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 723825.
