Ecobubble is a new way of designing green areas (urban gardens, hanging green roofs, agricultural land, etc.) aimed at optimizing the management of green areas and reducing local pollutants. The Ecobubbles take advantage of the Phytoremediation (science that uses plants to purify the environment) and improve its efficiency by combining it with the specific parameters of the place. Specific pollutants, microclimate, location, type, structure and customization are just some of the inputs used to select the most suitable vegetation to maximize the removal of pollutants and minimize emissions of volatile compounds (VOC).
For the design we have developed an exclusive, continuously updated database, which currently contains more than 6,000 plant species adaptable to numerous climatic, environmental and structural conditions. The knowledge that our team has acquired, through the study of numerous scientific researches, allows us to select from this Database the plants that can best be used for the absorption, removal or mitigation of local pollutants.
The green areas are managed by a home automation system equipped with artificial intelligence, which analyzes the data received from the sensors, from the IT system and calculates the minimum amount of water to be supplied to obtain the maximum degree of plant luxuriance. The peculiar technology of Ecomotica together with the IT system are connected to an app that allows you to automatically display, on a map, the data relating to the garden (irrigation, temperature, humidity, lighting, etc.) and to the quality of the environment (PM10, VOC , NOx, CO2, etc.)
Thanks to the plants it is possible to reduce the air pollutants present in our cities. Depending on your situation, we will choose the most suitable species.
To improve the quality of life in anthropized environments, we have chosen the most advanced technology and have adapted it to the ecological context.
Lighting will enhance your roof garden, making it usable at any time of day or night.
To cultivate lush plants without wasting water it is necessary to take the utmost care in the irrigation and water management process.
Your Ecobubble will be completely self-sufficient from an energy consumption standpoint thanks to properly sized photovoltaic panels.
They are the “sensory organs” of Ecobubble: they transmit information regarding the atmospheric quality of the garden.
By creating a dynamic database and website it is possible to support the dissemination and analysis of micro-localized environmental data.
Green Big Data
Collecting and monitoring environmental data enables us to study and quantify the progress made in fighting pollution.

GET TO KNOW OUR TEAM OF PROFESSIONALS
The ambition and innovation of the project require a considerable degree of complexity in the research, development and design of the Ecobubble. From this emerges the need to use planners and developers experienced in their reference sectors (engineering, physics, architecture, computer science, geology and urban botany).
