The goal of the project is to develop new products for green roofs and facades, to improve the properties of substrates and grass-herb mixtures, and to quantify the environmental benefits, especially using the example of an industrial area, and at the same time systematically solve the cycle of utility water, based on the acquired and tested scientific knowledge. In this way, it contributes to the achievement of goals in the field of climate change mitigation, water management, improvement of microclimatic conditions and the fulfillment of sustainable construction goals. Industrial and logistics sites on large areas of the territory have not yet been the subject of such a comprehensive investigation. The users of the results will be manufacturing companies, designers and building investors. The quantification of environmental benefits is the subject of the project solution, while emphasis is placed on economic efficiency.
