Technology that offers 275 times the air-cleaning capability of a single tree has arrived in London.

CityTree is now in place on the corner of Air Street and Glasshouse Street, near Piccadilly Circus.

Created by German firm Green City Solutions, the device uses a combination of mosses and plants to remove harmful particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide from the air.

The installation has a built-in watering and IoT monitoring system that maintains and measures the performance of the living parts.

Property business The Crown Estate worked with Westminster City Council and cleantech company Evergen Systems, exclusive UK supplier of CityTree, to bring the technology to London.

James Cooksey, director for Central London at The Crown Estate, said: "As one of central London’s major landowners, we want to play our role in improving London’s air quality to ensure our city remains a brilliant place for everyone who lives, works and visits here.
