According to a new research , adding plants and trees to the landscapes near factories and other pollution sources could reduce air pollution by an average of 27 percent The study shows that plants – not technologies – may also be cheaper options for cleaning the air near a number of industrial sites, roadways, power plants, commercial boilers and oil and gas drilling sites

In fact, researchers found that in 75 percent of the US counties analyzed, it was cheaper to use plants to mitigate air pollution than it was to add technological interventions – things like smokestack scrubbers – to the sources of pollution The study, published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, found that nature-based solutions to air pollution might, in many cases, be better than technology at combating air pollution The analysis found that for one specific sector – industrial boilers – technology is cheaper at cleaning the air than ecosystem upgrades And for the manufacturing industry – a broad sector – both ecosystems and technology could offer cost savings, depending on the type of factory
