Reference cases


City trees: more and more cities using NOVIHUM®

City trees

  • Locations: Koblenz, Munich, Wuppertal, Dortmund, Cologne (Germany), etc
  • In collaboration with our partner Vulkatec
  • Rate of ca. 10 kg NOVIHUM per m³ of substrate
  • NOVIHUM releases nitrogen slowly, has no microplastics, presence of humus acts as “insurance” for the well-being of the trees




Extreme conditions need extreme measures: NOVIHUM

Rooftop greening
