Moonee Ponds Central
Created for Moonee Ponds Central, this ‘smog-eating’ mural is all about sustainability, happy gardens and a healthy environment. The mural will feature paint that cleans the air by absorbing CO2 (just like planting a tree!) So how does the paint work? Calcium, water and carbon dioxide (CO2) react or “carbonate.” This reaction turns the calcium hydroxide into calcium carbonate, otherwise known as lime stone, ultimately locking in atmospheric carbon dioxide. Once this reaction has taken place, the captured CO2 cannot be released back into the environment.
