Thermostat mat


The Rural Development Administration said yesterday it has developed a so-called “Green Mat” that helps lower urban air temperatures by 3 degrees Celsius (37.4 Fahrenheit) during a heat wave by absorbing carbon dioxide and heat. The plants are set out on a blanket-like textile pot. The Green Mat can be installed on walls, the administration said, helping to cut the temperature of the surface and surrounding air. At 30 degrees Celsius, the temperature of a building covered by the green mats was 15 degrees Celsius, according to the administration.
