Using live plants to stabilize and clean up an environment or solve environmental problems is the exclusive feature of so-called phytotechnologies. These new "green" approaches make it possible to fight against noise and water pollution, or to rehabilitate contaminated and abandoned soils. The particular expertise related to these technologies is also illustrated by scientists from the Jardin botanique involved in the design and implementation of The Pathway to Phytotechnologies.

The route provides for the creation of a series of stations on the Jardin botanique site (see image), each with a particular phytotechnology, filter marsh, green roof, rain garden, etc. Each of these stations will, at the same time, concretely solve a problematic that the Jardin botanique faces, while integrating educational elements intended to explain the plants' functioning and role within the installation in question.

Nature will not be idle until 2024!

Between 2019 and 2024, visitors will attend the deployment of the seven stations of the Pathway to phytotechnologies.
