CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Researchers at the University of Virginia say they are finding new ways to reduce carbon emissions.

Researchers say they’ve found a method to build walls of plants through 3D printing soil structures and seeds.

“Using local materials and using a green system would help the environment,” Professor Ehsan Baharlou said.

Baharlou says researchers used soil and red clay from Virginia.

They hope to see the plant walls they created on UVA Grounds for students to see.
