«The emission between the red and the infrared of the coating – says Nicola Armaroli of CNR – basically reproduces the behaviour of plants. We’ve just finished to test a surface of 100 sqm in Grosseto area. The scans were conducted by a research plane (CzechGlobe, Czech Republic), equipped with spectrometers, projected for this purpose. But, when the satellite FLEX will go into the orbit, in 2023, then we could need coated surfaces of more than 1 square km dimension».
