Interior Landscape Plants for Indoor Air Abatement
Previously, preliminary data on the ability of a group of common indoor plants to remove organic chemical from indoor air was presented. The group of plants chosen for the study was determined by joint agreement between NASA and the Associated Landscape Contractors of America. The chemicals chosen for the study were benzene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde. The results show the plants can play a major role in removal or organic compounds from indoor air.
