Plant champion: air purification of indoor spaces
Which plant is the best at purifying indoor air? In the Plant champion project, we want to explore which types of plants perform the best.
In this project we want to explore which types perform the best in the existing plant assortment. Which plant, even ones that are not houseplants, is a champion at purifying air? We do this by generating knowledge about the working mechanism of air purification by plants. We have a three-step plan to follow:
1. We examine how the mechanism of air purification by plants works.
2. Then we test the existing plant assortment against the new criteria.
3. We produce a plant-treatment advisory report to maximise the performance of plants.
