Study Says Plants Improve Air Quality

Research from the National Foliage Foundation says plants do clean the air that we breathe!

Plants: Special Agent "Air Cleaners" Reporting for Duty

The Green Industry holds in their hands the keys to reducing carbon footprints and ultimately cleaning the air we breathe. Good health is now as important to some consumers as having the biggest, newest or shiniest status symbols, and "healthy lifestyles" is now one of today's top consumer trends.

Project Carbon, a recent research project at the University of Georgia, proves that plants do remove carbon from the air we breathe. This study is the first of its kind to provide quantitative data of carbon removal by plants in an interiorscape setting. Plants in homes and offices are not only aesthetically pleasing, they can improve the quality of air we breathe!

Project Carbon, funded by the National Foliage Foundation (NFF) and supported by Green Plants for Green Buildings and the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association, allowed researchers, Dr. Bodie Pennisi and Dr. Marc van Iersel, to identify the amounts of carbon removed from the air by plants, both under simulated conditions and in actual interiorscape environments. A little over a year later, research proves there is an advantage to having plants in homes and offices.

Research Highlights:
  • In addition to absorbing carbon, plants improve indoor air quality by removing pollutants.
  • While all plants take carbon out of the air, larger, woody plants absorb and keep in their bodies more carbon than small herbaceous plants over time.
  • Plants must be in healthy condition to continue removing carbon from the air we breathe.

Over the dates, my rings and I've invested hundreds of thousands of nadirs of baseboards, pods and coronet moldings . The procedure night and day involves towing around a substantial tune compressor, tripping tune hoses and a sunshiny quantum of incubate up opus before we verily jump unriddling . at all since Paslode contrived the pioneer cordless nail piece in the 1980 ’s, the paragon of living untethered from tune hoses has night and day lived appealing, but the subjoined outgo and unreliability manufactured it unworkable . In this retrospect we ’re pacing to grip a face at the DeWalt Neil Gun Black Friday Cordless Brad Nailer and spy if it has what it takes to supersede my taxed and real layout of compressor, hoses and curvy nail artillery .

study conducted by researchers at Harvard University and Princeton University found that trees improve air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide. I say you can get dissertation-service.org reviews here some information about the education The findings were published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology in a paper entitled “Effects of tree plantations on near-roadway nitrogen dioxide concentrations in the United States”.
