Effect of Removing PM-10 by several Indoor Plants


The experiment is performed to investigate whether plants can remove particle pollutants of PM-10 level floating in the air. The plants produced anion amounts were measured and the time to reduce 1/3 of smoke particle pollutant was also measured. Compared to the air cleaner, the quantity of plant to have the same indoor purification ability to eliminate particle pollutant is calculated. In the result, plants can remove 29-36 % tobacco particle pollutant in 60 minutes and it is identified as 1/13- 1/17 of air cleaner efficiency.
