A Average Working Person Spent 90% of His/Her Time at Indoor (Home/Office/Other) . So it's Our First Priority to Increase Our Indoor Air Quality Than Outdoor. Your Air May be Your Silent & Invisible Killer If You Don't Treat it Well. We are Always Surrounded by a Plenty of Volatile Air Pollutants More Than You Think. Main Indoor Air Pollutants are-(a) BENZENE ,(b) TRICHLORO ETHELENE, (c) FORMALDEHYDE (d) OZONE, (e)XYLENE & TOLUENE, (f)AMMONIA, (g)CARBON MONOXIDE & CARBON DIOXIDE, (h) DUST..etc.
The NASA Clean Air Study was a Project Led by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in Association with the Associated Landscape Contractors of America (ALCA) to Research Ways to Clean the Air in Space Stations. Its Results Suggested That,in Addition to Absorbing Carbon Dioxide and Releasing Oxygen Through Photosynthesis,Certain Common Indoor Plants may also Provide a Natural Way of Removing Toxic Agents such as Benzene,Formaldehyde and Trichloroethylene From the Air.
The First List of Air-Filtering Plants was Compiled by NASA and Published in 1989 as Part of the Study.Additional Lists were Later Published in a Book and Paper by B.C. Wolverton and Focus on the Removal of Specific Chemicals.
LIST OF TOP 12 AIR FILTERING PLANTS RECOMMENDED BY NASA ARE GIVEN BELOW:
NAME: ARECA PALM OR CHRYSALIDOCARPUS LUTESCENS ELIMINATES: FORMALDEHYDE,XYLENE,TOLUENE
