Title: Biowall’s Impact on Indoor Air Quality and Energy

Purdue University's team is studying how to improve indoor air quality by installing plants in a home's HVAC system. Most people know potted house plants can clean air indoors, leading to a healthier and happier home but this team is expanding the idea by growing plants in the home's air filter. By studying the improvement in indoor air quality the team can also relate the results to energy reduction, making the home more sustainable.

Challenge Area(s): Built Environment, Energy
