Science Provides Answers to VOCs
Nearly everyone knows that plants absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. But in 1989, scientists at NASA discovered that some plants can do so much more.
According to the original report, “Interior Landscape Plants for Indoor Air Pollution Abatement,” many common household plants can remove chemicals like benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene from the air. And who knows more about the importance of keeping indoor air clean and safe than NASA?
Since that time, further studies have shown that they can also remove other dangerous substances and gases from our air, like xylene, ammonia, and methylbenzene.
