A 400-plant colony vertically mounted on a 5-storey wall over a duct that “inhales” air so that microorganisms living on the roots can feed on pollutants in the air, acting as a natural air filter.
Cleans the indoor air of some pollutants.
Toxic emissions (VOC and formaldehyde)
The Centre for Sustainable Development is aiming for four LEED credits for low-emitting materials: adhesives and sealants, paints and coatings, flooring systems, and composite wood and agrifiber products. The low gloss paint used in the Centre contains no more than 50 g/l of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Conventional paints of a comparable type can contain four times that amount.
Emission reduction at the source for many of the products responsible for indoor air pollution.
