Vegetation systems in combination with biofiltration processes are emerging processes that are expected to have beneficial effects on the improvement of indoor air quality (IAQ). Common indoor plants may provide a valuable strategy to avoid rising levels of indoor air pollution. In an active vegetation system air cleaning rates may be significantly higher than in passive vegetation systems using active fan-assisted hydroponics technology, which draws the air through the root rhizomes of the plants. However, to evaluate the real effect of active green systems on IAQ it is important to create a reliable experimental setup and protocol regarding not only components of the prototype but also the methods for analysis and evaluation.
