The focus of this project is to determine from experiment if green walls have an effect on the pollution degree from carbon dioxide (CO2) in single-person offices and how to design the most effective green wall. Minimizing CO2 pollution in offices is important because peoples decision-making are affected when the CO2 concentration is above 2000 ppm. Therefor it is in the companies’ best interest to minimize CO2 concentration in the indoor air. Plants have been seen as an energy efficient way of achieving a better indoor environment, because they reduce the pollutants in the air. Furthermore they can be used as a recreational tool for the employees to enhance their work effort.
