By maintaining good indoor air quality, individuals can protect their health and well-being. Lowering emissions, removing pollutants and adopting new building designs may help individuals improve the air in a structure. Clean indoor climates increase workers’ productivity, which benefits business owners.

If you thought potted plants purified air in your home or office, you are mistaken, according to researchers at Drexel University.
A new study on decades of research into plants and air quality suggests the benefits of potted plants are vastly overstated.
“Plants are great, but they don’t actually clean indoor air quickly enough to have an effect on the air quality of your home or office environment," said Michael Waring, an associate professor of architectural and environmental engineering in Drexel’s College of Engineering.
The mission of the new alliance is to promote and advocate for indoor climate and health in buildings
