Plant-powered indoor filtration system

Mathieu Lehanneur created a plant-powered indoor filtration system, that pulls in filthy air to be processed through a plant's leaves, roots, and humidity, reintroducing purified air back into the room.

Now hold on...I like where this is going, but an ordinary plant doesn't produce NEARLY enough oxygen at a fast enough speed for this to be viable, you'd need plants specifically engineered for the purpose...Probably a dense spongy moss would work best, something akin to the consistency of Reindeer moss, but photosynthesizing at a highly elevated rate, and at all times...

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
