Proving ELPO’s impact on indoor humidity.

ELPO in cooperation with Riga Stradins University and DNB bank conducted a case study in office conditions with the aim of finding out how botanical biofiltration impacts the air quality of modern buildings. The research showed that ELPO improves the air humidity in the heating season. Dry air and its impact on human wellbeing Imagine for a moment. It's winter. Snow and wind are howling outside. The temperature has dropped below - 10 oC. When you touch the warm radiators,...

VERTICAL GREEN WALLS vs BOTANICAL BIOFILTERS

What's the difference? While visually vertical green walls and botanical biofilters are almost identical, as the most prominent feature in them being the plants, there is a lot more going on under the hood of a biofilter than one usually realises. Botanical biofilters are distinctly made to have an increased air purifying capacity which entails a specialised substrate, ventilation components and other quirks of the system that combine and increase the sum of the powers of nature and technology. Green wall...

Testing the humidification of ELPO plantbot in 200m2 office with ARANET

Indoor environment can be improved by so called active green walls. One such technology is ELPO - a biofilter that cleans and humidifies the indoor air by forcing it through a ceramic substrate where plants and microorganisms remove the harmful particles and substances. KO TU ELPO team has evaluated ELPO's impact on humidity levels indoors by testing it in real-world conditions with cutting-edge air quality sensors - Aranet4. They are state-of-the-art wireless monitoring devices that produce large amount of data...

Indoor humidity and COVID-19

Our daily and work activities have moved directly indoors, so it is worth finding out how indoor humidity can affect our health. Studies have shown that increasing indoor humidity can help deactivate coronavirus COVID-19 particles from spreading. It is during the cold winter months, when the premises are mostly closed and heated, that the humidity levels can decrease by up to 20%, and unfortunately, the COVID-19 virus has been shown to remain viable in these low humidity conditions. However,...

Indoor polution and how to fight it

It is utterly forgettable that we do not live in an empty space, but, just like fish, we swim in the air. We push against the ground like the bottom of the ocean, walk around like little crabs and drink the air deep into our lungs, where it feeds us every waking (and sleeping) moment of our lives. In, perhaps, a sad turn of events, though we can taste rot and (most) poison in our drinks and food, we...
