Urban garden bio-filter

Urban Garden Biofilter is an air filter framed in an urban garden to reduce the emissions of underground car parks or other stationary sources of pollutant compounds in urban environments. This NBS can be adapted to existing car parks or tunnels, or included in the design of new infrastructures.

It is composed of three main elements:

  1. the extractor system to extract the polluted air from underground areas/ car parks;
  2. the plenum section to distribute the air under the Biofilter and
  3. the Biofilter itself to clean the air and metabolize pollutants.

The Urban Garden Biofilter captures most of NOX and PM (>90%) from indoor air (pollutants concentration 0.5-1 ppm)
