Using a combination of molecular biology, plant physiology, metabolism, and microbiome engineering, Neoplants has developed plants that efficiently capture and recycle the most harmful pollutants from indoor air.
Indoor air pollution is up to five times higher than outdoors. Humans spend 90% of their time inside, yet there is no effective solution against the main pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds.
Neoplants used the latest synthetic biology and gene editing techniques to develop the first plants built to purify the air in homes.Their first product (Neo P1) is equivalent to up to 30 regular houseplants in terms of air purification. It also doesn’t store pollutants as a normal houseplant would do, but recycles them into useful metabolites.
