Assessing the Junglefy novel green wall system for improving indoor air quality

Project Member(s): Torpy, F., Gladstone, W.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Junglefy Pty Ltd
Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (Department of Industry Partnership Fund)

Start year: 2015

Summary: The proposed project will provide a thorough assessment of the capacity of the Junglefy green wall system to improve the two major components of indoor air pollution, along with an assessment of its aerobiological safety. The project will be performed in three distinct sections: 1. Microbiological safety of the system 2. Air quality bioamelioration capacity of the system 3. Optimisation of the operating parameters of the system and field trials
