You are invited to a free online seminar, hosted by Nedlaw Living Walls founder, Dr. Alan Darlington. The seminar entitled, “The Biofiltration of Indoor Air: Putting nature to work indoors”, will be of special benefit to architects, developers, building managers, and anyone looking for ways to improve the indoor living environment.
The Biofiltration of Indoor Air: Putting nature to work indoors
Did you know that a Living Wall Biofilter is more than just pretty plants on a wall?
This interior plantscape is actually an innovative technology that effectively removes common indoor pollutants and improves the living environment.
Is it little wonder that this indoor environment and in particular indoor air quality (IAQ), has a large impact on our well-being?
We spend 80 to 90% of our time indoors. The buildings we inhabit are frequently designed to be ‘air tight’. While sealing the building may keep heating and cooling costs down, it also traps all the pollutants that arise in the spaces which can affect our health. We are constantly choosing between the well-being of the occupants and the energy performance of the building.
An Indoor Air Biofilter (Living Wall) helps solve this dilemma. It represents the hybridization of science and art to deal with the real problems in an aesthetic and sustainable manner.
In this free online seminar you will learn:
- The principles of indoor air biofiltration.
- The impact of biofilters on IAQ
- The basic components of an Indoor Air Biofilter.
- How to conceptually design the Indoor Air Biofilter into a living space

Nedlaw Living Walls
Alan Darlington was awarded his PhD investigating the interaction between plants and their physical environment from the University of Guelph. The application of plant based biofilters to the indoor space has been his area of interest and expertise for 20 years.
Since 2004, his companies have installed over 150 biofilters across North America. Alan has received a number of awards for academic and entrepreneurial accomplishments and is the ‘inventor’ of a number of patents.
In 2005, he was named by Outdoor Magazine as one of the 25 top true believers in the environmental movement for his work with plant biofilters. In 2012 he was one of the luminaries featured in the book, The Rise of Living Architecture Commemorative Edition, for his contribution to the development of the living wall industry over the past decade.
