CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2) ABSORPTION OF SEVERAL LANDSCAPE PLANTS THROUGH PHOTOSYNTHETIC ROUTEF. Fathurrahman, Nizam Mohd Said, Wan Juliana Wan Ahmad and Che Radziah Che Mohd Zain
A study of CO2 absorption by several types of landscape plants Albizia saman Jacq. Merr, Callophylum inophylum L., Eugenia papilose, Hopea odorata and Tecoma Stans albiflos Dillenia L) was carried out in an acrylic box. This study aimed to identify plant with the highest absorption of CO2 that could serve as the best biofilter to improve air quality through the process of photosynthesis. The experiment was carried out in an open area from 07.15am to 07.15pm (12 hrs). The results showed that A. saman absorbed the highest CO2 compared to the other plants thus promoting its ability to address climate change in micro environment. Also, the techniques used in this research were proven to be time-saving for photosynthesis data collection for each type of plants. This identified plant also could serve as the best biofilter to improve air quality through the process of photosynthesis.
