First, plant-based Air Purifier, Introduces by IIT Ropar’s Startup Company.


An Indian based startup company developed the first living plant-based air purifier named “Ubreathe Life”, which functions as an amplifier for air purification that can be used in indoor spaces.

IIT Ropar’s startup company, Urban Air Laboratory, claims to be the world’s first state-of-the-art ‘Smart Bio-Filter’ to make breathing fresh.

Working of Plant-based Air Purifier:

The air-purifying technology works through the natural leafy plant. The indoor air interacts with green leaves and goes to the soil-root region, where maximum impurities are sterilized.

The technology used in the system is the ‘Urban Munnar Effect’ along with patent-pending “Breathing Roots” to enhance the phytoremediation process of the plants.

Phytoremediation is a process by which plants remove impurities from the air effectively.

Ubreathe Life‘ Enhanced room air quality by eliminating particulate, impure gases and biological pollutants while increasing the oxygen levels in the indoor region by using specific plants, UV disinfection, Charcoal filter, and HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter arranged in a specially designed wooden box.

A centrifugal fan develops a suction pressure inside the cleaner and releases purified air, constituted at the roots, through the outlet in a 360-degree direction.

The plants tested for air purification include Peace Lily, Snake Plant, Spider plant, etc., and all showed promising results in purifying indoor air.

After a trial IIT, Professor Rajeev Ahuja, Ropar, claimed the AQI (Air Quality Index) for a room size 150sq.ft. Falls from 311 to 39 in 15 minutes after using the ‘Ubreathe Life’ air purifier.

He claimed that the air purifier is the first-ever living plant-based cleaner globally that can be revolutionary.

Sanjay Maurya, CEO, Ubreathe said that the buyer need not water the plant; it already has a water reservoir with 150ml capacity; the device itself supplies water to the roots when the plant gets dry.

According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, indoor space air is more contaminated than outside air. That is a concern, especially in the Covid times.

Recently, the US research group conducted that the average life expectancy has decreased by nine years due to growing air pollution in India. The ‘Ubreathe Life’ can be the solution to this issue.

The idea of a plant-based air purifier can be considered a revolutionary step in improving the quality of public health. It can be easily fitted in our indoor rooms and buildings, making it accessible to ordinary people.
