초록

본 연구의 최종 목표는 실내의 공간과 식물바이오필터의 규모에 따라 실내공기 오염물질을 정화할 수 있는 식물 녹화와 자동관수 그리고 생물학적 여과 기능을 통합한 식물바이오필터 시스템의 개발이다. 본 실험에 사용된 식물 바이오 필터는 실내공간을 효율적으로 사용하기 위해 물펌프, 물탱크, 송풍기, 가습장치, 그리고 다층 구조의 식물 식재 공간을 일체형으로 설계하였다. 본 연구는 인공적인 실내 공기 오염원을 발생시키지 않은 상태에서 바이오필터 부근의 공간과 바이오필터와 멀리 떨어진 공간(무처리구)의 실내 공기질을 비교하고, 바이오필터 내다층 구조의 식재층에 따른 식물의 생육을 평가하고자 수행하였다. 바이오필터 처리 공간 내 휘발성 유기 화합물(TVOCs), 일산화탄소, 이산화탄소와 같은 실내 공기 오염물질의 농도는 무처리구에 비해 낮게 나타났다. 또한 바이오필터 내 식재된 층에 관계없이 Dracaena sanderiana ‘Vitoria’와 Epipremnum aureum ‘N Joy’는 정상적으로 생육하였다. 따라서 실내식물을 식재할 수 있는 본 벽면형 식물바이오필터는 실내 공기 정화에도 효과가 있는 것으로 확인하였다.
