This paper presents experimental data characterizing the influence of a green wall on 14 Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) parameters. Tests were performed in twin test huts where a green wall planted with Spathiphyllum Cubido was installed in one of the huts while the other hut served as a reference. The results indicate that the green wall was very effective for lowering the concentration of total volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide which were on average 61.2%, 50.8% and 45.2% lower respectively with the green wall. On average, the green wall also contributed to reduce the maximum temperature by 2°C and to raise the relative humidity level by 36.1% but didn’t have a significant impact on carbon dioxide and oxygen levels.
