At first glance, Neo Px appears to be an ordinary houseplant, but beneath the surface lies a powerhouse of pollution-fighting bacteria.

This week, Neoplants, a biotech company based in France, unveiled the world's first bioengineered houseplant designed to combat harmful chemicals found in indoor air. Specifically targeting volatile organic compounds (VOCs), emitted by common household items like gas stoves, paints, and furniture.

Indoor air quality can be significantly worse than outdoor air, sometimes up to 100 times more polluted, as noted by the American Lung Association. This is primarily due to elevated levels of VOCs, which can lead to various health issues ranging from irritation to serious conditions like liver damage and cancer.
