Abstract

Technological and industrial developments are increasingly rapid, providing benefits and convenience for humans. Along with these developments, followed by soaring production of motor vehicles. Exhaust of motor vehicles can have a negative impact on health because of the large risk of exposure to heavy metals, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen and sulfur (CO, NOx, and SOx) which are toxic in certain doses or concentrations. The purpose of this study was to determine the decrease in ambient air quality before and after using the tongue-in-law leaves (sansiviera) in the ambient air. This type of research is quasi experimental with pretest and posttest design. The research time was carried out in May 2018. The population in this study was the leaf of the tongue-in-law (sansiviera). Which is made as a sample 3 pots of in-lawn tongue leaves (sansiviera) type of sansviera trifasciata golden hannii 2 pots and sansiviera trifasciata prain 1 pot. To find out whether or not there is a decrease in ambient air quality before and after using the leaf of the in-law tongue (sansiviera) by looking at the amount of difference and the percentage of decrease.The results of this study indicate that at 1:00 a.m. for the first gasoline 20% -50%, and premium gasoline 14.47% -50%. At 8:00 p.m. WITA for pertamax gasoline 12.57% -50% and gasoline premium 9.61%-2.5%. From these results it can be concluded that there is a decrease in ambient air quality after using the tongue-in-law leaves (sansiviera).
