One of the environmental issues was the increasing of air pollution concentration. On the other hand, Bogor Botanical Gardens had high potential as an air quality controller. This study aims to calculate Bogor Botanical Gardens plants ability to reduce CO2, NO2, and dustfall emission, analyzing the correlation of leave morphology with the plant ability in absorb dustfall, and determine criteria of plant that can reduce CO2, NO2, and dustfall. Total amount of CO2, NO2, and dustfall emission and Bogor Botanical Garden sink ability was calculated by secondary data from multiple source unit and its corresponding emission factors. The ability of several plants to absorb dustfall was calculated by gravimetric method using samples from Bogor Botanical Garden. The sample plants were Sansevieria trifasciata, Cinnamomum multiflorum, Callicarpa pedunculata, Carmona retusa, and Antigonon leptopus. The analysis showed that Bogor Botanical Gardens were able to reduce CO2 emissions by 28.7%, NO2 by 2.2%, and dustfall by 11.4%. Plant ability to absorb dustfall was 0.02-0.7 mg/cm^2. The most effective species to absorb dustfall was Carmona retusa with maximum capacity of 0.7 mg/cm^2.
