An Italian start-up company has developed a patented technology that guarantees the flexibility of LED luminaires to reproduce the ideal spectrum for better crop production taking into consideration the following two points.
One of the strategic aspects for the cultivation of phototropic organisms is the evaluation and management of the effects that light induces on them. Another aspect is the compensation of the amount of energy and the type of spectrum reproduced in the various age phases of the individual organisms.
The LED system comprises a software able to automatically adapt the spectrum to different types of cultivars without the need to replace lamps. The system is also able to optimise energy consumption and efficiency by using a quantum environmental sensor and to detect the radiant energy supplied to organisms to obtain the data that make up the ideal photobiological profile.
The system has the possibility to interact with the other technologies already present in the fermenters and photobioreactors in order to have a wider management and control of the supply of the specific "ingredients" (temperature, pH, dO 2, dCO 2, redox, antifoam, level, conductivity, weight, cell density ... ) .
Organisations operating in the production of fermenters and photobioreactors, research centres, universities, food industry are sought in order to establish a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
