Optimizing Sunlight for Sustainable Horticulture and Microalgae Cultivation.
We develop and produce materials that optimize the solar spectrum for better plant and algae growth in greenhouses and photobioreactors. Utilizing cutting-edge nanotechnology and photonics we aim to increase productivity, reduce costs, and reduce the energy consumption of the horticulture sector.
Harness the Power of the Sun
Did you know plants only use 6% of Sunlight to grow? At SolarFoil, we transform the Sun's spectrum into the most useful PAR light for plants, crops, and algae.
Optimized PAR Light
We optimise sunlight by converting the unused, and sometimes even harmful, light into the colours that are best absorbed by photosynthetic pigments.
Tailored Light Recipes
We develop cutting-edge spectral-converting materials and combine them into application-specific light recipes.
Our products' light recipes maximize yields and quality, thereby reducing the cost and footprint of crops grown under SolarFoil.
