Laava Tech is a start-up working on an artificial lighting system to improve yield and energy efficiency for greenhouse operators around the world.
Most people assume that greenhouses are already optimized to have the best possible growing conditions for plants, but that’s far from the truth. In addition, many greenhouse operators use old-fashioned lighting systems and even worse, they rely on these lights to also produce heat for their greenhouses. This is inefficient, expensive, and damaging to many plants.
We are ready to solve that problem. Our proprietary software controls LED lights to give each plant the best possible growing conditions. In addition to improving yield, we can also decrease energy consumption significantly. Our LEDs use 2-10 times less energy than some of the current lighting systems in greenhouses, and the lifetime of our lamps is up to 10 times the lifetime of most current systems.
The value of our startup is not only in our product and our team but in our business model. Laava operates on a subscription model, collecting data to create a library of optimal growing conditions for a huge number of plants around the world.
We’ll be big data in plants.
