US: Indoor Harvest and BIOS Lighting to develop integrated LED solutions
The two Companies plan to collaborate, alongside Harvest Air, towards the development of a fully integrated platform designed to provide producers the ability to manage and record phenotypic plasticity in the Cannabis plant. By combining Indoor Harvest’s proven aeroponic methods, Harvest Air’s HVAC designs, and customized lighting solutions from BIOS Lighting, the three Companies plan to demonstrate an ability to manipulate and control phenotypic expression in the Cannabis plant for the purpose of research and production of pharmaceuticals.
“The current state of building integrated agriculture is a hodgepodge of various technologies that in many cases cannot communicate directly and are poorly integrated. This creates many inefficiencies and provides poor baseline data for research and feedback. Taking a page from the evolution of data centers, we’re bringing the key pillars of aeroponics, HVAC, and LED lighting together to develop scalable, fully integrated solutions. BIOS’s team of scientists and engineers are some of the best in the industry and I’m excited to have this opportunity to work with them,” stated Chad Sykes, Founder and Chief of Cultivation of Indoor Harvest.
In addition to collaborative product development, the group plans to develop advanced automation strategies to control the growth of cultivars with high pressure aeroponics by integrating power generation, HVAC, LED lighting systems, phytometric devices, and near-infrared technologies, into a fully integrated facilities package. By using real time measurements of plant physiological processes and precision management of the production facility environment, the group intends to offer the very first true biomanufacturing platform designed specifically for Cannabis phytochemistry and precise phytochemical production.
“From inception, BIOS Lighting has been using scientific endeavors to engineer quality, efficient, cutting-edge LED lighting solutions for a variety of biological lighting applications. Part of that innovation has been through collaborative efforts with strong scientific research and engineering partnerships. We (BIOS) couldn’t be more excited about working with Indoor Harvest on the future of Cannabis production and LED technology integration. We all see this as a need for the industry in the long-term. In addition, BIOS and Indoor Harvest have been proponents of optimizing environmental conditions to control plant expression profiles. Having this opportunity to use our controlled environment crop production expertise for this type of mutually beneficial and collaborative project fills a significant industry void and creates a much needed niche in the market,” stated Neil Yorio, Executive Vice President – Agricultural Lighting, BIOS Lighting.
Prototype development will take place in Tempe, Arizona, as part of Indoor Harvest’s planned Cannabis technology development. In exchange for BIOS Lighting’s support and services, Indoor Harvest has agreed to exclusively utilize any developed hardware or strategies provided by BIOS in its future developments in Parachute, Colorado and Stockdale, Texas, or other location in Texas approved under the Texas Compassionate Use program.
