Heliospectra has had its European patent application approved by the European Patent Office. This marks the seventh region to approve the Company's core patent, as Europe joins the U.S., Russia, China, Canada, Japan, and Hong Kong.

The patent concerns methods in optimizing LED lighting for plants as well as to make working processes more efficient in greenhouse environments of the future.

Heliospectra's core technology involves systems for quality control and light optimization in greenhouses based on the different qualities of plants. One result is that the appearance, color and taste of the final product can be influenced.

Heliospectra said that its technology is unique as it is based on Internet of Things (IoT) technology, it combines sensors - which monitor the condition of plants and how they use the light - with state-of-the-art software that controls the lighting. This complete biofeedback system is protected by a portfolio of patents and patents pending.
