PhytoLux was one of 100 companies to be selected to showcase its innovation to over 3,000 attendees at Innovate 2015 on November 9th and 10th at Old Billingsgate in London. PhytoLux Ltd, a UK company based in Leatherhead, is at the forefront of the exciting opportunity that exists to provide the global plant growth industry with a commercially viable option for plant growth supplemental lighting. Founder and Managing Director, Steve Edwards, has taken a unique engineering approach to LED plant growth lighting technology and by sharing knowledge with UK research scientists, horticulturists and growers, PhytoLux has developed a low energy LED solution with proven results.

The product featuring at the show is the PhytoLux/Unigro - Research Panel. This unique LED system is a thin profile, low energy panel with up to 14 wavelengths that are individually programmable. The panel has been designed in conjunction with Unigro, one of the UK’s leading controlled environment companies supported by the Plant Sciences Department at the University of Oxford. The panel provides a fully controllable solution for university and research growth chambers and is an ideal plant growth lighting solution for universities and research organisations.
