Microalgae is a valuable natural resource that grows in water and photosynthesizes, converting carbon dioxide into oxygen and producing high-value compounds such as algal oil, proteins, and pigments. These compounds have a wide range of applications, including food, feed, cosmetics, and biofuels.
As LED spectrum technology becomes increasingly mature, many companies have begun to set up specialized plant factories for microalgae cultivation. Compared with outdoor planting, indoor planting can avoid the uncertainty of the external environment, such as meteorological conditions and pollution, and ensure the quality and consistency of microalgae. More importantly, the development of LED allows us to more accurately control the spectrum required for microalgae cultivation.
Like many plants, red light (660nm) and blue light (450nm) are still important wavelengths required for the growth of microalgae. Red light affects the growth cycle, while blue light can promote photosynthesis. Of course, some people say that infrared (730nm) and green light (520nm) also have a positive impact on microalgae.
However, the most critical issue is the ratio of different lights because low light will limit the growth of microalgae, while strong light will inhibit the growth. LEDESTAR has been in the LED industry of plant lighting for nearly 10 years. During this period, we cooperated with major companies to solve spectrum problems for different plant plantings. In the past few years, we have customized more than 2,000 sets of spectra. And the parameters of our main products, such as red light, blue light, and white light, are improving every year, providing efficient support for plant lighting.
We hope to solve every customer's planting problems, not just provide LEDs. "The spectrum you want to grow mangoes, the spectrum you want to grow watermelons, the spectrum you want to grow medicinal herbs, we will provide it to you after experimentation and practice," Tony said.
