Nano Labs Announces Assignment Of Provisional Patent For LED Intelligent Lighting Systems For Agricultural Greenhouses

Stocks in this article: CTLE

DETROIT, March 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nano Labs Corp. (OTCQB:CTLE) is pleased to announce it has been issued a provisional patent number for the Company's "intelligent illumination system" for greenhouses, that works with commercial light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to reduce energy consumption and improve processes contributing to the growth of plant life in agricultural greenhouses.

Further to the Company's press release of December 18, 2012, with the filing of the patent application complete and the provisional patent number issued, the Company is moving forward with the commercialization of the product.

The new system reduces energy consumption while at the same time providing improved control over artificial light used to stimulate photochemical activities in plants for growth and the production of chlorophyll. By employing a "The Pulse Modulated Chlorophyll Fluorescence Monitoring Stage," the innovative technology provides for the automatic control of light in relation to a whole range of greenhouse and plant conditions, including seasonal adjustments tailored to the type of vegetables and plants being illuminated.

The technology claims better control in relation to light frequency (wavelength), light quality, and pulse width of the light beams emitted by the LEDs, which hold important advantages over other existing artificial illumination sources such as fluorescent lamps, metal halide lamps, and high-pressured sodium lamps. The system offers higher efficiency in terms of energy consumption and quantum efficiency of the light produced and also provides for a longer lifespan, a controllable emission spectrum, safer handling, as well as improved disposal procedures.

The novel system for greenhouses has allowed Nano Labs to determine the effect of pulsed light, as opposed to simple continuous light, in a frequency range from 0.1Hz to 100 kHz, with red and blue LEDs on the chlorophyll fluorescence emission of tomato plants, demonstrating that it is possible through the Company's innovations to control and enhance plant growth at will.
