Innovative Technology

The world faces major challenges in food production systems to meet rising populations whilst dealing with scarcities of land, water and energy and eco-political issues of globalisation and climate change. At the same time, biotechnology is evolving ways to manipulate plants for innovative new medicines. Horticulture grow-lighting can make a significant contribution: accelerating plant development, increasing frequencies of growing cycles, raising crop yields and influencing plant physiology to improve nutrition and taste. Against this background, Ceravision is using its invented and patented HEP lighting to create a unique range of grow-lights. With a small high intensity, electrodeless light source and the ability to economically tailor spectra, HEP is persuasive in horticulture. To this end, Ceravision is pleased to announce the launch of the UV420 - a grow-light with ‘blue-light’, UV-A and UV-B. This unique grow-light ensures stronger, faster vegetative growth and more resinous, higher yielding crops. The flexibility of our HEP technology enables us to tailor grow-lights for horticulture that can enhance production efficiencies and help scientists create designer plants without genetic modification or chemical usage. We are also exploring the potential for HEP in other areas of food and water security including a UV-C spectrum for water sterilisation. Ceravision will continue to develop our HEP technology to help address global challenges.

ionCORE® Technology

This revolutionary plasma technology invented by Ceravision provides flexibility in spectral output including delivering tailored spectra, including UV-A and UV-B for general and specific horticulture grow-light applications.


In horticulture, Ceravision’s new 420W High Energy Photon Grow-Light demonstrates performance and economic benefits over legacy and LED grow-lights; and can deliver real added value to crops.


The Environment is at the heart of all we do. Our components and processes minmise environmental impacts. And we continue to develop our HEP technology to address global challenges in food production, water supply and energy efficiency.
