GLOWEE – ENLIGHTENED BY THE SEA
Developing biological, living lighting systems to revolutionize the way we illuminate the world.
Glowee is reinventing light production with technology nature has already created, to make lighting more sustainable and healthier for humans and the environment. Having identified the genetic coding that creates bioluminescence, Glowee inserts this code into common, non-toxic, and non-pathogenic bacteria to produce clean, safe, synthetic bioluminescence.
Once engineered and grown, the bacteria are encapsulated into a transparent shell, alongside a medium composed of the nutrients they need to live and make light. This lighting solution can indefinitely and exponentially grow with little infrastructure needed and does not require any extraction of natural resources. The bio-mass of these micro-organisms at end of life can be revalued as bio-plastics, bio-fuels, and bio-vitamins.
