A heat sensitive coating for greenhouse glass, that would maintain optimum temperatures all year around and remove the annual cost of applying and removing shading, is being developed by University of Bristol spin-out Albotherm.
Molly Allington, CEO and Co-founder of Albotherm, says:
“When the required temperature is reached, the transition from transparent to white is nearly instantaneous – a few seconds; it’s just a matter of the glass having the time to change temperature, and then it’s very, very quick.”
Molly is looking forward to talking to potential partners, growers, and investors at REAP 2021.
“At the moment we’re based in Future Space, a start-up incubator based at UWE in Bristol, and testing the products in the lab. We are talking to partners about further product trials and scale-up of our facilities.”
