About

Glaia, a spinout from the University of Bristol, uses a carbon-based nano-material to create ‘sugar dots’ that when applied to the plant improves the  efficiency of photosynthesis – the energy producing process that plants use to fuel their growth. Naturally, less than 1% of the sun’s rays absorbed by plants are turned into biomass.

Dr David Benito-Alifonso, Founder, CEO of Glaia says: “Our mission is to enhance agricultural productivity and reduce pressure on natural resources by optimising plants’ performance. Our first family of products, the sugar-dots, enhance plants’ photosynthesis, the bottleneck in biomass production.

“Our technology increases crop yields and allows crops to be farmed outside their traditional growing regions by simply applying it alongside traditional farming treatments.”
