Glowee develops a biological source of light, using the bioluminescent properties of marine micro-organisms. Bioluminescence is a chemical reaction coded by genes. By enabling bacteria to make light, Glowee offers a living and lighting raw material which is self-sufficient and needs no infrastructures, thus disrupting the way to produce and consume light.

The need

PRODUCT_PICTURE1_GLOWEEBy developping this new source of light, Glowee aims to offer an alternative solution to:
– reduce the 19% share of electricty used in the world to light, which accounts for 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and ;
– provide light to people or places which do not have access to electricity.

The solution

PRODUCT_PICTURE2_GLOWEEWe target the retail industry and various actors of the urban landscapes markets, to which we offer different applications based on the use of a natural bioluminescent raw-material, able to depart from current infrastructures to produce a natural light over time.

The value proposition

We offer a smooth, ecological and biological source of light, with a wide potential of use in the retail industry and the urban landscape.
