Leading Hydroponic Research Worldwide.
ÔpennLabs Europe is a research-driven nanotechnology start-up based in England and France. Our goal is to commercialize nanotechnology and to develop practical solutions for longstanding problems facing the hydroponics and controlled environment agriculture sector.
Working closely with leading academic researchers, we create nanoparticles using a patented process—bringing nanotechnology within reach of growers of high-value crops and plant research scientists.
The formation of particles at nanoscale (1 – 100 nanometers) used to be an extremely time-consuming and costly process, rendering it prohibitively expensive outside of research laboratories. Now, thanks to a patented, breakthrough manufacturing process, ÔpennLabs Europe can produce metal oxide nanoparticles reliably and consistently, meaning this groundbreaking technology is now viable for use in medicinal and high-value agricultural crop production facilities.
We are at the forefront of phytonanotechnology research in Europe and are constantly developing and testing new concepts and ideas. ÔpennLabs Europe was created, not just as a commercial arm, but also to directly fund research. Each year we sponsor one Masters student placement at Nottingham Trent University, England. We also support bio-fortification projects in the development world to help reduce iron-deficiency in animals and humans.
