ANSAN, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (KOSDAQ 046890), a global optical semiconductor company, showcases a "Natural Light Experience Space" where consumers can directly experience "SunLike, the Natural Light" lighting at Boromwat Botanical Garden in Jeju Island, South Korea, on the Korean Arbor Day.
Boromwat, located on Jeju Island attracting 350,000 tourists every year, is a large indoor and outdoor botanical garden that pursues the "value of being together" agriculture. Seoul Semiconductor conducts partnership marketing under the concept of "Light beneficial to both people and plants" in the indoor space of the newly opened Plant Growing Garden in Boromwat.
Recently, as the variables to take into account in outdoor cultivation, such as climate change and environmental pollution, have diversified, indoor agriculture is emerging as an alternative, which grows crops indoors. In the United States and Europe, as interest in future food-tech is booming, indoor agriculture and smart farm technology are rapidly shaping new trends. In particular, demand for LED for plant growth, an essential factor affecting the cultivation environment of crops, is soaring high and businesses related to plant growth are in the spotlight in Korea as well.
Seoul Semiconductor's SunLike is an innovative lighting technology through which one simple small LED chip reproduces natural light. When using SunLike lighting indoors, it is almost the same as being exposed to natural light outdoors.
Natural light is essential for humans and plants to sustain life. SunLike lighting installed in Boromwat Botanical Garden realizes a full spectrum similar to the wide wavelength range of 380 ~ 740nm (nanometer) of sunlight. Therefore, even if plants are grown indoors 24/7, their nutrients and vitality can be reproduced as much as those of plants grown in the sun, not missing the taste and quality of course.
SunLike has various advantages such as preventing myopia, improving eye fatigue and learning ability. To promote its features, Seoul Semiconductor provides "SunLike EYE" fresh juice made from Jeju carrots and holds a hashtag event through SunLike Instagram (www.instagram.com/sunlike.korea).
