CrayoNano and TSLC Successful Design-In of CrayoLED for Aquaculture UV-C Sterilizer

Trondheim, Norway and ChuNan,Taiwan—2024 May 29—CrayoNano and Taiwan Semiconductor Lighting Company (TSLC) Corporation announce the successful design-in of the CrayoLED™ H-series (CLH-N3S) UV-C LED into TSLC Corporation's new, patented product made for in-line UV-C sterilization for aquarium water filtration systems. This compact, turnkey, and easy-to-install UV-C LED sterilizer is designed for algae control in aquariums, hydroponics, and various commercial aquaculture applications, prioritizing user convenience and the health and environmental quality of aquatic life. The acceptance in consumer and commercial applications marks a significant step towards broader industrial applications in larger fisheries, farms, and food production.

The UV disinfection market in aquaculture and agriculture is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 12%, reaching USD 138.53 billion by 2030 according to a market report from Coherent Market Insights, driven by the adoption of sustainable technologies for aquaculture and fish farming. As the global population continues to grow, so does the need and demand for personal hygiene and disinfection. Many in the industry are looking towards UV disinfection to increase food capacity, enhance biosecurity and resiliency in our food supply and production, reduce long-term water management expenses and looking for the reduction and possible alternatives to the use of harmful chemicals and antibiotics.

TSLC's in-line UV-C LED sterilizer, powered by CrayoNano's advanced CrayoLED technology, seamlessly integrates into a wide range of commercial and consumer aquarium water filtration systems. This energy-efficient, hassle-free upgrade provides a reliable water purification solution for effective algae control. Comparative tests between traditional 11W mercury lamps and their in-line UV-C LED sterilizer in a 40-liter tank with an algae concentration of 2 milligrams per liter (mg/L) demonstrated that the UV-C LED sterilizer clears algae infestations twice as fast, achieving results in under 24 hours of continuous operation, an energy savings of 50 %. The CrayoLED integration ensures a longer-lasting product with better efficacy, eliminating the environmental drawbacks associated with mercury-based products and reducing the need for chemical treatments, such as chlorine or hydrogen peroxide.

"We tested many UV-C LEDs during the development of our UV-C LED sterilizer. Algae have a fast growth cycle and are a nuisance for many consumers. It requires significant UV-C dosage for effective disinfection and control. We integrated CrayoLEDs because of their power performance. . When combined with our patented design, our UV-C sterilizer achieves an ideal balance of high-intensity and efficient germicidal dosing, ensuring targeted and effective algae sterilization," said Mark Chen, President and General Manager of TSLC.

"TSLC's UV-C LED sterilizer exemplifies an extension of our product reach beyond drinking water applications. Innovative product development and collaboration with partners to open new applications and treatments showcase the potential of UV-C LEDs as effective and sustainable solutions for water treatment and more, limited only by the imagination," said Stefan Stockbauer, Global Sales Director of CrayoNano.

TSLC's UV-C LED sterilizer system leverages CrayoLED's power performance and reliable UV-C LED technology to ensure effective algae control, reducing the frequency of cleaning and maintenance for aquatic environments. The system's compact design and ease of installation make it an attractive option for both commercial and consumer applications. This commercial expansion is expected to develop rapidly over the next few years, opening new business opportunities and markets.
