The work of CASCADE is multidisciplinary and involves physics, chemistry, and agronomy

To speed up its development, CASCADE fosters long-term collaborations with academic research laboratories and agronomic experimental farms, as well as with industrial and commercial experts in the greenhouse film industry.

Academic Research

CASCADE's internal R&D team focuses on the development of industrial formulations and collaborates with scientific experts from academic research laboratory in agronomy (INRA) and polymer chemistry (CNRS). A multiyear (2019-2022) research collaborative project (ECLA), cofinanced by ADEME (French environmental agency) ensures long term collaboration with INRA and CNRS laboratories.


Industrial Partners

CASCADE is working with leading European suppliers of agricultural films to benefit from the manufacturing and commercial expertise of these manufacturers.


Agronomic Experimental Farms

To validate the performance of the technology for various crops in multiple geographies, CASCADE has coordinated trials with several leading agronomic experimental farms in France, Spain and internationally;. Such trials also allow the LIGHT CASCADES® technology to be optimized for the particular crop of interest (e.g. berries, tomatoes, melons, etc.) and for the relevant growing conditions of the region to improve agronomic performance under real-world conditions.
