Goal: to encourage the collaboration between the public research laboratories presenting projects in the fields of energy and environment, and industrial decision makers in search of innovative solutions.

Awards ceremony: Tuesday 2nd December at 4:00 p.m, on the Pollutec TV Stage.

Press partners: Info-Chimie Magazine, Hydroplus, Environnement Magazine Hebdo, EnergiePlus, Mesures et Green News Techno.


Deadline for the submissions:
Wednesday 16th July, 6:00 p.m

The public research laboratories must fill the application file (one application by project) and send it by email, before WEDNESDAY 16th July, 6:00 p.m, at recherche-industrie@hotmail.fr

Production of energy from biomass or waste

Narbonne INRA Biotechnology and Environment Laboratory: production of hydrogen and methane (biohythane) from untreated household waste.

TEMPO laboratory, University of Valenciennes and Hainaut Cambrésis: development of a wood-fired micro combined heat and power unit prototype.

Recycling and waste exploitation

Light Materials Institute (ILM), Claude Bernard Lyons 1 University: new laser process for the recycling of multi-layer polymer films (total elimination of PVDC without PET degradation).

Eco-design of industrial products

Institute of Molecular Chemistry at the University of Burgundy, Dijon: eco-design of nitrogen compounds for the chemical industry and health (considerable potential for the pharmaceutical industry as well as the treatment of water and soils or electronics).

System Design and Integration Laboratory (LCIS), Grenoble INP, Valence: chipless identification system (Chipless technology for RFID labels on paper combining the ability to recycle substrates and reducing the power of radio frequency emissions).

OEnology Research Unit, University of Bordeaux Segalen, Villenave d'Ornon: pulsed electric fields for the extraction of polyphenol compounds and the inactivation of microorganisms in winemaking.

Detection and monitoring of water pollutants.

Institute of Chemical Sciences, Rennes - CIP “Process Chemistry and Engineering” team: study, modelling and simulation of the formation of chlorination by-products in drinking water distribution networks.

Institute of Analytical Sciences/Irstea, Villeurbanne: electrically addressable, functional micro-machined BDD laser micro-cell for the quantification of contaminants in liquids (BDD = film of microcrystalline diamond doped with boron).

Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering Laboratory, INSA, Lyon: device for monitoring spillages in urban environments (by means of the continuous measurement of flows and pollutant flows discharged into storm sewers).

The 2013 awards ceremony was held at 4 p.m on December 3rd in the Pollutec Horizons TV Stage
