Innovation has been Pollutec's DNA since its beginnings, making the show a formidable springboard for green innovation. The 2018 edition gathered over 150 innovations presented in world-premiere, hosted 100 startups and 4 innovation awards ceremonies.
Innovation is present throughout the whole exhibition area: on both individual stands and collective pavilions. To give innovations the opportunity to be noticed by the greater amount of professionals, Pollutec and its partners have set up dedicated areas:
ADEME - French Ministry for the Environment
La French Tech
French Ministry for the Economy and Finance
Lyon's Startup Hub
Trophies & Awards
Pollutec brings together the global community of environment professionals, making it the perfect opportunity to engage with your business ecosystem. Thus a number of partners have chosen the show to host their corporate or institutional award ceremonies:
