Pollutec is an international event showcasing solutions for the environment and the energy transition for industry, cities, and regions. Like in 2021, Lyon Métropole and Aderly (the Economic Development Agency for the Lyon Region) will take part in the 45th edition of the event, from Tuesday 10 to Friday 13 October 2023, at Eurexpo Lyon (Chassieu).

Join us at Pollutec 2023, hall 4 – aisle G, at the Lyon Métropole and Aderly booths

Throughout the event, we will be on hand at our neighbouring booths in aisle G of Hall 4 at Eurexpo Lyon.

  • Métropole de Lyon booth, number 14, will focus on the topic "preserving resources".
  • Aderly's booth, number 17, will promote businesses that offer innovative solutions for waste management and energy efficiency.

Join us in Hall 4 at Eurexpo Lyon, at our booths n°14 and n°17 in aisle G.

What's in store at the Lyon Métropole booth?

Lyon Métropole will be promoting its actions in favour of a sustainable trajectory and a more energy-sufficient, circular and carbon-neutral region, with a focus on preserving resources. Concrete examples will be exhibited at booth H4 G014:

  • Preserving water resources: Lyon Métropole began directly managing drinking water production and distribution in the region when it set up "Eau publique du Grand Lyon" (Greater Lyon public water), which began operating on 1st January 2023.
  • Recycling food waste and green waste to preserve natural resources and promote a sustainable and resilient local food system through individual and group-based composting solutions, returning valuable resources to the land.
  • Energy sufficiency and efficiency and the development of renewable energy sources.
  • Promoting an increasingly circular economy, with a strong commitment to developing reuse networks, for example for building materials by helping to set up a platform for sorting and preparing materials for reuse.
  • Sustainable employment for everyone, here in the region: Lyon Métropole is a large-scale local employer in skilled professions in the transition sector, helping to improve quality of life for the region's inhabitants. At Pollutec 2023, it will be helping jobseekers meet businesses in the Lyon Métropole region.
  • Using responsible procurement as a driving force to implement environmental and social criteria, and to favour local cooperations and local channels.
  • Supporting strategic industries for the region's transition: the Métropole supports local associations and encourages formative positive-impact projects that help to protect resources.
  • Decarbonising the region: a key priority for Lyon Métropole, which brings together a community of players committed to the region's transition. A "Manifesto for industrial transformation and environmental commitment" (150 signatory companies to date) and a Pact for Impact 2023-2030 set out the joint ambitions of the industries based in Lyon's Chemical Valley.

The Aderly booth showcases six solutions offered by local businesses

Join us at Aderly's booth (Hall 4 – G17) to discover innovative solutions provided by six companies that are moving or expanding into the Lyon region.

  • Cycle Terre
    • Winner of the European initiative Urban Innovative Actions, Cycle Terre recovers and reuses earth excavated from building sites to produce building materials with a low environmental impact.
  • Lemon Tri
    • Lemon Tri offers innovative solutions for sorting recyclable waste at source and collecting reusable packaging. These solutions increase recycling and reuse rates and create employment opportunities for people (re)integrating the job market.
  • Leviathan Dynamics
    • Leviathan Dynamics designs and manufactures a centrifugal compressor system that uses mechanical vapour compression. It is used in two energy-efficient innovations that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save water: "clean" heating and cooling technology using water as a natural refrigerant (heat pumps, chillers) and a wastewater treatment system for a circular economy (evapo-concentration process).
  • Moulinot 
    • Moulinot is a solidarity-based company with social value (the French ESUS status) specialised in managing food waste (biowaste). It collects and treats food waste which it then supplies to local farmers and operators of anaerobic digestion plants. Moulinot also helps its customers introduce sorting systems and provides training in environmental issues.
  • Novumtech and Renault Trucks 
    • Novumtech, a startup specialised in designing and manufacturing batteries, and Renault Trucks, a pioneer in the circular economy and electric mobility, are combining their expertise to decarbonise the goods transport sector. The two partners have just passed a key milestone by converting a 16-tonne diesel lorry into a battery-powered electric truck. This electric retrofit is a win-win project because it preserves natural resources whilst reducing the environmental impact of the vehicle's use.
    • With financial backing from the French Environment and Energy Management Agency ADEME, the project was launched at the Renault Trucks plant in Lyon through the CampX programme. This programme enables Renault Trucks to step up its technological and commercial innovation by creating synergies between its teams and startups.
  • OGGA
    • OGGA is a new Lyon-based company that offers a technological solution to reduce energy consumption in housing using an electronic module and a self-learning algorithm. Easily installed and particularly well-suited to social housing, it offers savings on heating bills and avoids unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions.
    • The company designs and markets its products in the heart of Lyon. It draws on the region's ecosystem for both production and preparation. With Solar Impulse certification and over 10,000 homes fitted with its system, OGGA is the first company to introduce the "smart home" concept on a large-scale in social housing. It has already avoided over 30,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
