TechnAvOx has turned the corner
 

 
Specialized in lowering pollution by industrial effluents, the fledgling small business founded by Florence Pontlevoy availed itself of the Pollutec salon by concretizing a sizable number of its contacts. Let us shed light on a company that has been moving forward in leaps and bounds.

No doubt about it, a salon remains the best way to generate business with potential partners. And so, the Poitiers Biopole hit the nail on the head when it sent its firms to Paris (Investiga), to Nantes (Biotech) and to Lyon (Pollutec). The time and energy expended was anything but lost. As a young company director hailing from the laboratory of catalysis in organic chemistry (LACCO), Florence Pontlevoy bears witness to the justification for the above statements.

It was indeed on the occasion of the Lyon-based Pollutec salon, in December 2004, that Ms. Pontlevoy nailed down several contracts. TechnAvOx brought back six requests for trials and one duly concluded installation contract. “We contribute something new in a cutting edge field and at this type of salon, visitors tend to pay attention”, states the gratified scientist, who has been exploiting a patent for catalytic ozonation permitting economical treatment of industrial effluents.

Alternative

“Our first steps forward were time-consuming. But now, things are looking up. Since December, we have started detecting the fruits of our labors”, recognizes the Doctor who, following several months of fits and starts, seems to have settled into cruising speed. More economical, easier to exploit and more ecological than its “competitors”, the catalytic ozonation procedure indeed represents a genuine alternative to active coal and to ozonation. In fact, TechnAvOx is just about to take on a fourth salaried staff member. The proof is in the pudding…

Supported from the outset by the Poitou-Charentes regional incubator and by PCE/PCI (Poitou-Charentes expansion and innovation), Florence Pontlevoy now intends to use the salons as springboards for the development of her small but growing business. “Above and beyond the salons as such, books are published with the name and address of each participant. They are widely read and open doors towards industrial specialists and other partners…” The next edition of Pollutec is scheduled for November 29 through December 2 at Paris-Villepinte. Ms. Pontlevoy has now doubt already checked off that date in her diary.
