Pollutec has been a flagship event for environmental innovation since it began in 1978. Every year it exhibits around 200 innovative solutions on its stands and during its lectures and prize-giving ceremonies.  This year it will introduce innovation spots, specific exhibition areas co-hosted by professional, institutional and academic partners, together with eco-innovative start-up clusters.

The global programme of lectures will include talks which deal with aids and obstacles to innovation in each sector.
