The French SME has developed a range of compact systems of photocatalysis. This method allows to sterilize air by photocatalytic reaction. It is dedidacted to treatment of ambient air in enclosed spaces and of rejected smokes. The treated air is completely pure and allows a good breathing and atmosphere. The company is looking for distribution agreements and contracts with commercial agents, in order to promote its products and technology.
The French company, established in 2010, is working on different methods to purify atmosphere. The SME has developed a photocatalysis technology which allows a silent operation with an important efficiency. The polluted air is taken and rejected in the same area but totally fresh and cleared. To achieve the air treatment, the French company base the process on the principle of photocatalysis. This principle consists in subjecting a substrate coated with a titanium dioxide film (TiO2) with an ultraviolet source. This configuration causes a physicochemical reaction that destroys all VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Then, the atmospheric air is taken and put in contact with the substrate. Hence, with the ultraviolet lamp, the photocatalytic reaction of oxidation allows the purification of the air. Finally, the purified air is reinjected in the atmosphere. The system presents the advantage to be efficient and also decorative, it's a lamp base integrating an air purification system. The features of the embedded equipment is the efficient purification of various air types, i.e the incoming air, the ambient air or the exhausted air. The process allows treatment of all volatile organic compounds (VOCs) regardless of their nature (virucide, bactericide, fungicide, algicide, sporicidal, destructive allergenic proteins). The French company is looking for commercial distributors or agents with the aim to build an international distribution network and to offer their designed lamp with purification system to different types of collective areas such as hotels or other sites where clients or patients are welcomed (for example waiting rooms in medical sector or public adminsitrations).
Innovations and advantages
The advantages of the system are : • The purification and air decontamination technology without the use of active products • No residues, completely ecological and environmental-friendly Several factors demonstrate the product efficiency : • No special requiremenst of temperature or humidity : all types of ambient air are treated • Low noise level • New technology: incoming air is forced through the decontaminating device • Product range adapted to any volume of problematic process and organic elements to absorb • A carbon filter allows active and continuous regeneration, no replacement needed • Replacement of the UV lamps is carried out every 8000 hours, or 1 per year

Area of partner's activity
The company is looking for distributors or commercial agents to promote their solution on new markets. They especially target the hotel industry, waiting rooms (of medical centers, public administrations, etc.). The French company would like to build an international network of commercial agents / distributors. They want to ensure their presence in different countries to address directly final users, with their product : specific air treatment functions integrated in lamps.
