In February, Azuvia chose Avignon for its base. This start-up offers natural swimming pool treatments thanks to an innovative greenhouse filter system. Azuvia has already won many awards for innovation. The company combines soilless cultivation with decontamination, using plants (hydroponics & phytoremediation), in order to eliminate the use of chemicals for pool maintenance.
An installation in CREATIVA
This start-up, which was set up by 4 young engineers from Paris, got in touch with VPA for the first time in November 2019.
After a successful initial meeting, the company chose to base itself within a large workshop at the CREATIVA hothouse for entrepreneurs. This was a quick decision thanks to the involvement of all the economic stakeholders in the region alongside VPA, starting with the Aqua-Valley centre of excellence, which Azuvia is now a member of, as well as Grand Avignon, which allowed the company to set up a pilot in a nearby area, at the very heart of Agroparc, the Avignon technopôle.
The addition of this exciting new company will create a dozen jobs over 3 years.
