GREEN INDUSTRY HAS NATURALLY FOUND ITS PLACE IN AUVERGNE, WHERE ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS IS STRONGER THAN ELSEWHERE.
An extremely diverse industry
Auvergne brings together more than 250 green-industry companies. The environmental technology sector is in full expansion.
Auvergne boasts companies particularly versed in :
- Renewable energy technologies, Auversun being a good example, a solar panel producer, or the company EO2, which specializes in granulated word and has the largest factory in France
- the study, decontamination and treatment of soil with companies like Biobasic Environnement, Sol Solutions, or MS
- waste processing, notably that of W3E (waste electronic and electrical equipment) with a company like Environnement Recycling
The means committed to these companies’ success
The industry benefits from a cluster, called E2IA (green industries for Auvergne innovation), which gathers together regional actors of the environmental industry: Small-and –medium businesses/industries, research labs or institutions. 10 distinct post-baccalaureate training programs offered in the region allow companies in the industry to draw upon a qualified workforce, whether it be via the 2 regional universities or the ‘Grandes Ecoles’ (Polytech, Vet’agro Sup, ENSC).
And finally, companies can benefit from the large regional research centers, namely ENGREF, CEMAGREF, or INRA.
