by

Created in Switzerland, Aquama® offers an innovative solution for cleaning with electrified water and salt. Thanks to this technology, professionals and individuals benefit from  a detergent and disinfectant solution, at a competitive price and without toxicity. A revolution that allows both to limit costs and reduce pollution.

ECOLOGY, ECONOMY AND EFFICIENCY

Born in the hospitality sector, Willy Lionel Pomathios began to take an interest in ecology 10 years ago. In 2013, thanks to his collaboration with Aquama® engineers, he created a detergent and disinfectant solution consisting only of water, salt and electricity. Thanks to this hydrolysis process, water is rid of all  chemical and toxic substances, a real revolution in the field of cleaning.

100% biodegradable Solution and more effective than Bleach, Aquama® prevents both water pollution and the use of commonly used hazardous products. “My goal is to revolutionize the ecology market by reconciling ecology and economy: I call this econology. In fact, in addition to the ecological interest, developing a cost-effective solution allows to optimize the cost of  our customers. Our values are the 3 E: Ecology, Economy and Efficiency,” explains Willy Lionel Pomathios, founder of Aquama®.

FOR CLEANING PROFESSIONALS… 


With the Geneve Airport  as  its  first  customer,  Aquama®  is now  used  by  a dozen cleaning companies to clean the floors of the buildings and the  interior  of the planes .  The  principle?  Make available fully  connected  machines,  the  Falcon  R®,  which  allows the electrolysis of water.  Every  year,  48  mega  tons  of toxic  products  are  released  worldwide,  outside  Africa  and outside China.  At  the Geneva  airport  alone,  the  8 machines  implanted allow to replace 15  tons  of  chemistry. This  solution also  reduces the costs associated with cleaning: purchases, storage  of  hazardous  products  and  recycling. Once  the  machines  are  installed,  the  company  pays  for the  litter according  to  its  consumption,  at  a  price  of  23  cents  Swiss francs  per  liter line while  having  the  possibility  to resell it to  its suppliers.  A  cost-effective option  chosen  by  the  Geneva  airport  to the  cleaning  companies  that  operate  on  the  site. 


… AND FOR INDIVIDUALS

To achieve this technological level, Aquama® has carried out several years of research. The result? Internally controlled technology, flexible and unique on the market. For example, machines are easily updated  remotely. To disseminate its innovation to as many people as possible, Aquama® has developed the Freedom®, a small 30 cm machine dedicated to individuals. “Our business customers are more attracted to financial gains, whereas  individuals are more sensitive to our environmental impact. Our ambition is to create a true community of users who share our values and can, in the long term, pool machines on a scale, for example, of a neighborhood. To support this approach, we develop a mobile application to map the machines available in a territory and to keep  track of consumption. In Switzerland, the brand has attracted big names such as Easyjet, Tesla or Manor as well as 5,000 private customers. In France, more than 1,000 nurseries are now equipped and soon, Aquama® will supply large distributors who wish to offer this service to their customers.

 

Today, Aquama® assembles a team of 28 people in Switzerland, France and Germany. Its goal is to continue its development internationally, on the American continent, in Africa and in the Middle East. With a satisfaction rate of 99%, Aquama® will soon release a new machine, the Falcon XS, destined for  SMEs in France and Italy. To finance its projects, Aquama® is also preparing a fund raising of 5 to 7 million euros in the course of the year 2019. “We all have the ability to change and create econological success. Thanks to solutions like Aquama®, the future becomes a reality ” says Willy Lionel Pomathios.
