These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in the field, other affiliations and contributions to their communities. All honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP’s annual award gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements. 

“Unique, extraordinary, pure genius and out of the box” are just some of the words that first come to mind when describing Sylvain & Mark. The Dynamic Duo is in a class of its own and we are honored to have them both with our organization as our “Top Executives of the Year in the Green Energy Industry.” The pair has demonstrated success with their dynamic results-driven leadership, tremendous foresight, extraordinary knowledge and countless accomplishments.  

With over two decades of professional experience in the Green Energy industry, Sylvain & Mark have certainly proven themselves as accomplished professionals and experts in a revolutionary industry.  

Litecristal is a patented technology, invented in France at Batz sur Mer near Guérande, at Sylvain’s sister’s house Anna Gianasso.  It is produced in several countries, but the major Green Factories are in France near Avignon and in Tunisia where glow in the dark textiles are printed at Sfax. 

In Egypt, Sylvain under the name of Howard Jones has written a book Extraordinary Stories in Egypt in which one he tries to demonstrate that the old Egyptians new about glow in the dark products to write and paint in the dark when making tombs and secret chambers. 

Litecristal is a luminescent sea salt that glows in the dark for a long time over 12 hours after being exposed to a light source like the sun, office lighting, or a halogen lamp.  The sample only needs to be illuminated for a short time from 10 seconds to a minute. The system is like an on/off light system.  It can be used indoors to provide light in a dark room.  It may be applied to many types of materials and has numerous applications in natural healing, art, building materials, safety signage, etc. The functional parts of the system are natural luminating crystals that are fixed on salt crystals and there are 3 types which glow green, turquoise or blue. Because this unique crystal lights up from using natural elements like the sun, this technology is changing the world. The pair have incorporated this technology in paints for artists to use in their artwork, in jewelry, in lighting up swimming pools, hotels, wellness centers and spas, have incorporated making a relaxation room using the Litecristal.  
Countries that do not have a good power source of electricity can use Litecristal for lighting their homes, offices, roadways, highway signage, basically any surface that you need to be seen in the dark.  Products of Litecristal include Sidel, MMB, Retrolite, and Snow proof Litecristal. These products are non-toxic and have no radioactivity as they are made using inert materials. The possibilities for usage of this material are endless. 

Guido De Rijck, of G-U-I-D-O Surfaces’ company for Artistic Green surfaces, is an Internationally Renowned Top Designer and an honored member of IAOTP.  He has restored Pablo Picasso’s house in France and Calvin Klein’s home in Miami.  He has teamed up with Litecristal USA and uses the material in his works.

The President of IAOTP Stephanie Cirami stated that “Choosing Sylvain & Mark was an easy decision for our panel to make. They came highly recommended and were nominated by our member & Top Designer of the Year Guido De Rijck, who has worked closely with the pair. We are excited to spend time with them at our Annual Awards Gala this Year and know we will be seeing more great things from these two.”
