IVOC‑X GmbH develops, produces and distributes innovative industrial, thermal-catalytic air purification systems for the reduction of gaseous air pollutants and odours in process exhaust air. IVOC‑X (Innovative Volatile Organic Compound – OXidation) stands for our sustainable technology, products and vision, with the aim of establishing IVOC‑X® as the leading brand for purified air and for improved quality of life.
As an innovative mechanical engineering company in the air technology market, the development, production and marketing of highly efficient catalytic air purification systems are the focus of our work. The range of services is supplemented by services such as consulting, pollutant analysis, service and maintenance. Our customers are companies in the form of end users as well as plant manufacturers who release VOCs (e.g. solvents, vapours or odorous substances) in their production processes.
The founding team
The IVOC‑X GmbH was founded on 21.02.2019 in Jena from the IVOC‑X GbR. The team has many years of international experience in the field of air purification systems.
The prize for founders from Thuringia is awarded annually in three categories. The team of founders prevailed against 85 other start-ups in the category of idea owners and received the highly endowed 1st prize.
Founder Transfer Prize
from Friedrich Schiller University and Ernst Abbe University, IVOC‑X GmbH received the award in its first year of existence. The jury was convinced by the technology, which enables completely new products with high relevance for the protection of the environment and thus also for society through energy-optimized air pollution control.
Through our membership in professional associations as well as cooperation with renowned research institutes and partner companies, we keep our comprehensive expertise in the field of exhaust air purification technology always up-to-date and at the same time maintain an understanding of our customers‹ needs.
The German Engineering Federation (VDMA) represents the interests of the capital goods industry, which is heavily influenced by medium-sized companies, vis-à-vis political and social institutions as well as business, science, authorities and the media. In this way, IVOC‑X ensures the exchange of information about current and upcoming legal adjustments and enables the cooperation of new specifications in the working groups on air pollution control, surface technology and additive manufacturing as well as the exchange of information via the network. The VDMA offers further training measures especially for the mechanical engineering sector.
The VDE Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies combines science, standardization and product testing and is particularly committed to the promotion of research and young talent as well as consumer protection. The association focuses on Cyber Security, Energy, Industry, Mobility, Smart Cities, Health and Living. Through its participation in the VDE, IVOC‑X GmbH secures the necessary information required to comply with legal regulations in the field of electronics and expands its network in the field of electrical engineering and the manufacture of electrical components and systems.
The Ernst Abbe University (EAH) Jena, founded in 1991, is characterized by a practice-oriented range of courses and many cooperations with industry. Together with the Scitec department, IVOC‑X researches new manufacturing processes and analyses the processes with regard to pollutant emissions. The focus is on 3D printing, laser material processing and precision manufacturing.
The Thuringian Centre for Additive Technologies offers expertise and specialists for the development of additive technologies and the application of corresponding processes. Within this network, IVOC‑X is the expert and consultant on the subject of emissions and their treatment in 3D printing (AM).
The photonics network OptoNet e.V. represents the interests of more than 100 players in the Thuringian photonics industry and offers a lively platform for networking, exchange and cooperation. The IVOC‑X technology is mainly used in the areas of cleaning optical elements, improvement of clean room requirements through VOC reduction in addition to particles and in all machining and processing operations as well as laser material processing and surface technology with UV.
FTS (flexo technology service) GmbH offers a full service for care, maintenance, retrofit, consulting and sales of flexographic printing machines of the latest generation and relies on systems of IVOC‑X GmbH in the field of air pollution control.
