Head of construction, authorized officer
Professional certified room air cleaners ensure maximum safety through filter technology that has been tried and tested for decades and is used in clean rooms, e.g. in operating theatres and pharmaceutical production or in hygienic areas such as food production. Thanks to optimal sound insulation, our customers also benefit from whisper-quiet continuous operation.
HEPA H14 special filters are used. These filters ensure the filtration of the smallest nanoparticles, such as viruses, bacteria, pollen, fine dust, etc. An economical continuous operation of the units is ensured by a long filter service life and the use of energy-saving fans.
Our customers from all sectors, e.g. schools, day-care centres, doctors‹ surgeries, pharmacies and the retail trade, are already benefiting from healthy, clean air. This is also the case for Wacker Biotech GmbH as a manufacturer of medical products. It has purchased these certified air purifiers for its offices and has proven with its own measuring technology that after 30 minutes all aerosols relevant to infection are almost completely filtered out. This reduces the risk of infection by up to 99 %. Comparable results can also be achieved at your facility. The fact that IVOC‑X is regarded as a specialist for air quality and your most important asset, namely your personal health, was recently certified by the ThEx Award.
How interesting is that for you? If you care about your health and that of your fellow human beings, simply contact us.
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.
Founder Transfer Award 2019
from Friedrich Schiller University (FSU) and Ernst Abbe University (EAH) was awarded to IVOC‑X GmbH in its first year of existence. The jury was impressed by the technology, which enables completely new products for energy-optimised air pollution control with high social relevance and environmental protection.
IQ Innovation Award Central Germany 2020
IVOC‑X made it among the best innovations in the energy/environment cluster and was nominated for the IQ Award among the best 6 participants.
Industrial Energy Efficiency Award of the Hannover Messe 2020
In an international comparison, the IVOC‑X team was able to convince the jury of high-ranking industry experts and the independent market research company EUPD Research with their innovative thermal-catalytic air purification systems. For this, they won the Industrial Energy Efficiency Award at Hannover Messe 2020 in the Start-up category.
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.
