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 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.


ThEx-Award 2019

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.
