qCoat GmbH, founded on May 8, 2019, is a cleantech startup spun off from the Leibniz Institute for Surface Modification (IOM) in Leipzig, Germany. The company focuses on sustainable and resource-efficient water purification through membrane refinement. Their patented process for stable functionalization of polymer membranes, developed at IOM, addresses the issue of membrane fouling in filtration processes. Their technology significantly reduces membrane clogging, leading to lower annual operational costs and overall filtration system expenses. This innovation contributes to climate and environmental protection across various fluid phase filtration processes. qCoat GmbH's technological foundation has earned accolades, including the Kurt-Schwabe-Prize and the IQ Innovation Prize.
