About Us

As of 2023, iongenics is the first company that TÜPRAŞ Ventures A.Ş. has invested in, and the first company in Türkiye to receive investment in electrolyzer systems. With the support of TÜPRAŞ Ventures A.Ş., we contribute to the green transformation by developing electrolyzer systems.

iongenics develops and manufactures energy efficient, safe, and modular systems for green hydrogen generation. The systems are based on PEM electrolyzers which utilize a proprietary catalyst technology. iongenics electrolyzers can be used in a wide range of applications such as power generation, metal processing, energy storage, hydrogenation reactors, fuel cells and laser cutting.
