Ivanhoe Industries has supplied foam control agents to fermentation applications for over 40 years. As a manufacturer of foam control agents, Ivanhoe is unique in that we have the ability to manufacture our own defoaming actives such as non-ionic surfactants, silicone compounds, and hydrophobic silica. This capability allows Ivanhoe to innovate beyond components that are readily available in the open market and to custom design foam control agents for any fermentation application.

We employ an experienced regulatory team that ensures our defoamer products are compliant for the industries that utilize our products. Our R&D chemists work closely with our regulatory team, not only for compliance but also to gain regulatory approvals for the new defoaming formulations that we develop. This coordination often provides Ivanhoe with a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Our custom development capabilities are complimented by our application testing of fermentation foam control agents. Ivanhoe has the ability to simulate conditions in fermentation reactions in our lab to screen new defoamer formulations. When possible, Ivanhoe conducts customer site testing with portable equipment to test our foam control agents in live fermentation broth and immediately share performance data with our customers.

Our goal for fermentation applications is to reduce overall defoamer use while increasing fermentation batch yields.
