About Anferra

Anferra comes from Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship and is incubated by Chalmers Ventures. Anferra promotes circularity in the steel and chemical industries by turning waste into valuable resources. We help machining companies increase their recycling rate by targeting a waste fraction that is today largely landfilled, called steel grinding swarf. Our patent-pending process can transform this waste into a water treatment chemical, iron chloride, achieving purity levels that meet European standards for treating drinking water. The other contents in the grinding swarf can be separated out and used in stainless steel production.  In addition, the process generates hydrogen gas as a byproduct, which we see great potential in utilizing as energy.
