About us

Our story

Our story originated from a bold innovation that wanted to revolutionize the circulation of metals and nutrients. The combination of a new manufacturing method and traditional water treatment solutions has resulted in 4D Scanveger technology (pat. Pend), which enables the recovery of dissolved materials from water streams in an unprecedented way.

The innovation is driven by experts with extensive experience in science and technology. Our team operates in an academic research environment which enables the commercialization of scientific excellence and continuous product development.

OUR MISSION

Value from Waste and Side Streams

Weeefiner is a technological pioneer providing solutions to streamline current industrial processes and to increase utilization of production side streams.

We provide tools to turn low-value and toxic waste streams into valuable products and to reduce environmental impact. With our unique technology, we are able to selectively recover metals and nutrients from process and wastewaters. By returning the recovered materials back to the process, we can take the efficiency of the material cycle to the next level.

 

OUR VISION

Reshaping the material circulation

The circular economy has been on the surface for several years, and there is already many innovative ways to recycle solid materials. However, there have been no effective ways to reuse and recycle soluble metals and nutrients. Often, toxic or low-value components are only disposed of. We want to change this.

Our vision is to be a leader in the closed material cycle, and we believe in a future where waste will be regarded as a new and important source of metals or nutrients.
