Anfiro Inc., a water technology startup closed $1.1 million seed round with support from PRIME Coalition – Cambridge – Maine

The financing enables the development of Anfiro’s energy-efficient water membranes shown to reduce the cost and energy of desalination and water treatment, providing affordable freshwater and reducing greenhouse gas emissions at global scale. The technology was developed at and licensed from Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame to Anfiro.

As the climate changes and existing freshwater sources are stressed, freshwater scarcity is only expected to worsen in the years ahead. Anfiro is attacking this problem by developing novel water filtration membranes that reduce the cost of water treatment. Anfiro’s next-generation membranes can [
