Iver Anderson joins National Inventors Hall of Fame

February 7, 2017

Iver Eric Anderson joins National Inventors Hall of FameThe National Inventors Hall of Fame, in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, has announced that Iver Anderson has joined the 2017 class of Inductees. Anderson is one of 15 inductees selected for 2017, all of whom are said to have contributed to society in meaningful ways through their ground-breaking, patented innovations.

Anderson, a scientist at Ames Laboratory, Iowa, was selected for his role in the creation of lead-free solder. As a result of Anderson’s discovery, it is estimated that well over 50,000 tons of lead per year will no longer be released into the environment.

“Each year, we induct a new class of industry pioneers into the National Inventors Hall of Fame who have conceived and patented innovations to further our nation, and this year’s class is no exception,” stated National Inventors Hall of Fame CEO, Mike Oister. “This year’s Inductees have provided solutions to life’s common problems and as a result, they’ve enhanced our lives.”

Anderson received his B.S. in metallurgical engineering from Michigan Technological University, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is an internationally recognised authority on lead-free solder and his research includes Powder Metallurgy, rapid solidification and joining problems. Anderson holds 39 patents.
