Millions of litres of water are used in the manufacture of semiconductors every day for both process and non-process applications. It is an expensive issue and also one which is gaining environmental interest. The semiconductor industry is being pushed to reuse more and more of their water, but this is not an easy task.
Semiconductor wastewater contains toxic solvents, corrosion inhibitors and other organic process chemicals. These contaminants are difficult to reduce, let alone remove to below level of detection.
Regulators have the power to shut down facilities which expel toxins in their effluent streams, and fines of $100m have been incurred by facilities to clean up ground water issues.
Our water treatment solutions are particularly effective at treating some organic chemicals found in semiconductor effluent. We offer you the following services:
