Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment And Measures To Protect The Earth’s Environment


Over the years, many countries on our planet have made significant efforts to develop their economies, achieving remarkable advancements in a wide variety of industries. However, the progress came with a great cost to the Earth’s environment. The destruction of nature has occurred frequently as a matter of course, to such an extent that in some regions it would hardly be possible to restore n... » read more

Data Center Hyperscaling


As we move in to 2020 it’s clear that every sector of industry, including the semiconductor industry, will have a responsibility to address growing environmental concerns. We should be aware that as our sector underpins the growth in AI, 5G telecommunications, crypto-currency and high performance compute applications, it is predicted that by 2030 energy consumption attributable to data center... » read more

Sustainability Saves Water, Too


After energy (discussed in Part 2 of this series), water is the largest fab input and the largest contributor to fab waste. Yet tools for analyzing a fab’s water footprint are generally less mature than tools for analyzing emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases. In part, this may be because water consumption is primarily a local issue, while greenhouse gas emissions are a global c... » read more

Next-Generation Sustainability Gets More Challenging


The semiconductor industry has made major progress on reducing energy usage and water consumption, and effectively abating its emissions, as companies made sustainability a core requirement in their design of new processes and tools. But it’s about to get considerably harder. That means more opportunities to add value with innovative technologies, and also more need for collaboration. Next... » read more
