Ultrapure water & wastewater solutions to meet quality & sustainability goals
Production of high-purity specialty chemicals used in the fabrication of semiconductors has been evolving to meet increasing quality needs of the device manufacturers. What was acceptable several years ago is now unacceptable in terms of allowable contaminant concentrations. Since these chemicals are aqueous based, the primary target for reducing contamination is the UPW quality. Metals (including boron), silica, TOC and particles are the most common contaminants these producers are targeting.
Most chemical producers already have systems and infrastructure in place where modifications and additional technologies can be implemented to reduce contaminants. However, this is not as easy as it seems, since it can be challenging to conduct a retrofit while keeping up with production demands.
Wastewater challenges that chemical producers face include aging equipment, increased production, new products with different chemistries, limitations on city water intake, limitations on facility outfall volume or regulated species and corporate sustainability goals.
Whether it’s a new production facility or an existing one, Evoqua can provide UPW and wastewater solutions to ensure high-purity specialty chemical producers meet their UPW quality, wastewater discharge and sustainability goals.
