A collaboration has been formed between International SEMATECH Manufacturing Initiative (ISMI) and Edwards Vacuum to develop data-driven solutions in areas such as energy and resource conservation, chemical management, as well as semiconductor industry response to climate change factors. The work is be carried out at ISMI’s ESH Technology Center, which was formed in 2009.
“At the Center we are working through all levels of the supply chain to address the industry’s need for sustainability, productivity, and cost-effectiveness,” noted Ron Remke, ISMI’s ESH program manager and head of the Center. “We look forward to working closely with Edwards in an effort to keep our industry’s manufacturing businesses productive, profitable, and sustainable, while significantly reducing the environmental footprint of manufacturing operations.”
Scott Balaguer, General Manager, America's Edwards stated, “The data we will derive from this partnership will help us develop new environmentally-friendly capabilities for our products.”
Within the Center, Edwards will collaborate with hundreds of ESH experts and consultants from around the world.
