Applied Materials has become the newest member of the Environment, Safety and Health (ESH) Technology Center, part of International SEMATECH Manufacturing Initiative (ISMI). Applied is teaming with the centre to improve the environmental performance of its products and processes.
“Applied Materials is excited about expanding our collaboration with ISMI and its member companies to enhance the industry’s sustainability initiatives,” said Bruce Klafter, senior director for EHS and Sustainability at Applied Materials. “Using technological innovation, action and commitment, we can work together to find solutions to improving the environmental performance of our products and processes.”
The EHS Technology Center was formed in 2009 to provide a broad-based, collaborative platform for developing better environmental practices for the industry, with goals of increasing efficiency and reducing costs in semiconductor operations.
