TIPO Releases “Report on Key Technologies and Patent Analysis for Waste Management in the Global Semiconductor Industry” for Public Reference


ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) is currently one of the hottest topics in the semiconductor industry, closely related to the concept of the circular economy. In the traditional linear economy, resources are obtained, transformed into products, used, and eventually discarded as waste. Managing and recycling waste or reducing resource waste in the manufacturing process is crucial for the semiconductor industry's circular economy (or ESG). For instance, purifying waste resources into semiconductor-grade chemicals and reintegrating them into the manufacturing process to achieve sustainable goals through green practices.

The report focuses on copper recovery, silicon slurry recovery, and hydrogen recovery within waste management in the semiconductor industry. Data is compiled and organized, and relevant patent trends are included within the report. Key technologies have also been selected for in-depth analysis. The aim is to provide insights and inspiration for the development of green circular economy practices in the domestic semiconductor industry.
