Samsung uses sewage water to quench thirst for semiconductors

Known for its substantial water usage, the semiconductor industry consumes vast quantities of water, with the production of each chip demanding thousands of gallons of ultrapure water.Ultrapure water (UPW) is a term used to describe water subjected to purification processes aimed at removing impurities like fine particles and microorganisms. Through these methods, only the essential hydrogen and oxygen molecules that constitute H2O remain, ensuring the highest level of purity.With the ever-increasing demand for semiconductors exacerbated by the global chip shortage, Samsung Semiconductor is gearing up to enhance its production capacity by expanding its production lines.
