The International SEMATECH Manufacturing Initiative (ISMI) has recognized Tokyo Electron Limited (TEL) and Applied Materials, Inc. for their dedication to resource conservation in the semiconductor equipment industry.
In appreciation of their excellence in equipment energy reduction, plaques were presented to Mr. Satoshi Saito, director EHS, TEL, and Dr. Stanley Hughes, product safety director, Applied Materials, during a reception that followed the recent Equipment Energy and Utility Reduction Workshop sponsored by ISMI. The workshop was held in conjunction with ISMI Manufacturing Week, October 20-23 in Austin, Texas.
Sandro Pampel, ISMI’s ESH Energy Conservation Program leader and workshop organizer said, “This year’s recipients demonstrated a sustained commitment to resource conservation for semiconductor manufacturing equipment.”
Pampel added, “These companies have implemented effective internal processes to characterize and improve the environmental performance of their products, influenced industry standards for resource conservation, and demonstrated improved performance and roadmaps for their 300 mm semiconductor manufacturing equipment product lines.”
Companies who are recognized by ISMI for equipment energy reduction are suppliers who have significantly and consistently contributed to process equipment energy conservation initiatives.
