Home > Press > MATHESON Joins ISMI’s ESH Technology Center: First material supplier to partner with ISMI on developing eco-friendly capabilities

Abstract:
The International SEMATECH Manufacturing Initiative (ISMI), the global consortium of the world's major semiconductor manufacturers, today announced that MATHESON, a global manufacturer and supplier of electronics and specialty materials and equipment, has joined ISMI's Environment, Safety and Health (ESH) Technology Center.

MATHESON Joins ISMI’s ESH Technology Center: First material supplier to partner with ISMI on developing eco-friendly capabilities

Albany, NY and Basking Ridge, NJ | Posted on May 16th, 2011

Engineers from the two companies will collaborate to develop data-driven environmental and sustainable solutions in areas such as energy and resource conservation, chemical management, and industry response to climate change at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's (CNSE) Albany NanoTech Complex.

"We are very excited to become a member of ISMI, and to participate in its ESH program," said Bill Kroll, Chairman and CEO, MATHESON. "MATHESON has gleaned a keen understanding and sharp perspective of the total solutions required to make businesses and operations truly sustainable as a result of our work in supporting the environmental management systems and programs of our customers in electronics, chemicals, manufacturing, and various other sectors. We see this partnership as providing MATHESON access to resources and data that will help us develop new environmentally-friendly products and more far reaching sustainability initiatives which are focused on contributing to shareholder value for our customers and MATHESON."

"We welcome MATHESON as the first materials supplier to ISMI's ESH Center," said Sanjay Rajguru, director of ISMI. "We look forward to working closely with MATHESON in a collaborative effort to keep our industry productive, profitable, and sustainable, while continuously improving the environmental footprint of manufacturing operations."

The SEMATECH and ISMI ESH program has been pursuing energy and resource conservation for over 15 years and has published several dozen reports and presentations which collectively document best practices for energy and resource conservation. For example, ISMI was successful in providing proven process data (etch rate, uniformity, particles) to enable member companies to implement vacuum pump idle mode savings in their own facilities with confidence.

In 2009, ISMI launched its ESH Technology Center to further address the energy and resource conservation needs of the semiconductor industry. The center is the industry's first global collaborative research effort dedicated to finding and implementing green technologies that reduce energy consumption, lower costs, and promote greater productivity in manufacturing. In 2011, ISMI partnered with CNSE to create the world's first NanoHealth and Safety Center (NSC), headquartered at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex.
