Enhancing Efficiency and Sustainability in Semiconductor Manufacturing Processes

How it Works

Efficient Copper Recovery

ElectraMet technology efficiently extracts copper from both concentrated and dilute metal waste streams, including chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) and WETS effluent. ElectraMet assures discharge compliance and optimum copper value return, while decreasing scope 3 GHG emissions. ElectraMet’s process produces pure copper to enable circularity. 

Peroxide and Ozone Removal

ElectraMet has delivered a significant advancement in peroxide and ozone removal. For Microelectronics, these chemistries are critical for cleaning, removal, and etching processes, but they risk downstream asset health. ElectraMet’s chemical-free, self-regenerating solution significantly reduces both physical and carbon footprint.

Water Reuse and Process Consistency

Sustainability in the microelectronics sector is not possible without water conservation and reuse. With targeted removal and no byproducts, ElectraMet promotes rinse bath and wastewater reuse to enable sustainability. Onboard analytics provide critical information to drive operational efficiencies and effluent quality.

The ElectraMet Solution

ElectraMet offers an innovative and modular solution to address these challenges. Using an electrochemical process, ElectraMet’s automated system selectively targets and removes specific metals and impurities from the leachate. This cutting-edge technology can be integrated seamlessly into existing processes, offering several key advantages:
