 Speech Abstract:

 Safety and Particulate Management of Process Effluents

Advanced semiconductor process utilizes more and more exotic chemicals and exposes to Environmental, Safety, and Health (ESH) rick for Fab engineers. Equipment suppliers develop process chambers (CVD, Furnace, ALD etc.) mainly focus on thin film quality, functionality; wafer through put; and chamber uptime. Process effluent containing hazardous chemical, solid particulate will be treated by local scrubber at SubFab. Missing proper resolution in between.

This presentation will show an innovative solution using plasma pre-treatment technology to covert energetic byproducts into gaseous and/or stable solid final products resulting SubFab safety and PM cycle improvement. Pre-pump plasma units  are scalable solutions which provide a “plug and play” installation.
