SEMATECH Position Statement Regarding The Business Case for the Continued Need of PFOS [PDF]
Abstract: Granting the semiconductor industry an exemption from the restrictions on the use of PFOS, a critical substance in semiconductor manufacturing, is based on the industry’s ability to tightly control and limit total use of the substances. The semiconductor manufacturing industry is attempting to reduce PFOS by developing alternatives.
Sustainable Growth Through Emphasis on ESH Improvements
Abstract: Makes the case for sustainable production in semiconductor manufacturing industry, especially in energy and water conservation, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. By English, L., Mallela, R. Miller, C. and Worth, W.

Abstract: The current TRI toxic chemical list contains 581 individually listed chemicals and 30 chemical categories.
Uses and Air Emissions of Liquid PFC Heat Transfer Fluids from the Electronics Sector [PDF]
Abstract: EPA’s technical report describes perfluorinated carbon (PFC) based heat transfer fluids, their common uses in electronics manufacturing, and estimates emissions to the atmosphere. The heat transfer fluids discussed here are powerful greenhouse gases, often thousands of times stronger than carbon dioxide (CO2), and once released to the atmosphere are estimated to persist for more than two thousand years.
