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.
