||New Opportunities in Ultrapure Water Technologies for the Semi-Conductor Industry: Industry Changes
UPW is a term used to refer to water produced for specific industrial processes where the water is significantly more pure than the typical municipal potable water standards. Definitions of UPW tend to be specific to the needs of the industry in which it is used, such as the semiconductor and pharmaceutical industries. Innovation in UPW is predominantly driven by the semiconductor industry, which requires UPW to produce the microprocessors found phones, computers and the many other ubiquitous electronics that pervade our lives.
With the market for water and wastewater treatment in the semiconductor industry estimated to be over $1 billion and semiconductor demand growing, the UPW market represents a sizable opportunity. The line sizes on microchips are getting smaller, which increases the amount of water required in the process.
