• Aerobic Biodegradation of spent TMAH Photoresist solution

    Go Green

    And save on disposal costs

    Pilot technology for aerobic Biodegradation of spent TMAH Photoresist solution in Semiconductor industries.

Life Bitmaps

Purpose and objectives of the project

The LIFE BITMAPS project will establish a pilot plant that will demonstrate a new and never-before attempted process for the treatment of effluents from electronics and semiconductor manufacturing. The project will contribute to the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC by introducing more efficient treatment technologies that will help reduce Tetramethylammonium hydroxide (TMAH) pollution at source. By recycling wastewater, it will also demonstrate the application in practice of the circular economy priority of water reuse and savings in industrial processes.
