EuroAsia Semiconductor honors ISMI for setting industry direction

AUSTIN, Texas -- The IC Industry Awards named ISMI's ESH Technology Center as the recipient of its 2009 CleanTech Award for green and clean technology at SEMICON Europa in Dresden, Germany on October 7, 2009. The ESH Technology Center was recognized for its efforts to promote green and clean technology at an industry level and provide a neutral, cooperative framework for investigating and implementing environmental solutions.

"This award recognizes that we are not only developing and implementing sustainable, cost-effective manufacturing processes and procedures, but that we have also established a world-wide collaborative environment to collectively assess and tackle the challenges of sustainable semiconductor manufacturing," said Ron Remke, ISMI's ESH program manager and head of the Center. "We share a common commitment, and we believe this approach will enable semiconductor manufacturers to stay productive and profitable, while significantly reducing the environmental footprint of manufacturing operations."

"We're honored to recognize ISMI's ESH Technology Center for changing the way the world thinks about energy and efficiency through its contributions to the cleantech space," said David Ridsdale, Editor in Chief of EuroAsia Semiconductor. "EuroAsia Semiconductor is proud of the EuroAsia IC Industry Awards, and we feel it is important to acknowledge the technological achievements of the industry and the people who drive them with their technical expertise and customer-oriented perspectives."
