PFAS: Upcoming Regulations and the SEMI Industry Response
PFAS are essential materials of construction for the semiconductor industry, used in critical components, the construction of fabs, and semiconductor tools. Currently there is no viable alternative to PFAS, so how can the semiconductor industry proactively address stringent regulations and ensure sustainable manufacturing practices? 
This online panel discussion opens the series of UPM Community events, bringing together experts to discuss emerging US & EU regulations and emerging industry efforts to ensure the responsible use of PFAS, environmental leadership and efficient manufacturing practices. You will learn from both the users and the suppliers of components and materials, as they explore regulatory risk, the challenges of PFAS monitoring, as well as the opportunities for reuse as part of the life cycle of this vital material.  
Confirmed Key Contributors:
  • Panel Moderator: Bob McIntosh, Principal, Enviro Energy Solutions
  • Kevin Wolfe, Corporate Environmental Engineer: Water Program Owner, Intel
  • Amber Wellman, Director - Fluoropolymers Sustainable Technology, Chemours
  • Katrin Wallheinke, Manager Materials Technology, Georg Fischer
  • Alan Knapp, Sr. Director, Microelectronics, Evoqua
  • Ryan Thomas, Emerging Contaminants Practice Leader, GHD
  • David Kandiyeli, Technical Fellow – Process Engineering, Mega Kinetics Fluid System 
This meeting is your exclusive opportunity to get ahead of imminent PFAS regulations, getting insights into what end users can expect from these revised standards, and how their partners in the supply chain can best position themselves to help meet this challenge.
