Water Restoration in Ireland

Water is essential to the semiconductor manufacturing process. We use ultrapure water to remove impurities from our silicon wafers, and we use industrial and reclaimed water to run our manufacturing facility systems. Over the last two decades, our sustainable water management efforts and partnerships have enabled us to conserve billions of gallons of water. Today in Ireland for example, we return approximately 87% of our water back to our communities. Now, we are broadening our focus to restore 100% of our global water use.
