Nanotechnology and Green EnergyJanuary 10, 2016 at 10:00am
Well, it's 2016 and this year promises to be greener than ever before. However, as we know, it takes a lot of work and a strong commitment to truly realize the benefits of going green.
One area that is expanding in the quest to become a green industry is nanotechnology. In order to qualify for nanotechnology status, your product needs to measure at a length, width or height of around 1 to 100 nanometers. As you can imagine, that doesn't leave a lot of room to incorporate green solutions during the manufacturing process. Currently, only water treatment and very specific power generation can be used to incorporate green technology in this field. However, a concerted effort is being made to include additional areas of manufacturing on a nano level to lessen the carbon footprint of the manufacturing process and leave less toxic waste behind.
Consider this example: For certain one-dimensional nanoproducts, energy intensity (in terms of mass of fossil fuel use per product) is 400 times higher than that of a refrigerator and 700 times that of an automobile ("Environmental impacts of microchip manufacture").
At UDM Systems, we are committed to supporting green manufacturing initiatives. That’s why we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that our Wafer Dicing and Surface Cleaning Solutions, used in semiconductor and photovoltaic manufacturing processes, are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. With no hazardous waste or toxic bi-products in post manufacturing, the solutions manufactured by UDM Systems go a long way toward helping other manufacturers achieve greener standards for their manufacturing processes.
