When it comes to environmental performance, compliance is the minimum. We go beyond compliance to make a difference

Managing the raw materials we use and the products we make in a safe and environmentally responsible manner is important. It is also important for our customers to know that the products they buy from Hemlock Semiconductor Group are accurately described, properly packaged, and documented to identify any hazards or potential safe use issues. We have a drive toward zero waste and emissions.

Here are the ways we are making a difference for the environment and conserving natural resources:

  • Responsible Care® – We actively participate in this American Chemistry Council's comprehensive initiative and fulfill all the required reporting annually. Hemlock Semiconductor received the RC14001 certificate in 2008 along with the ISO 14001 certificate for environmental management.
  • Energy reduction – An important part of our resource conservation program is an aggressive energy reduction goal that targets significant reductions in our average greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This program includes a plan to reduce natural gas consumption by using heat recovered from the manufacturing process to generate steam.
  • Hazardous waste reduction – Our goal to reduce hazardous waste generation rates is a key initiative in our commitment to the communities where we live and work.
  • Water conservation – We plan to reduce our dependence on city water by recovering process water (normally discharged) to use as make-up water for cooling towers. Hemlock Semiconductor continues to increase the amount of material recycled.
  • Recycling – If it can be recycled, we do it. We have been successful in recycling a significant percentage of our waste materials. Since 2008, we have recycled an average of 4 million kilograms of materials per year.
