Samsung Electronics Hwaseong campus, one of its semiconductor production facilities in South Korea, has received the Carbon Trust Standard for Water certification.

It is the first time that a semiconductor site received the certification, Samsung said.

It is given to organizations that has the best practice approach in measuring and managing their water use.

Samsung said its water management practices focus on the “3R” __ reduce, reuse and recycle.

The conglomerate also utilizes a water filtration technology called membrane process to reuse wastewater.

Hwaseong campus consumed an average of 13.24 billion gallons of water per year between 2017 and 2018. But in 2019 this was dropped to 12.97 billion gallons, Samsung said. The water conserved is enough to accommodate 200,000 people in South Korea for a month, the company said.

Samsung said it has dedicated experts that focus on making its water treatment technologies green.

The company uses electro-deionization process instead of chemical treatment. It also has energy-saving equipment for the ultra-pure waters used in semiconductor production.
