Wonik Holding’s scrubber for semiconductor production was going through Samsung’s quality test, TheElec has learned.

The company’s equipment was also going through a quality test by a South Korean 8-inch chip foundry, sources also said.

Wonik Holdings wants to focus on high-end scrubbers such as those based on plasma, they said.

Scrubbers, or gas scrubbers, are used to purify toxic gasses emitted during chip and display panel production.

Due to increasing environmental concerns and ESG initiatives by governments, more chip companies are seeking high-end scrubbers.

Combustion scrubbers were mostly used in mast industrial settings but this would emit carbon so more companies are seeking to change theirs to plasma-based variations.

Electric arcs are used to form plasma that processes the toxic gases.

Wonik’s entry into the scrubber market will likely upset existing players GST, Unisem, CSK, and others as Wonik is already a larger player in the equipment market and Samsung is its main customer.

Wonik also already provides gas supply and monitoring systems that can be paired with the scrubbers.

A Wonik Holdings spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.
