Treatment of copper contaminated wastewater from CMP applications poses significant challenges. There are a host of technologies (ranging from "back-pad" to point-of-use") that have been employed with varying success. The problem is all the more challenging in an R&D environment where process recipes are changing on a daily basis. The presentation will focus on various combination solutions that have been implemented and the level of effectiveness of each.
