Public/regulatory policy demands that chemicals identified for potential hazards should be prohibited from use in commerce and products in the consumer market. At the same time the future for semiconductor manufacturing requires the use of novel and unique chemicals that have a high probability of exhibiting those same potential hazards of concern. This presentation will discuss both sides of the argument on precautionary policy and hazard elimination with respect to semiconductor technology needs of the future.
