Environmental Sustainability


Conserve and Preserve the Environment

SSMC is the first waferfab in Singapore to adopt a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) abatement system

  • This is over and above the statutory requirement.
  • VOCs are absorbed and converted into water vapor and CO2, at harmless levels.
  • Cleaner air is discharged back to the environment.

SSMC is also the first few waferfabs in Singapore to use Newater in our manufacturing processes.

  • The use of reclaimed water is very significant in the conservation of the environment.
  • Potable water usage is reduced by about one Olympic-sized pool everyday.
  • Chemical usage has been reduced due to the ease of conversion of Newater to Ultrapure water.

Contribute to Our Community at large as an Exemplary Corporate Citizen

  • Academic internship opportunities for local Polytechnic and University students.
  • Book prizes and post-graduate scholarships for talented tertiary students.
  • Collaboration opportunities with tertiary institutions on research projects.
  • WaferFab Familiarization Workshops at no cost to the interested tertiary students.
  • Open-houses.
  • Work closely with the nearby Community Development Councils on job opportunities for locals.
  • Organize yearly Blood Donation Drive with the help of Singapore Red Cross Society.
  • Partner with Student Care Services (Hougang Branch) to organize activities during school holidays

We encourage & acknowledge our staff for their involvement in achieving our goal of becoming a responsible corporate citizen. Such involvement is not only to contribute to the environment and community, but also in the process, cultivating a rewarding relationship and having a wholesome personal development for our staff and our social partners.
