Japan – Mitsubishi Gas Chemical (MGC) Company has plans to build a production facility for industrial hydrogen peroxide (IHP) at its Taiwanese subsidiary in order to further develop the company’s business for super-pure hydrogen peroxide (SPHP) used in semiconductor production processes.

SPHP is used primarily as a cleaning, etching and abrading agent in semiconductor wafer and device manufacturing processes. Demand for semiconductors is expected to grow over the long term as they find increasing use due to future advancements in 5G, IOT, cloud computing, AI, and other technologies. Along with this trend, the increasing miniaturisation in semiconductor wiring processes leads to higher demand for greater volumes of SPHP featuring even higher quality.

In Taiwan, many semiconductor foundries (commissioned producers) are building huge semiconductor fabrication plants employing the world’s most advanced technologies one after another. High investments are also planned going forward. These developments cause a sharp increase in demand for high-quality SPHP.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

MGC aims to meet this demand and to produce and distribute SPHP characterised by stable supply, high quality, and excellent cost-competitiveness, and thus to promote business expansion. To this end, the company will develop integrated local production–from IHP raw material (RHP) to SPHP–in which the future IHP production facility will supply RHP to the currently operating SPHP facility.

By strengthening its supply structure, the company aims to contribute to the semiconductor industry growth that will likely continue globally and over the long term.
