The Semiconductor PFAS Consortium is an international group of semiconductor industry stakeholders organized under the auspices of the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) to collect the technical data needed to formulate an industry approach to per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) based on science. The scope includes:

  • Gathering and vetting of technical PFAS-use information relevant to the semiconductor industry
  • Developing socioeconomic impact analyses
  • Providing tools needed to support industry commitments to track and reduce PFAS
  • Identifying research needs and drafting plans to address them appropriately
  • Developing technical reports, presentations, and position papers

The Consortium is not focused on advocacy.

The consortium membership is comprised of semiconductor manufacturers and members of the supply chain including chemical, material, and equipment suppliers. For more information, contact the PFAS Consortium at PFASConsortium@semiconductors.org.
