▲ A model of Samsung’s Regenerative Catalyst System is shown on display, exemplifying Samsung efforts to create a more sustainable semiconductor production.
The showcase also featured Samsung Semiconductor’s first ever sustainability zone at CES. Under the key slogan of, "Technology that makes technology sustainable," the space introduced Samsung Semiconductor's four main environmental goals as well as Samsung’s Regenerative Catalyst System (RCS), the technology targeted to set the environmental efforts into action.
Unique to the industry, RCS is Samsung Semiconductor's specialized technology that increases Samsung’s greenhouse gas treatment rate by utilizing durable catalysts and raising the efficacy of gas treatment to 95%. Using RCS as a model, Samsung Semiconductor shared its vision for a cleaner, more environmentally sustainable future for the semiconductor industry.
Samsung Semiconductor also introduced Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) project as a part of the company’s sustainability efforts. LCA is used to minimize the environmental impact through the entire life cycle of a product, from raw materials extraction stage to production, application, and disposal.
Alongside detailed sustainability measures, Samsung also proudly displayed the industry’s awards it had received for its efforts. Recognized for the company’s sustainable practices, Samsung was the industry’s first recipient of the Product Carbon Footprint Certification and the Carbon Reduction Certification.
Samsung’s Semiconductor Technology Showcase offered CES attendees a glimpse into the future of the memory semiconductors and presented a blueprint to create a more sustainable semiconductor industry.
The semiconductor market has seen a significant rise recently, and that growth is projected to continue as sectors like automotive, AI and data centers gain more momentum. Powering those industries will require highly advanced and efficient semiconductors, sustainably produced. Samsung is dedicated to continuing to innovate, to creating technologies that better meet our customers’ needs.
