- TSMC believes that 3nm technology will lead to products that are worth a trillion dollars within the next five years.
- Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company aims to reach 20% renewable energy to help it reach its sustainability goal of using 100% renewable energy and zero emissions by 2050.
- Suppliers, construction partners, the Taiwan Semiconductor Industry Association, and members of the academia were invited to witness the milestone.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) held a ceremony to celebrate the company’s new 3nm production capacity. The new site is located near Kaohsiung City, in southern Taiwan. The company is a provider of technology services to a variety of customers in the tech industry, including Apple and Nvidia. TSMC is making preparations for its 2nm fabs, which will be located in the Hsinchu and Central Taiwan Science Parks and the six phases of this project are proceeding as planned.
Plans on becoming 100% sustainable
TSMC is working to have a positive impact on the environment by using green manufacturing methods and certifications. By 2030, Fab 18 aims to reach 20% renewable energy to help it reach its sustainability goal of using 100% renewable energy and zero emissions by 2050. Sustainability means being able to continue using natural resources without running out of them in the future, making this one of the most important decisions a company could make for the environment while still staying successful.
At the ceremony, TSMC Chairman Dr. Mark Liu said:
« TSMC is maintaining its technology leadership while investing significantly in Taiwan, continuing to invest and prosper with the environment. This 3nm Volume Production and Capacity Expansion Ceremony demonstrates that we are taking concrete action to develop advanced technology and expand capacity in Taiwan, we aim to grow together with our upstream and downstream supply chain and develop future talent from design to manufacturing, packaging and testing, equipment, and materials to provide the most competitive advanced process technology and reliable capacity for the world and drive technology innovation in the future. »
