Water use

TI recognizes that water is a precious resource – yet it is crucial to semiconductor manufacturing, which is why the company conserves and reuses water and works to preserve water quality to every extent possible.

We manage three types of water use globally that constitute our water footprint:
  • Nonmanufacturing water: used in restrooms, irrigation, water fountains and cafeterias.
  • Manufacturing water: used in rinse-bath fills and other processes.
  • Manufacturing support water: used in process exhaust and cooling systems.
In order to conserve this natural resource, maintain water quality, and reduce our utility expense, we routinely identify and invest in new ways to reduce our consumption of water, reduce and/or segregate chemicals discharged, and recycle and reuse water.
