Abstract

Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP) system is an essential technology to produce the recent high performance electronic devices. One of the problematic point of CMP processes is its high cost. Another is its heavy load to the environment. The principal cause of these two points is that this system needs to be poured and flushed by slurry continuously. One method to solve this problem is to recycle and reuse waste slurry used in this system. This research is targeted on slurry for "Tungsten CMP" which is particularly problematic for its high cost. Untreated slurry from "Tungsten CMP" contains water and metal. These contents will degrade the processing characteristics of slurry. Examinations were conducted to ascertain if recycling waste slurry is possible by eliminating contained water and metals. It was concluded that slurry can be recycled by abstracting water by ceramic filter and metal by ion-exchange. It was also verified that this recycled slurry reserved equivalent processing characteristic as the new slurry.
