hydrogen peroxide in electronics and semiconductor manufacturing

Hardware manufacturing and raw material recycling


Digital technologies and electronic components are becoming increasingly important in industry and society. Valuable raw materials are needed for their production, the use and recycling of which still offer a lot of potential for a more sustainable handling of the resource situation in production processes. On the one hand, hydrogen peroxide contributes to the efficient manufacturing of innovative hardware technologies such as semiconductors, printed circuit boards, and solar panels and, on the other hand, enables the recovery of valuable raw materials, such as in the recycling of batteries.

hydrogen peroxide for recovering of lithium and cobalt in the leaching process of lithium-ion battries

Battery Recycling

The global market for lithium-ion batteries, which are widely used in electric-powered vehicles, PCs, tablets and cell phones, is growing rapidly. Hydrogen peroxide is added to the leaching process of LiB recycling technology and helps recover the valuable and rare metals lithium and cobalt.

high purity hydrogen peroxide is a key chemical in the etching of printed circuit boards

Semiconductor and Electronics Manufacturing

PERTRONIC® H2O2 meets the stringent purity and stability requirements of the electronics industry. Therefore, it is well suited as an oxidizing agent for critical wafer cleaning and surface conditioning in transistor or copper formation. High purity hydrogen peroxide is used in the etching of printed circuit boards.

hydrogen peroxide in solar panel manufacturing

Solar Panel Manufacturing

In order to be able to use light waves from the energy-rich ultraviolet range to generate electricity, nanoparticles of silicon are applied to the solar modules. Hydrogen peroxide is used to dissolve the nanoparticles out of the crystalline silicon so that the nanolayer can be coated onto the solar module after evaporation of the alcohol.
