The project relates to the research, development and innovation (RDI) activities for the development of next generation of hyper-pure silicon wafers and ingots for the semiconductor industry, carried out by Wacker Siltronic in the years 2013-2015.
Supporting the knowledge economy, this project concerns RDI to develop next generation hyper-pure silicon wafers and ingots for the semiconductor industry in the period 2013-2015.
Semiconductor RDI activities are not specifically covered by Annexes I & II of the EU Directive 2011/92/EU, and therefore not subject to mandatory Environmental Impact Assessment. The proposed investments will take place mainly inside buildings at RDI facilities already being used for similar activities, and are not expected to have a significant environmental impact on the surroundings. Full environmental details will be assessed during appraisal.
The promoter is a private company not operating in the utilities sector not having the status of a contracting authority, and is thus not covered by EU Directives on procurement.
Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
