Showa Denko boosts high-purity ammonia production in Taiwan

TOKYO, JAPAN: Showa Denko KK said that it has expanded its capacity to supply high-purity ammonia, which is widely used in production processes of electronic materials, by stepping up the production capacity of a plant owned by its manufacturing subsidiary in Taiwan from 2,500 tonne to 3,500 tonne a year.

The Showa Denko Group has three bases to produce high-purity ammonia, which are located in Japan, Taiwan and China. As a result of this step-up, the total production capacity of these three bases has been increased to 7,000 tonne a year.

High-purity ammonia is a specialty gas used for forming nitride film in the processes to produce electronic parts such as compound semiconductors including LEDs and LCD panels. The demand for high-purity ammonia is expected to increase in ASEAN region in the future.

SDK will promptly respond to the expansion of the global market for electronic parts, aiming to strengthen and expand its electronic-material-processing high-purity gas business.
