Environmentally Proactive

UNIROYAL Optoelectronics is committed to protecting and improving the environment. The UNIROYAL Optoelectronics' state-of-the-art manufacturing facility was founded and designed for the safe, efficient manufacture of low-power Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs).

UNIROYAL Optoelectronics' LEDs are “Green” Products: The world continues to need more light. Now solid-state LEDs are looked upon by technologists, government officials and industry as the ultimate source for low-power alternative lighting solutions to incandescent and other forms of traditional higher power lighting methods for: general, architectural, vehicle, safety, traffic management, industrial and other lighting applications. A recent Government study* reveals: a) LEDs, in monochrome applications, replace filtered incandescent lamps with power savings typically in the range of 50% to 90% depending on color and application and b) with “White ” LED technology, LEDs are expected to replace a minimum of 10% of the global light flux generated from electrically operated light sources by 2025. This translates to global electricity savings in 2025 of $44B or to a reduction in the installed generator capacity of 50GW (equal to 37 nuclear generating plants).

UNIROYAL’s Manufacturing & Safety Practices Are “Green ”: The chemicals used in compound semi-conductor fabrication are hazardous. Bulk gasses, hazardous gases, deionized water, chemicals and electric power are used to manufacture each wafer and during this process wastes are produced. At UNIROYAL Optoelectronics, our Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Program is the essential element to the company’s sustained success. We integrate EHS into everything we do, not just for the short term but for the long-term benefit of the company and our community. UNIROYAL Optoelectronics’ EHS Goals include:

  • Maintain Operations To Not Adversely Affect Our Community’s Air, Water, and Land
  • Continuously Improve Our Company’s Environment and Safety Programs
  • Conserve All Natural Resources and Reduce Waste Generation and Emissions
  • Be Responsible for Compliance with All Local, State and Federal Laws

Integrated factory safety and environmental systems were an integral design feature in the building and development of our foundry. Reactor safety, process and system monitors, integrated throughout the foundry, provide for a safe and environmentally compatible system with effluent handling built in for hazardous processes and procedures.

Many materials are cleaned and reused by these systems, others, such as spent solvents, are collected and sent to facilities that recycle them for resale and reuse. Fuel air emissions are controlled by the use of state of the art pollution abatement equipment. Examples include air scrubbers which “scrub” pollutants out of air exhaust, and wastewater pretreatment systems which neutralize mineral acids and remove wastes from the water, which is then recycled. UNIROYAL Optoelectronics’ Program is also active with our community and local governments to find additional methods for the recycling and use of the waste materials we generate and collect.

Within the UNIROYAL Optoelectronics manufacturing operations and in our outside community, the company seeks a healthful and safe workplace, free of occupational hazards, injury and illness and one that is in concert with our environment. We emphasize individual responsibility by all employees. We encourage employees to report safety and environmental hazards and issues freely.
