Taiwanese manufacturers concerned about radiation contamination

Posted on Tuesday, March 22 2011 @ 22:13:19 CET by

DigiTimes reports Taiwanese manufacturers are now concerned that upstream materials from Japan could be contaminated by radiation from the damaged nuclear power plants in Fukushima. However, the Industry Technology Research Institute (ITRI) says the chance of contaminated materials entering the production line is very small.
Additionally, Taiwan's manufacturers also have stringent testing process, ITRI said, adding that electronic products, just like human beings, can be decontaminated using cleaning process to be rid of the radiation particles. Taiwan manufacturers rely on Japan for many key materials.

Taiwan-based manufacturers should not be too worried, said ITRI. From Japan to Taiwan, materials will have to go through several check points for radiation contamination. Moreover, radiation weakens over time and distance, and therefore, impact on electronic product production should be minimal.
