Micron New York mega fab faces an environmental exam


Well-known member
"Micron's proposed "mega fab" semiconductor plant in New York State is to be scrutinized by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), which is tasked with preparing an environmental impact statement (EIS) on the project.

The memory chipmaker said in 2022 that it would invest $100 billion over a 20-year period on a fabrication plant to be sited near the town of Clay in Onondaga County, representing the largest chipmaking facility in the history of the US.

Now the US Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, has received an application for a Department of the Army (DA) permit from Micron to construct its facility for manufacturing DRAM chips as the agency has determined that the proposed project may affect the local environment."

I thought folk had given up on the environment?

What happens , happens.

Its jobs that matter at the end of the day is it not?

If people dont like it , they can move elsewhere
