Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

The project aims to reduce environmental impact, which is mainly carbon dioxide emissions from energy use through replacing existing equipment with better energy-saving equipment, high-efficiency centrifugal chiller and air-compressor, in the clean room of semiconductor plant in Thailand, Bangkadi Industrial Park.
High-efficiency equipments also control the accurate temperature and humidity in the clean room, work well. The project contributes to the spread of more efficient technology in Thailand.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

365 tCO2-eq./year

= (Reference CO2 emissions) [tCO2/year]
    − (Project CO2 emissions) [tCO2/year]

Air-compressor: 51 [tCO2/year]
Reference CO2 emissions: 731.1 [tCO2/year]
Project CO2 emissions: 679.6 [tCO2/year]

Centrifugal Chiller: 314 [tCO2/year]
Reference CO2 emissions: 4,202.0 [tCO2/year]
Project CO2 emissions: 3,887.7 [tCO2/year]
