Host Country: ThailandJCM Model Project

Energy Saving for Semiconductor Factory with High Efficiency Centrifugal Chiller and Compressor

PP(Japan): Sony Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation / PP(Thailand): Sony Device Technology (Thailand) Co., Ltd.

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

620 tCO2/ year

  • GHG emission reductions = Reference emissions - Project emissions
  • GHG emission (tCO2/y) = Electricity consumption (MWh) x Emission factor(MWh/y)
  • CO2 Emission factor = 0.5(tCO2/MWh)
