One of our core purpose is to enable green manufacturing and operational efficiencies in all new sites / capacity expansion and existing facilities

• Carbon footprint, GHG emissions and water consumption requirements of chip manufacturing / packaging sites have grown exponentially over last decade surpassing the GHG emissions of Automotive manufacturing segment.

• Though the WW planned new Fab / ATP capacities of worth $1Trillion during 2021-2030 are in line with pervasive demand of semis and underlying chip shortage but if all such semi manufacturing capacities are constructed and operated per status-quo then it will be an uncompromising load on environment and will derail the various climate / decarbonization goals and hamper the net ecological footprint of end-product devices using semi chips across the digital economy

• Our purpose is to enable green manufacturing and operational efficiencies in all new sites / capacity expansion and existing facilities leading to a step function change in Carbon footprint, GHG emissions and water consumption of semiconductor industry to realize the journey of our customers to fully CARBON NEGATIVE, WATER POSITIVE, and ZERO WASTE semi manufacturing sites by 2030 - for a truly sustainable future

Granular estimations of Fab -level cost structures of Green solutions coupled with specific regional incentives guide the Total Cost of Ownership of Green Solutions over multi-year Fab Economics

  • Green Manufacturing Fab Economics Model
    • Estimation of Cost penalty on multi-year Fab Economics for change from legacy solution, for each green manufacturing or energy efficiency solution
    • Estimation of advantages across cumulative Carbon Footprint, GHG emission, net Water utilization reduction for each green manufacturing or energy efficiency solution
    • Selection, Prioritization, Roadmap Planning and Implementation cadence of each green manufacturing or energy efficiency solutions across Fab footprint based on guidance via elected economic metrics and clear foresights into incremental multi-year Fab Economics
  • Environmental Impact (Water, Energy, GHG) Forecasting Model of Logic, Memory, Analog IC Chips – across nodes and process complexities tailored for specific Fab / player
    • Granular ability to forecast Ultra pure water, electrical energy consumptions and GHG emissions per node per process to deliver IC product’s overall environmental impact before it gets into production
    • Environmental footprint for specific node / process, to guide chip designers and customer companies to make informed decision on their supply chain
  • Fab / ATP Manufacturing Materials and Equipment Supply Chain Carbon Footprint Assessment Model
    • Carbon footprint assessment of high-usage Fab /ATP Materials & Equipments from their manufacturing process
    • Guide selection of Fab Materials and Equipment (wearable eqipment parts – pads, rollers etc) for Green Manufacturing
  • Carbon Footprint of End Product /Market Segment Forecasting Model
    • Forecasting Carbon Footprint reduction of End Product Device based on specific Green Roadmap of Fab and Assembly (IC manufacturing value chain). Forecasting net Carbon footprint of various semi-component as part of End product
    • Assessment of Carbon Footprint reduction / Energy Efficiency is also done cumulatively per Market segment
  • Competitive ESG Ratings Assessment and forecasting Model
    • Cumulative Carbon footprint and GHG emission reduction impact assessment across Fab / ATP footprint of the enterprise across Green Manufacturing and Energy Efficient Solutions implemented – status quo and forecasting per Green solutions roadmap
  • R&D and NPI Economics Model
    • For e.g. Estimation of CAPEX and OPEX cost structures, possible incentives, TCO (total cost of ownership) of R&D / TD required for Green Manufacturing solutions and NPI cost to introduce per Fab. Model provides clear foresights to R&D / TD requirements of Green Manufacturing portfolio of the company and its impact on overall Fab Economics
* Model list is not exhaustive
* All models have variants for Fab type (Logic, Memory, Analog) and separate corresponding models for ATP sites
