2021 49,067 622,344 4,559


2. Energy saving and carbon reduction, GHG reduction policies and measures:

*Our chilled water system runs with a dual temperature system of 7°C and 14°C to reduce the energy loss of temperature conversion needs. 

*The chilled water circulation system and cooling water tower fan use an inverter compressor which allows automatic adjustment of appropriate flow rate and air speed to reduce inefficient energy loss.

*The air pressure system on the other hand adopts both fixed-frequency and variable-frequency systems. The fixed-frequency system is used as the base load operation, while the variable-frequency air compressor as the variable load adjustment pressure. Both systems effectively maintain a constant pressure while reducing the energy consumption of the fixed-frequency air compressor being turned on and off.

* An inverter has been installed in the clean room air conditioning box, effectively maintaining a constant pressure in the clean room and reducing energy consumption.

* As for the basement parking lot and outdoor street-lights, old lights have been replaced with LED lighting to reduce electricity consumption.

* A solar power system has been installed on the roof, and it generates electricity for the Company’s own-use, reducing the purchase of electricity from Taipower.

The GHG inventory in the plant is carried out, and a third-party impartial unit is appointed to verify GHG emissions in accordance with the related specification (14064-1) to ensure a full grasp of the emissions data for future energy saving and carbon reduction benchmarks.
