Semiconductor manufacturer reduces carbon footprint, energy use

Jazz Semiconductor commits to further energy and water use reduction and joins Cool Planet Project. Learn more about Climate Registry projects.


Energy efficiency at Jazz Semiconductor

-7.5 million kWh/yr
-5,386 tons greenhouse gases (GHG)
-Part of the Cool Planet Project
-Installation of a recycled high-tech water purification system, retrofitting of special air handlers for semiconductor manufacturing process
-Total equivalent savings: like taking 986 cars off the road

Newport Beach, CA – In an effort to reduce the company’s carbon footprint, use less energy and water, and significantly increase efficiencies, Jazz Semiconductor Inc ., is conducting an ongoing efficiency gas (GHG) emissions–the equivalent of taking 986 cars off the road.  

Climate Registry: projects info

The Climate Registry is a nonprofit collaboration among North American states, provinces, territories and Native Sovereign Nations that sets consistent and transparent standards to calculate, verify and publicly report greenhouse gas emissions into a single registry.

“We have a designated team at Jazz that helps us collaborate for successful energy management with partner companies and vendors,” says Nabil Alali, senior vice president, fab operations and site facilities, Jazz Semiconductor. “We have completed projects that have improved the performance and energy efficiency of air, water, and process and production equipment systems thereby reducing consumption of water, compressed air and electricity throughout our plant.”

As a part of its ongoing efforts, Jazz Semiconductor has joined the Cool Planet Project , an energy efficiency and climate change mitigation program, administered by The Climate Registry (The Registry) and the utility Southern California Edison (SCE). The Cool Planet Project highlights the connection between energy usage and GHG emissions, while providing assistance to measure, verify, and report their entity-wide GHG profile and emissions reductions.
Additional efforts by Jazz Semiconductor for energy savings at the highly renovated 100,000 square foot plant include the installation of a recycled high-tech water purification system and the retrofitting of special air handlers, which are a necessity in the semiconductor manufacturing process.
