EXEED for Cleanrooms

Context & Aim

Utilising the EXEED program enables organisations establish a systematic approach to design, construction, and commissioning processes for new investments and upgrades to existing assets.

Challenge

Applying the EXEED methodology in a regulated environment where product quality is number 1 priority.
Applying EXEED to characterise energy consumption and identify cost, energy and CO2 reductions in a fully operational cleanroom.

Solution

IMRs GreenMode Methods is a methodology designed for energy reduction on production systems. It allows a structured approach to analysing utility consumption & identifying opportunities by providing a full site view of energy consumption, applicable to all utility categories and focuses on investigating how a site utility category translates down onto a factory floor.

 

GreenMode Methods provides energy optimisation and reduction improvements that have been risk assessed against specific factory KPIs.

Results

In total there were 27 opportunities identified across 3 areas (HVAC, Process Gas & Power) in the pilot cleanroom:

  • 7 at Energy service level
  • 5 at process level
  • 1 at equipment level
  • 3 at control level
  • 6 at Operations and control level
  • 3 at management level

Impact

The opportunities identified would yield the following savings:

  • HVAC – 20% reduction
  • Process Gas – 63% reduction
  • Power – 9.5% reduction
