SEMI S29 - Guide for Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas (F-GHG) Emission Characterization and Reduction
This Standard was technically approved by the Environmental, Health & Safety Global Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on June 18, 2012. Available at www.semiviews.org and www.semi.org in July 2012.
NOTICE: This Standard or Safety Guideline has an Inactive Status because the conditions to maintain Current Status have not been met. Inactive Standards or Safety Guidelines are available from SEMI and continue to be valid for use.
This Document provides guidance to characterize fluorinated greenhouse gas (F-GHG) emitted from manufacturing equipment (ME).
This Document provides guidance to characterize F-GHG destruction or removal efficiency (DRE) of an abatement tool.
This Document also addresses continuous improvement planning for emission reduction on ME or an abatement tool.
Greenhouse gases (GHGs) to which this Guide applies are CF4, C2F6, C3F8, c-C4F8, CHF3, SF6 and NF3.
This Guide applies to F-GHG emission characterization from ME.
This Guide applies to F-GHG emission characterization from an abatement tool.
This Guide applies to characterization of consumption, residues, byproducts or recombination of F-GHG through chemical reaction in ME.
This Guide is applicable to abatement tool specification for F-GHG DRE.
It is recommended to use this Guide in semiconductor, TFT-LCD, photovoltaic industries at least.
