semiconductors -- Updated Semiconductor Emissions Estimate Calculator now available

Posted: 27 Feb 2013 16:22:07
The Semiconductor Emissions Estimate Calculator has been updated
and is available here:

This emissions estimate calculator tool has been updated.  The
tool is designed to assist in benchmarking and calculating
greenhouse gas emissions from semiconductor operations, using the
2006 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Tier 2b
methodology.  The tool was developed in response to stakeholder
requests.  Its use is voluntary.  

The tool can be used to help owners and operators calculate
emissions required by the semiconductor regulation, which became
effective on January 1, 2010.  The Air Resources Board staff
developed this tool in consultation with stakeholders over the
past several months.  

The purpose of the semiconductor regulation is to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions from semiconductor operations pursuant
to the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (Health &
Safety Code, sections 38500 et. seq.).  This regulation was voted
on by the Board on February 26, 2009, and on December 14, 2009,
the California Office of Administrative Law approved this
regulation and filed it with the Secretary of State.  The
regulation became effective January 1, 2010.

the semiconductor program, please visit: 

If you have any questions concerning the calculator, please
