2 Outline Introduction Some considerations PEVM: Formulation and structure Results: 2010 Projections … Key Uncertainties, limitations and caveats Summary of findings

3 Introduction Semiconductor manufacturing: At threshold of low to zero emissions future Path to threshold well documented Recognition of environmental risks of PFC emissions Broad industry cooperation International government-industry cooperation Challenge ahead: Achieving aggressive WSC reduction goal by 2010 What to do? Our aim: Contribute to collective sense of what can be done using emissions modeling

4 Some Considerations IPCC vs. PEVM: Bottoms-up and top- down methods Are PFC emissions correlated with Si consumption? Si demand: Historical and projected patterns Trends in complexity and effect of copper on interconnects on emissions

5 IPCC vs. PEVM: Bottoms-up and top- down methods IPCC estimation method –Bottoms-up: Company inventories –Q(MMTCE) = usage x (1 – UF) x (1 – DE) –Tiered: Rigor varies –Arguably impractical for projecting industry emissions Si - consumption method –Top-down: Not now used – = Si x gas- process EF –“Global” EF to be developed –Partner reports and public information –Arguably practical for projecting PFC emissions

6 Partner Reported ‘99 MMTCE’s vs. MSI Si-Layers (2000 WFW SEMI) (Values not shown to preserve Partner confidentiality)

7 Correlating Partner PFC Emissions Totals (MMTCE) and MSI Silicon x Nominal Number of Layers PFC Emissions, Year Reported MSI-Si, Year WFW Published r2r

8 Historical and Projected Si Demand by Linewidth,

9 Process Complexity Trend

10 Reducing metal layers by switching from Al to Cu: How many?

11 Model Formulation, Structure and Operationalization Formulation Structure, sources of information and operationalization Comparison of emissions factors

12 PEVM: Formulation and Structure ≡ gas-process avg. PFC emissions in year, y ≡ Ē(y) x S (y) –Definition of Ē(y), an emissions factor for uncontrolled emissions, MMTCE per unit area of Si consumed –, from Partner emission reports – S (y),from SEMI WFW database and VLSI Research, Inc. world Si consumption figures Result: Estimate of Ē(y), does NOT account for complexity

13 PEVM Formulation and Structure: Accounting for “Complexity” = Ē(y) S (y) = Σ i λ i (y) s i (y) ē(y) λ i (y) = nominal no. of layers for technology node i and year y (from ITRS); s i (y) = Si consumed (from VLSI Res., Inc.) for node i ē(y) = avg. gas-process emissions per unit of area of Si consumed per average layer ē(y) = Ē(y)/ ; = (1/ S (y)) Σ i λ i (y) s i (y) Result: Est. of gas-process average uncontrolled emission factor

14 PEVM Formulation and Structure: Integrating Concept and Mathematics ≡ Ē(y) x S (y) = Σ i λ i (y) s i (y) ē(y) = Σ i i Result: Project uncontrolled gas-process average (BAU) emissions using = Avg( ē(y) ) and projected s i (y) and λ i (y)

16 Avg. PFC-Process Emission Factors: Formation of Ē(y), ē(y) and Emission Factors Ē(y), MMTCE/billion in 2 Si ē(y), MMTCE/BSI Si-layer

17 Some Results: Application of PEVM Projected U. S. emissions: without and with Cu Comparison of PEVM and IPCC-like Method

18 Projected PEVM PFC U. S. Emissions: With Cu, No Reduction Technology

19 Projected PEVM PFC U. S. Emissions: Without Cu, No Reduction Technology

20 Comparing PEVM and IPCC-like Method IPCC-like Method: Extrap. DataQuest ’90 – ’96 survey figures ~18 MMTCEs cf. 15 and 16 MMTCEs PEVM with and without Cu, respectively CAGR: 20%, ’95 – ’10 period, IPCC-like Partnership CAGR: 13%, ’95 – ’99 period

21 Key Assumptions, Uncertainties and Limitations Emission factors: reflect process-gas average Silicon projections: changes by wafer size and technology generation; metal layers across markets (MPUs, memory, logic, etc.) Disaggregating avg. process-gas, node-specific emissions factors, λ i (y): formation of process/gas-specific emission factors Reduction cases: Selecting technology DEs and penetration rates for alternative control strategies Estimating U. S. share of world emissions

22 Findings Avg.emissions per unit of Si consumed per average layer appears a robust concept BAU projections: PEVM PFC emissions estimates compare favorably with bottoms-up IPCC-like method BAU 2010 projections with Cu: PEVM gives ~8 times corresponding 1995 emissions PFC reduction technologies: On average >90% DE implemented at 200 mm and 300 mm fabs
