Program members commit to reducing PFC emissions to 10 percent below the 1995 base
line level by 2010. The partnership promotes the use of various environmentally superior
technologies and alternative chemicals. Business case: Partners receive recognition and save money by sharing information on cost-effective
pollution prevention with many of the world’s leading semiconductor manufacturers
committed to climate protection. The partnership provides partners with broad latitude
to pursue the goal of reducing PFC emissions. Services: Technical papers; emissions models. Value to environment: The partnership seeks to reduce PFCs. PFCs are highly potent GHGs and are also generally
very stable chemicals; they possess atmospheric lifetimes from 264 to 50,000 years. Conse
quently, these gases will accumulate in the atmosphere and their effect on the climate will be
felt by many future generations. Sectors most applicable: Applian...
