Abstract

The use of cleanrooms is increasing and this growth is expected to continue over the next decade. Compared to an average office building, cleanrooms consume large amounts of energy due to high ventilation and recirculation rates and stringent air treatment requirements. In this study, we examined to what extent the energy demand of cleanrooms can be optimized and thus contribute to the European Green Deal to ensure a more sustainable cleanroom industry.
The study described here builds on the previous studies. In those studies, it was shown through experiments that savings in energy consumption are quite possible, without having a negative impact on cleanroom performance. In the study described here, simulations were used to seek an answer to the question of how that knowledge affects the energy consumption of a cleanroom as a whole and which parameters are still sensitive in this regard.
