Moreover, SDT has been operating its facilities on 100% renewable energy since the fiscal year 2021. In Building 4's clean room, the air conditioning system ensures cleanliness, temperature, and humidity control in targeted areas. Additionally, recycling technology for waste heat and hot water has been integrated.

 

Furthermore, SDT intends to complete the installation of solar panels on Building 4's roof by the end of 2024. By accelerating initiatives to reduce energy consumption and adopting renewable energy sources, SDT aims to maintain its reliance on 100% renewable energy even after Building 4 reaches full operation.
