HPQ Silicon Sources Raw Material Needed for Purevap™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Operations

ONE STEP CLOSER TO VALIDATING PUREVAPTM QRR GAME CHANGING ADVANTAGES
The PUREVAPTM QRR is an innovative process, which permits the one-step transformation of quartz (SiO2) into high purity silicon metal (from 99.5% to 99.99% Si) at reduced costs, energy input, and carbon footprint.   This game changing advantage means that the PUREVAPTM QRR process not only produces a higher purity silicon material than traditional processes, but it does not require the extremely pure feedstock needed by conventional processes. In fact, the process only requires 4.5 MT of raw material to make 1 MT of Silicon, versus the 6 MT required by conventional processes, a 25% reduction which potentially allows a 20% cash cost advantage versus the lowest cost traditional Silicon producer1.
