HPQ Silicon is an advanced materials engineering provider that offers sustainable silica (Si02) and silicon (Si) solutions. Based in Quebec, HPQ Silicon is developing a unique portfolio of value-added silicon products sought after by electric vehicle and battery manufacturers, among other industries.
Silicon is a semi-conductive material and the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust after oxygen (O). Like other energy metals, including lithium, graphite, cobalt, and nickel, silicon doesn’t exist naturally in its pure state — meaning it’s expensive to extract!
As a critical input in a wide range of modern technologies and industrial and consumer goods, the demand for silicon metal is set for robust, long-term growth.
