HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. (TSX-V: HPQ) is building a portfolio of unique high value silicon products needed for the RER.
Working with PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (TSX-V: PYR), a high-tech company that designs, develops, manufactures, and commercializes plasma-based processes, HPQ is developing the PUREVAP™ ORR and the PUREVAP™ SiNR, two new innovative plasma-based processes which will permit the low-cost manufacturing of High Purity Silicon Metal, spherical Nano-powders, and Nanowires.

HPQ’s PUREVAP™ SiNR will allow HPQ to manufacture the spherical Si nanopowders and silicon-based composites needed by all the manufacturers of next ­generation lithium-ion batteries.

During the coming months, spherical Si nanopowders and nanowires of silicon-based composites samples requested by industry participants and research institutions will be produced using our new PUREVAP™ SiNR.

HPQ PUREVAP™ QRR process will allow HPQ to become the lowest cost (Capex and Opex) producer of high purity silicon (3N – 4N Si)

Strategic Partnership

In addition to our Strategic Partnership with PyroGenesis Canada Inc, HPQ is also working with industry leader Apollon Solar of France to use their patented process and develop a capability to produce commercially porous silicon (Si) wafers and porous silicon (Si) powders.

The collaboration will allow HPQ to become the lowest-cost producer of porous silicon wafers for all-solid-state batteries and porous silicon powders for Li-ion batteries. The plan is to deliver porous Si wafer to a battery manufacturer (under NDA) for testing in 2020.
