HPQ FUMED SILICA INITIATIVES
HPQ is developing low-cost transformational technologies to make fumed silica.
- Fumed silica has a range of industrial applications, including pharmaceuticals, agriculture, renewables, and more.
- Developed with plasma-based processes, HPQ eliminates hazardous chemicals, HCl releases, and 86% of the energy associated with fumed silica production.
- Ensuring the scalability of HPQ’s fumed silica production through an HPQ-owned patent application.
INVESTMENTS ALIGNED WITH STRATEGIC GOALS.
HPQ’s unique advantage in applying leading technological solutions to contemporary Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) challenges creates synergy between the company’s sustainability goals and economic performance.
Based out of Quebec, HPQ’s highly-efficient operations are powered by an abundance of cheap, clean, and renewable hydropower. This is in stark contrast to the bulk of silicon production, which relies on hydrocarbon fuels — most often coal — in less regulated jurisdictions. As HPQ operates, sources materials, and manufacturers out of North America, there is also no need for cross-world shipping, which represents roughly 3% of global emissions.
ESG SILICON PRODUCTION
HPQ’s sustainable silicon production technologies, efficient material use, and geographic proximity to green energy mean the company is primed to capitalize on growing ESG flows.
HPQ’s commitment to sustainability is real — and it intends to do its part to address climate change and other contemporary problems while growing its portfolio of high-end silicon and nano-silicon solutions.
HPQ produces high-purity silicon in a far more efficient manner relative to standard methods, reducing overall costs, greenhouse gas emissions, and necessary feedstock materials.
