HPQ GREEN HYDROGEN INITIATIVES
Partnered with Novacium SAS, HPQ is developing a new autonomous process for making hydrogen via the electrolysis of silicon and other materials.
HPQ’s hydrogen-based ventures complement its silicon/silica projects. One of them is an additional downstream market, as previously mentioned, and the other would help the company effectively attain its ESG objectives concerning energy use.
INVESTMENTS ALIGNED WITH STRATEGIC GOALS.
HPQ’s unique advantage of applying leading technological solutions to contemporary Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) challenges creates synergy between the company’s sustainability goals and economic performance.
Based in Quebec, HPQ’s highly-efficient operations are powered by renewable hydroelectricity. This is in stark contrast to the bulk of silicon production, which relies on hydrocarbon fuels — primarily 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 low-emission silicon production technologies, efficient material uses, and geographic proximity to green energy means the company is primed to capitalize on growing ESG investment 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.
