HPQ is developing strategic silicon solutions with transformational low-cost technologies.
- Transforming silica into silicon in a greener and more efficient manner.
- Producing high-purity silicon for high-value applications — including battery technology, silicon nitride, and more — in a single step.
- Ensuring scalability of PUREVAP™ technologies with multiple HPQ-owned patent applications.
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 existing silicon manufacturing, which relies on hydrocarbon fuels — primarily coal — in less regulated jurisdictions. As HPQ operates, sources materials, and manufactures out of North America, there is also no need for cross-world shipping, which represents roughly 3% of all global emissions.
ESG SILICON PRODUCTION
HPQ’s sustainable silicon production technologies, efficient material use, and geographic proximity to clean energy mean the company is primed to capitalize on growing ESG investment flows in the short and long term.
HPQ’s commitment to sustainability is real — and it intends to do its part to address climate change and other contemporary challenges 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.
