DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE HIGH-PURITY SILICON MATERIALS TO EMPOWER NET-ZERO
HPQ Silicon is revolutionizing high-purity silicon metal manufacturing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize necessary feedstock materials without sacrificing economic viability.
HPQ is the only company commercializing new processes for high-purity silicon metal manufacturing that are tailored to the demands and realities of today’s market.
HPQ understands the urgency of contemporary environmental challenges and believes that businesses can and should be part of the solution — rather than the problem. That’s why HPQ’s technologies are designed to displace outdated, inefficient, and heavily-polluting silicon production techniques that are constraining the renewable energy transition.
OUR ESG ADVANTAGE
Our commitment to incorporating ESG into high-purity silicon metal manufacturing reduces overall costs and climate impacts and offers HPQ a decisive cost advantage that can be passed along its value chain to encourage onshoring to North American markets.
HPQ’s proprietary PUREVAP™ silicon manufacturing technologies are patented, setting the stage for the company to scale as needed while reducing global emissions.
With its strategic location in Montreal, HPQ leverages low-cost hydropower to reduce the company’s carbon footprint across the production cycle.
North American jurisdictions are making investments aimed at onshoring high-purity silicon metal manufacturing, facilitating the need for more competitive processes.
To better serve our investors, portfolio firms, and local communities, HPQ prioritizes ESG throughout our corporate mission, purpose, and performance. For us, it’s about driving disruptive change — for the good.
THE HPQ EDGE
HPQ’s PUREVAP™ technologies are designed with superior operational efficiency relative to conventional silicon manufacturing methods. This gives HPQ a decisive cost advantage that can be passed along its value chain.
The PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor uses 25% less material feedstock per Mt of high-purity (>99.5%) silicon to deliver a decisive 20% cost advantage.
PUREVAP™ Nano Silicon Reactor (NSiR) develops nano silicon materials from <0.20 µm up to 5 µm for a range of critical battery applications.
PUREVAP™ Fumed Silica Reactor (FSR) cuts the energy footprint of fumed silica production by 86% to capitalize on growing ESG flows.
