HPQ PUREVAP™ QRR will usher in zero CO2 emission silicon metal manufacturing

HPQ Silicon Inc., a technology company specializing in green engineering processes for silica and silicon material production, is pleased to provide shareholders information on the significant environmental benefits of the PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor (QRR) process currently being developed in collaboration with technology provider PyroGenesis Canada Inc.

As the GEN3 QRR pilot plant testing progresses toward commercial validation, HPQ can now highlight a distinctive environmental advantage of its proprietary QRR process. This advantage, combined with recently acquired intellectual property from PyroGenesis, will enable HPQ to achieve more than just the milestone of zero CO2 emissions in silicon metal manufacturing—it will also incorporate a carbon recycling step that should also yield an additional significant reduction in feedstock usage.

These developments will further enhance the sustainability and efficiency of the QRR production process.

By modernizing the production of high-purity Silicon, our QRR process has the potential to transform a century-old industrial process, known for its significant CO2 emissions, into a carbon credit-generating solution,” stated Bernard Tourillon, President & CEO of HPQ Silicon. “Amidst the global focus on reducing carbon emissions and achieving sustainability goals, the advancements of HPQ hold immense significance in driving the transition towards cleaner and more environmentally responsible silicon production.
