Canada-based producer of solar grade silicon metal, HQP Silicon Resources, has received financial backing totaling $1.8 million from the government of Québec through the Créativité Québec program.
The funding will be used to finance the installation of a pilot production to develop a new method for manufacturing high-purity silicon metal. The production equipment will be installed at the Montréal-based PyroGenesis (PYR) company’s facility. PYR will be responsible for the design, manufacture, assembly and optimization of the operating parameters of the pilot equipment.
