VIDEO – HPQ Silicon Receives U.S. Patent for Its PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:37 PM on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021

HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing high value-added silicon products that are sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers – but nobody has yet delivered – until now.   

If that sounds a lot like what other small companies are saying lately, $HPQ differentiates itself as a leader of the pack thanks to the following:  

The Company recently announced Receipt of U.S. Patent for Its PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology

To understand the importance and the implications of this milestone, this excerpt from the press release says it all:

The US patent covers the PUREVAP™ QRR innovative process, which permits the one-step transformation of quartz (SiO 2 ) into high purity silicon metal (from 99.5% to 99.99% Si) at reduced costs, energy input, and carbon footprint. This game-changing advantage means that the PUREVAP™ QRR process not only produces a higher purity silicon material than traditional processes, but it does not require the extremely pure feedstock needed by conventional processes. In fact, the process only requires 4.5 MT of raw material to make 1 MT of Silicon, versus the 6 MT required by conventional processes, a 25% reduction which potentially allows a 20% cash cost advantage versus the lowest cost traditional Silicon producer . Furthermore, as part of our ongoing strategy of protecting and strengthening the PUREVAP™ Intellectual Property Portfolio, a second patent application, focusing on a new and novel process was filed in 2019 and is presently advancing through the process. 

Bernard Tourillon, President and CEO of HPQ commented,

“HPQ has been at the forefront of Low-Cost Green Silicon innovation developments since 2015, and getting this U.S. patent approval, combined with the ongoing commissioning of the GEN3 PUREVAP™ QRR pilot plant , has occurred at an opportune time, as demand continues to rise and bottlenecks we had foreseen are now occurring in the silicon supply chain. With ESG principles playing an active role in materials sourcing, the world is more aware of the difficulty of securing the ESG compliant Silicon needed to meet its renewable energy goals. The reality of chronic underinvestment in new technologies combined with the offshoring of Silicon production capacity, has created a massive opportunity for HPQ and its PUREVAP™ QRR patented process, as we are the only company to bring to market a new process to make Silicon that is perfectly suited to the new demands and realities of the Silicon market

HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing high value-added silicon products that are sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers – but nobody has yet delivered – until now.

If that sounds a lot like what other small companies are saying lately, $HPQ differentiates itself as a leader of the pack thanks to the following:

As such, HPQ firmly believes its silicon products will play an important role in the renewable energy revolution.

ENTER HYDROGEN – “SCALABLE WITH NO LIMITS”

To this end, the Company has also set its sights on Hydrogen with the following 2 press releases:

AUGUST HPQ Launches Revolutionary and Breakthrough Green Hydrogen Extraction Technology Venture

SEPTEMBER HPQ Receives TSX Venture Approval to Proceed With EBH2 Green Hydrogen Extraction Technology Venture

How powerful is this Revolutionary & Breakthrough Green Hydrogen? Try “SCALABLE WITH NO LIMITS”

“EBH2 is scalable with no limits.  It can power a small domestic generator up to ships, factories, buildings, cryptocurrency mines with high energy consumption and even cities.”

Independent validation of the technology is expected to be complete over the next 60 days. If successful, HPQ proposes to bundle the energy production capability of EBH2 systems with its silicon production to further reduce the environmental footprint of its developing high purity silicon, nano powders, and other Renewable Energy products.  Moreover, if successful, EBH2 would provide HPQ with “power plant” capabilities that would allow it to produce its products anywhere on the planet.

If that wasn’t enough HPQ added the following:

“all the while opening up new, and massive addressable markets for a system that can produce cheaply green hydrogen, on demand …. The Agreement establishes the terms of the creation of a new Joint venture Company (“NEWCO”) owned by HPQ and EBH2 that will market, sell and service EBH2 systems and products in North America (Canada, Mexico, and the United States).  …. units could readily replace solar panels or standby generators for homeowners.”

HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing high value-added silicon products that are sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers – but nobody has yet delivered – until now.

If that sounds a lot like what other small companies are saying lately, $HPQ differentiates itself as a leader of the pack thanks to the following:

As such, HPQ firmly believes its silicon products will play an important role in the renewable energy revolution. To this end, the Company had also announced some small but important initiatives in Hydrogen power generation over the last 12 months … but that initiative was significantly accelerated today when HPQ announced HPQ Launches Revolutionary and Breakthrough Green Hydrogen Extraction Technology Venture

How much acceleration? Try “SCALABLE WITH NO LIMITS”

“EBH2 is scalable with no limits.  It can power a small domestic generator up to ships, factories, buildings, cryptocurrency mines with high energy consumption and even cities.”

EBH2 believes it can scale to power the planned high purity silicon and Nano silicon production by HPQ. If successful, HPQ proposes to bundle the energy production capability of EBH2 systems with its silicon production to further reduce the environmental footprint of its developing high purity silicon, nano powders, and other Renewable Energy products.  Moreover, if successful, EBH2 would provide HPQ with “power plant” capabilities that would allow it to produce its products anywhere on the planet.

VIDEO – HPQ Silicon Producing First Samples On Nano Silicon Material Is A Milestone “Equivalent To First Successful Landing Of SpaceX Falcon Rocket”

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:28 PM on Thursday, August 5th, 2021

HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing high value-added silicon products that are sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers – but nobody has yet delivered – until now.  

If that sounds a lot like what other small companies are saying lately, $HPQ differentiates itself as a leader of the pack thanks to the following:

Earlier today the Company took a major step forward when $HPQ announced it successfully produced the first batch samples of Nano Silicon Materials.  

To understand the importance and the implications of this milestone, this excerpt from the press release says it all:

” The HPQ NANO team is now more confident than ever that the PUREVAPTM NSiR will be able to deliver, at scale, and on-demand, a nano silicon for anode production that will be cost competitive. The validation announced today …. was the big breakthrough we were looking for”

Peter Pascali, President and CEO of technology partner PyroGenesis added a little more excitement when he stated:

Words cannot adequately describe the excitement at PyroGenesis at potentially being able to address and solve challenges in developing lithium-ion batteries, which are sought after by many industries but specifically the EV market.”

Using an analogy to describe the importance of this milestone, $HPQ CEO Bernard Tourillon stated it was equivalent to the first SpaceX successful landing of its Falcon rocket.  Specifically, though he was confident in their ability to produce Nano Silicon, actually producing it now removes all doubt and the Company can now focus on:

“… Subsequent batches will be delivered to the awaiting automobile manufacturers plus numerous other entities that have demonstrated an interest in receiving samples.
