VIDEO – HPQ Silicon Tech Allows One-Step Transformation Of Quartz Into High Purity Silicon, Enters Most Exciting R&D Phase

Posted by Nik Tsatsos at 5:02 PM on Thursday, April 14th, 2022

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

THIRD PARTY VALIDATION FROM LEADING GLOBAL COMPANIES

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:  

●      $HPQ has already Received It’s First Order for Spherical Nano Silicon Material from Major Automobile Manufacturer

●      $HPQ Signed NDA and Received Request for 4N Silicon Material Samples from a World Leading High-Performance Materials Company

●     $HPQ has already received signed NDAs from at least 2 battery players 

●      They also were Issued U.S. Patent For PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology

SILICON PRICES SKY ROCKETING

And $HPQ timing couldn’t be better as the price for 1 metric ton of Silicon, as of the end of 2021, reached US $10,000 compared to just US $2,500 a year prior.

The timing couldn’t be better as the company’s Pilot Plant Project is about to enter its most exciting R&D phase. PyroGenesis has informed HPQ that the PUREVAP TM QRR commissioning is about 95% completed to date and that they expect the commissioning to be completed in a few weeks.

Mr. P. Peter Pascali, CEO and Chair of PyroGenesis stated:

“Labour shortages with certain suppliers were the cause of having to push back the commissioning from the end of Q1 to the start of Q2. However, with all the remaining commissioning steps to be done in-house, the testing phase should start within the coming weeks,” said Mr. P. Peter Pascali, CEO and Chair of PyroGenesis. “Rest assured that the delays experienced to date are normal for a project of this type, and that this next milestone will complete the next step towards participating in a marketplace estimated by HPQ to be in excess of 3.8 million tonnes per year worth over US$10 Billion by 2025. We look forward to providing an update on progress within the next 3-4 weeks.”

HPQ CEO Bernard Tourillon commented:

“In the coming weeks, when the PUREVAP T M GEN3 QRR pilot plant is functional HPQ will be disrupting Silicon manufacturing, an industry that still relies on a traditional process to make silicon first developed in 1899. The start of the GEN3 PUREVAP TM QRR pilot plant could not have come at a more opportune time. Demand for high purity silicon from the battery and high-performance material companies continues to rise just as 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 difficulties 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 TM QRR patented process. HPQ is the only company to bring to market a new process for making Silicon that is perfectly suited to the new demands and realities of the Silicon market.”

VIDEO – HPQ Breakthrough Green Hydrogen Launch Provides “Power Plant” To Take Silicon Production Plants Global … While Launching Commercial Hydrogen Products

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:05 PM on Tuesday, August 24th, 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:

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.

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.”

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.

VIDEO – HPQ Silicon Ability To Create Cleanest Fumed Silica Has Company Already Fielding Calls From Silicon Players Around The World

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:53 PM on Tuesday, July 6th, 2021

HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing a portfolio of high value-added silicon products sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers.

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:

Recently, the Company announced a major milestone with this press release HPQ Silicon GEN3 PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Pilot Plant to be Commissioned in Q4 2021

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

” Demand for higher purity Silicon, materials that the PUREVAP QRR was designed to produce – but one that traditional silicon producers have a difficult time making, is about to enter a massive growth phase, driven by worldwide demand from the silicones, solar, and batteries industries. The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the closing of old inefficient traditional Silicon plants and combining this with the chronic under investment in new conventional Silicon plants that occurred in the past decade, and the need for more efficient and environmentally friendly processes has created a perfect storm for the industry. HPQ should be a key beneficiary of this new reality.”

Today, thanks to HPQ’s great progress on its silicon mission, the Company announced  “An Agreement to Develop a New Environmentally Friendly Process to Manufacture Fumed Silica”
What is Fumed Silica?  Suffice it to say, it is in heavy demand right now but current producers are going to run into strong environmental “ESG” headwinds as the industry is now moving towards clean and verified Fumed Silica that HPQ Silicon believes it will be able to deliver thanks to its powerful relationship with ESG driven PyroGenesis Canada. The market for Fumed Silica is set to hit $USD 2.2 Billion in 2022 and CEO Tourillon wasn’t shy about his confidence in the Company’s potential to win market share with this quote:

““The business opportunity that this represent should not be underestimated and could be as significant as the ones represented by the PUREVAP™ family of processes we are developing with PyroGenesis”
